Mystery Box Challenge For Kids

I am about to let you all in on a huge mom hack right now. I created this mystery box challenge a few weeks ago, and it is literally one of the easiest things I have ever put together for my kids.

The idea came up out of sheer exhaustion one day. My 4 year old was following me around asking to do a craft, and I had literally no idea what she could do. Then I had a lightbulb moment. I told my girls to go wait in another room, and I ran around the house throwing random objects and crafts that we laying on the floor in town baskets for them.

Next I presented them their ‘mystery boxes’ and told them they had the next hour to create something amazing with what they were given.

Seriously you guys, one had a dirty sock in it, and they other had a fork I found under our couch cushion (and before you judge me, go take a look under your cushions, and tell me how clean it is).

Anyways, this was a huge hit, and now my girls ask for me to make them mystery boxes all the time.

Here are a few examples of things I have put in them, but let your imagination fly with this craft!

P.S. You are welcome!

Here are a few examples of the different boxes I have created, but seriously, everything is a go in this game!
