Make Box Building Blocks

When some of us were young we played with "brick' blocks that were made of cardboard. They were large, sturdy, and stack-able and took a lot of abuse. The boxes from juice pouches that are popular now, such as Capri-Sun are just the same size and about as strong. Stuff them with news paper, tape them tightly shut, cover them with what you choose. I have used cloth, brick patterned contact paper, tissue paper and glue - you name it! They are a great frugal replacement for the hard to find, expensive, real thing.

Yes, this idea will work great for me, as my grandchildren always drink those Capri-Sun "Roaring Waters" drinks. As I was opening a box of them one day, my 3 year old grandson told me, "Gwammy, this is weally just water with ingweediants added." He'll love these new blocks!

Good way to save these things from the landfill - thumbs up! btw, I'll probably "date" myself, but I remember when these blocks were made of wood.
