Play Fridge


  • Cardboard Box
  • Packing Tape
  • Pipe Cleaner
  • Extra cardboard to make shelves


I’ve wanted my kids to have a play fridge for a while, and I knew as soon as  I saw this box that it would work perfectly. I turned the box wrong side out, cut out a door, and added a pipe cleaner for a door handle. The shelves are made out of a second sheet of cardboard that was being used as packing material.

If I were a detail-oriented mom, I would line the inside so that the original contents of the box were on display. But I’m not, and it turns out that that’s a good thing – Emma was initially upset about my using her box this way (Johnny and I put it together during her naptime), but then decided it was okay because the pictures were still on the inside. She likes the little girl on this box, who she says “looks kind of like Emma.”
