The fastest way to a little boy’s heart is through a cardboard tunnel! Jake is only 2 and has already amassed quite a collection of trains, hot wheels and matchbox cars. His collection usually rolls along our living room couch, windowsills, counters, chairs, tiles, etc. I remembered pinning this fun tunnel from Celebrate Every Day With Me, when Jake was just 6 months old and had already developed a love for anything with wheels. I had a feeling that I would be putting that pin to use one day.
This project is super easy and cheap. I started with an empty Huggies diaper box because it was the perfect size and we have lots of them. You don’t want a box that’s too big or else the cars and trains might get lost inside.
Since the box had graphics on the outside, I used this wrapping paper from Paper-Source around the entire box to create a blank canvas. (Sort of funny I wrapped my cardboard box to make it look like a cardboard box). Raid you stash of paper scraps to dress up your box with tracks and roads. I happened to have this fun paper that already looked like tracks.
