Ways to Entertain Kids Indoors with Cardboard Tubes

Are your kids getting as stir crazy as mine are lately?

The weather, people being sick, trying to stay away from people who are sick…  It’s been keeping us home a bit more than usual, and let’s just say some days the house is NOT big enough for me and the two kids.

A couple days ago I brought up two of the empty Christmas wrapping paper tubes and left them in the living room.  They have been used as super long telescopes, pretend stilts, and for a brief period, swords.  Of course, eventually I found them doing something like this with them:making a car tunnel


I helped them out a bit with some duct tape and the use of the toy shopping cart for support, and they spent a good 30 minutes just sending car after car down the tunnel.
