Pretend play has so many benefits and with mom or dad likely working from home during this time, this is a fun way to upcycle and set up a workspace for your little co-worker!

Start with:

  • Shallow Cardboard Box
  • Cardboard
  • Paint
  • Paintbrush
  • Scissors
  • Glue

Create it!

Step 1: Cut the tabs off of the cardboard box.

Step 2: Cut a piece of cardboard to use for the laptop screen. Paint and allow to dry.

Step 3: Glue the screen to the top portion of the box.

Step 4: Cut keyboard pieces.

Step 5: Paint the keyboard pieces and allow to dry.

Step 6: Glue the keyboard pieces to the bottom portion of the box.

If you don't have a shallow cardboard box, cut a large rectangle of cardboard and fold in half. Work has never been so fun!
