Big Boxes

When I was a little girl my first grade teacher had a wonderful idea. She just happened to have a big refrigerator box that she made into a little “house” for her students when they were good. She flipped that box upside down, placed it over a vacant school desk, and cut a door and window in it. The outside was painted with flowers and smiley faces and such things. I was always good but somehow I never got my turn.

I dreamed that some day I would have a humongous box, that would sit in my front yard. I would live in that box, and I would invite all the children in the neighborhood to come visit. I would be the most popular girl in school! That box would have a front door and a back door, with several windows. I don’t know what I thought would come in that big of a box but I was sure my parents would buy whatever it was just so I could live in it! I sure had a wild imagination but didn’t we all?

I was trying to find a photo of something similar to what my 1st grade teacher did but holy crayoli, look at the ideas I found! I made a Pinterest Board of Refrigerator Box Playhouse ideas just so I could share with you! These boxes are more elaborate than anything we had in the 1st grade and definitely more than my little girl self ever imagined! Check them out! Maybe you can create something for your toddlers or your young school age child for quiet study! Have fun!

  1. Toddlers, school aged children? I want to make one for me….lol. These are awesome, wish I had such an imagination when I was growing up. I grew up with male cousins, when I was 8 years old I had cousins ages 12-26. None of them near my age, and hence I grew up a total tom boy.
