20 coolest toys you can make from cardboard

I’ve always been amazed at how much fun my kids can have with a cardboard box. Seriously, why spend so much money on toys when they can have just as much fun with a big cardboard box? And, thanks to all the smart people on the internet (it’s good there are some of those, considering how many dumb people there are on the internet…but I digress…) you can transform a cardboard box into some really fantastic toys that your kids will have even more fun with. Some of these ideas would be fun to make with your kids (a great activity for the long, dark days of winter that are rapidly approaching), while others would make pretty awesome Christmas gifts (I defy you to find a kid under 5 who wouldn’t be thrilled to see that stuffed animal bed or interlocking castle under the tree).
