Bet Your Kids Like the Cardboard

When I was a kid, the best present we had was when my mother gave us kids boxes from the TV and the refrigerator.  We hid in them; drummed on them to make music; made houses and tunnels when we got enough of them.

Retrieve a box from work and give it to your kid and if you have time perhaps you can create some toys with the kids.

Thomas and Percy the Tanks

Guaranteed - months of fun.  And after they have been damaged due to train crashes, the kids can learn to fix their toys!
