One of the custodians asked me if I wanted some giant boxes last fall. I didn't know what I was going to do with them, I just knew they were giant and had potential! I decided to turn one into a big frame that I can have my younger students use to act out paintings from Art History. I finally had time to cut the opening and paint the box at the end of the school year. I didn't use a yard stick or worry about making anything perfectly symmetrical, I like it a little off balance. I drew the frame with a marker first then painted it with tempera paint. I cut off the flaps from the open side so the students can either walk in the side or step through the hole. I'm sure this could also be used as a puppet theater.

I still have some not-quite-as-big boxes and I'm trying to think of the best use for them.
