What You'll Need
How We Did It
Use construction paper, wrapping paper, or a large roll of brown paper to wrap the boxes. For some of the boxes I needed to use two sheets of construction paper and I wrapped each side in its own sheet. After the block was all covered, I used packaging tape and wrapped it around the outside edges of the block to make it more durable. While I was wrapping, the kids used markers to decorate the boxes. All set...and there are so many ways you can have fun learning and playing with your building blocks!
1) Use your blocks to make a city. I'm not sure if the kids had a better time creating and setting up the city or playing in it with their characters and animals, but it was an afternoon of fun.
