N had a pirate party for his 4th birthday last week. I happened to see a few oven boxes sitting behind an appliance store and decided to try to build a pirate ship for the party. We found directions on the internet at www.mrmcgroovys.com This site is amazing and has directions for all kinds of cool things that you can build with cardboard boxes. We used a jigsaw to cut the cardboard and duct tape in place of the rivets that they sell on Mr. McGroovy’s site. This was a great family project as the kids watching something that big take shape. There are definately more cardboard crafts in our future and we may even decide to purchase the building rivets!
