100 Days of Play: Plastic Box Play

100 Days of Play is  great project organized by Life at the Zoo and Sun Scholars in order to engage more parents in quality play time with their children.

Our play plan is always simple: we use what is handy and we let our children get creative.

So… toy box became a handy vehicle! I don’t remember whichever of my playgroup kids came up with this idea, but it was fun!


All you need is 1 sturdy box and kids/adults willing to sit inside and take turns dragging the box around.

Ours has wheels so that made it easier!

Kids were occupied for good 30-40 minutes. They took turns, they politely asked each other to let them have their turn. They also took some toys inside, little windmills and what not!


How do you play with your children?

  1. Thanks Varya!! I love that you and your kids found a new way to play with something you had around the home! Perfect! Thanks so much for sharing in our 100 Days of Play. Your post has been linked and shared!

  2. Varya, this is a hit with my son, the kids I babysit, and my preschool students! It’s boxes or laundry baskets over here. So glad you shared this for the 100 Days of Play!

  3. What fun! This weekend I was scrubbing some well used plastic bins outside, with the help of the grandkids, and once they were clean I filled them up with the hose and each child sat in a bin up to their chins in water giggling! I grabbed some cups for filling and pouring, and they had so much fun. The towels they dried off with became impromptu housing. Once they start with creative play, things just seem to flow.

    • Sounds like you and the grandkids had a wonderful time! We don’t have a backyard so we can’t play with water much, just at the beach 🙂
