We joke that since the lead paint recalls, that we’re all happy to let our kids play with cardboard boxes. But the reality is – kids like to play with cardboard boxes. So when is a cardboard box better than a cardboard box? When it’s actually a rocket ship.

If you live in a more temperate climate, stick this sturdy, recycled paper rocket in the backyard and watch the kids go nuts. If you’re still in the tundra zone like I am, make space in a playroom or den, get out the crayons and paints, and keep the kids from succumbing to the winter crazies.
