Cardboard Fortress For Your Community's Princes and Princesses Hot
One of the most popular event on ResidentEvents.com is our Cardboard Drive in Movie for kids. Kids, just like cats, just seem to love to get into boxes, which is why whenever an appliance is ever purchased, the kids get a brand new "present" in the form of giant box they can play in. So it's time to take that idea and expand it to a community-wide fort building event!
Start planning today and save all the big boxes that come to the community when you order new appliances, and when residents move in, tell them that if they have any large boxes after the move, they can donate them to the future community fort.
After that, all you have to do is let your creativity run wild - enlist the residents in the build job and create mazes, secret passages, and other elements to their giant cardboard fortress. Give the kids some paint and let them decorate their fortress masterpiece, as well!
In the end, you will have made something that the kids will love and will occupy them for hours, and you will have made something that the parents will love since it will occupy their kids for hours!
Update: A fun addition to this idea would be to lay out a couple of blue tarps next to the fort to be the open ocean. Then design a few boxes to be pirate ships ready to storm the castle walls!
