- Get an old box and fill it with anything you would throw out or recycle: egg cartons, plastic containers, paper bags (I would stay away from plastic bags for obvious reasons), straws, "kids cuisine" containers, water bottles, Styrofoam cups & take out containers, etc.
- Clean everything that needs to be cleaned.
- Get out the markers, glue, paint, colored paper, etc. & let their imaginations take over.
