Not Just a Box

As all parents know, this time of year we often see our little ones having more fun with the boxes their new toys came in, instead of their new toys. Right?

I had seen this idea to make a box more fun one day when i was cruising around pinterest....wasting time. There was a surprise waiting inside this big box for Delilah when she woke from her nap the other afternoon.




That's right, this is no ordinary box.....it is Not a Box(check out the book it is pretty cute)...it is a box of lights, a disco box!!!




She entered hesitantly, but once inside she was amazed by it all. She makes the cutest sounds of wonder and amazement!!!





You can see the joy all over her face.




I love how something this simple can entertain and captivate a little one for so long. Even my big kids(9 and 7) were quite taken with it!




Lets be honest i want to crawl in there for a little while and just enjoy the pretty lights and let all the busyness of Christmas go away for a bit.




Merry Christmas to you all. Thanks for being such wonderful blog friends. I hope you all have a great Christmas with your families, friends and loved ones.

Happy New Year Leslie! The box is a great toy, love how much that idea worked out for you! Hopefully, you'll be seeing more of me this year as I've moved to a more quilter-friendly apartment (light, space, tapable-floor) :)

All the best,
Christine
