My parents just bought new patio furniture. A table, 8 chairs and a chaise lounge.
The furniture came in A LOT of heavy duty cardboard boxes. Our Papa built a HUGE playhouse out of them for the girls to play in.
My mom said he spent almost 3 hours on it and didn't come inside until well after dark! It is complete with a door that opens and closes, windows, and a table and chairs. Since these pictures were taken, he's also added a stove and a fridge. He even made a little frying pan with eggs in it - all out of cardboard! He is so fun.
Last week he got out all sorts of art supplies - chalk, paint, crayons - and let the girls go to town decorating it. It kept them happy and busy for hours. While there may be lots of Papas who would go to all this trouble for their grandkids to have a little fun - I don't know many who would be happy to have this cardboard contraption remain indefinitely in their driveway! But our Papa is. And therefore he ROCKS! Thank you Papa. We love you so much!
