How about pulling out the Christmas decorations a little early this year? (My sister-in-law showed me this idea, and I think it is totally cool.)
What you need:
- large cardboard box
- strand of Christmas lights
What you do:
- Take the pen (or paintbrush or something with a similar tip) and poke holes in the top of the box.
- Push the Christmas lights through the holes and tada! You have a star cave.
You can make it darker by covering the opening with a blanket and such. Feel free to get really creative and make actual constellations that you can find outside at night later!
Big thanks to Play at Home Mom for the original idea!
