Think Outside the Box

Summer, it’s all about fun, friends and new adventures but sometimes parents and kids get into the summer slump. It is just easier to turn on Despicable Me for the hundredth time instead of try something new or take a trip that will break the bank. I remember as a kid every year as the last day of school bell rang there was a since of freedom and excitement of what the next few months of summer would bring. The first few weeks were jam packed with traveling and hanging out with my best buds but soon mom and dad got busy, the budget got thin and the excitement wore off.  

Parents, Grandparent, Aunts, Uncles, Babysitter: your savior is here. Yes, that’s right it’s a cardboard box.
