Rocket Ship- HOURS of entertainment!!


Last month I picked up a refrigerator box from our local appliance store. I got all dizzy spray painting it while the kids watched from a far. The next day dad helped secure the corners with zip ties and cut out some windows. Over the last several weeks the kids both spent countless hours decorating the inside with markers and playing rocket ship. I love that it’s more comfortable than under a blanket in the living room, and the kids are taking their imaginative play outside while still being shaded.

Imagine all of the things we could create with these huge boxes!!



  1. Oh sure you have to one up me! I just give my kids a plain box! lol. I have been contemplating play-structure out of old tires, barrels, etc. But your rocket ship looks a lot of fun!

  2. That is such an awesome idea. I always wondered how people just got such big boxes without buying the appliances lol. Maybe I need to call around and secure one or two!
