Is Tommy favourite saying at the minute. He loves cardboard boxes and whenever he sees a large box he gleefully demands that you build him a house with it. Along with generations of children before him he is fascinated with cardboard boxes. He will climb in, on, under them, or failing that he will walk round with them on his head. A door cut in the side is fascinating to him.
In Shanghai last week the 3 year olds were no different. Playfully colouring in the inside with chalk and then climbing in ( I waited fearfully for the complaints about dusty uniforms from parents which thankfully never materialised) building cardboard cities with their own tower blocks, ariels and lights.
Children are the same the world over – imagination is priceless and cardboard boxes are free
