Fun with Boxes

Thomas kept himself rather busy while Emily was spending the night at a friend's house. The armies were storming the castle:

We need more packing tape now!

Wow! My son does the same kind of thing all the time. I bought a dozen rolls of multi-colored masking tape (the painter's kind, so it comes off the wall easily) at Oriental Trading. It wasn't too expensive.

We go through tape very quickly around here!

Looks like fun at your house!

That's a cool idea. I wasn't sure if masking tape would hold the boxes together. The packing tape does a good job. He started using duct tape and got frustrated because it didn't stick well, for some reason.

Ah...needs to stick super well. Well then duct tape and packing tape are excellent choices! My boy is I believe younger than yours, so that engineering issue hasn't come up yet. He mostly strings them around things (the house, his sister, etc.) "caution tape" style.

I'm going to check back here for more building ideas!

Yay, more box fun! I'll have to show this to Jonathan - and then I'm sure our living room will be transformed as well!

That's a great looking castle. Very fun! Way to go Thomas.
