Toddler Blocks

Toddler Blocks (8)

Leftover juice boxes make perfectly-sized blocks for toddler hands. Really the only limit on how many of these you make depends on a) how many boxes of juice you’ve saved and b) your own patience!

To make each block, cut a juice box in half. (Make sure the inside is clean and dry). Fit the top of the box over the bottom so they nest together, and then tape shut.

Now cover with wrapping paper! The only paper I had on hand was leftover from last Christmas, which meant the finished blocks almost looked like presents.

I had originally intended to make a dozen or so, but by the time we had five, Veronika just wanted to play!

Of course these were great for stacking into wobbly towers.

We could also make a tunnel just big enough for her smallest toy cars to drive through.

This was a big hit, and she requested I repair the tunnel each time it tumbled over.

She could also load them into her larger trucks as cargo!

In sum, these were fun little blocks for not too much parental effort.
