Having visited most of the local parks in the area, we finally found probably the best park to visit on a sunny day. Consisting of a sunken pirate ship and a series of tree houses, in addition to the usual slide, swings and rockers, the park is based in a large green area and centres around a large sandpit area.
With a working hand pump, water is then channeled into basins and wheels.
Having just moved into the house we had an abundance of strong brown cardboard boxes sitting in the garage. As my youngest sleeps for over an hour a day I needed to do something to amuse H during this time.
Starting off with just one large removal box, we taped up the box so that it was fully enclosed, and then using a box knife, I cut out the circular doors and the seating area. As we wanted to paint the car we needed cover over all of the tape with paper.
Once the glue had dried we painted the car red and then added a grill, using coloured lollipop sticks and some headlights
To finish off the cardboard box racing car we packed a small box full of paper and cardboard, covered it in coloured paper, and put it in the car as a seat. We also added a dashboard and registration plates.
