The last time I talked about Caroline’s super hero party it was concerning the scavenger hunt, bean bag toss, and the chest letters they received.
Today it’s, “Exploring the City!”
When I looked on pinterest for Caroline’s super hero party I came across party decor which had buildings with it. I thought, wouldn’t it be fun for the girls to be able to play in the buildings?
Otherwise known as, “Cardboard Boxes are so Much Fun!”
One of the missions the kids had to complete was, “Explore the City.” This simply meant, bring out some cardboard boxes and let the kids have fun.
A week before the party, the kids and I drove around gathering big boxes that had been discarded in the new subdivision they are building near us.
We then set up a painting station on our driveway and got to work painting the boxes.
I used regular house paint that we already had so the cost for this project was $0.
Caroline wore her painting outfit – yellow pants, old white shirt, and a pair of the boys’ old water shoes – always looks like she’s a retired Floridean 🙂
Everyone got in on the action.
Once the boxes were dry, my husband cut out doors and windows in each box.
And here are the final results –
Every Super Hero town needs a City Hall…
A Jail to put the bad guys…
And the library!
The cardboard boxes stayed in our house another week before they were completely destroyed.
