Not A Box

Today I was reminded of just how much the simplest materials can spark Jason & Jenna’s imagination. Right after dinner, a box was delivered from Amazon and they immediately wanted me to open it. To me, it contained a smaller box with three packages of Huggies Wipes, but to Jason and Jenna the contents were much more elaborate. Jason’s box became a car that, for some reason, needed a telescope to operate, so he quickly ran to the recycle bin and found the requisite paper towel roll. Jenna’s box needed stickers, lots of them. And once it was sufficiently decorated, it served as a chair, a hat and even a horsey.

Here is our homage to Not a Box by Antoinette Portis:

This is not a box
