  • If you have things on a shelf that you could put in a basket you can use the boxes as baskets. All you have to do is get some material or something to cover what the box is and make it look nice.

  • I decoupage them with paper that matches my interior and use them for storage boxes.

  • I reuse diaper boxes for clothes that dont fit my baby anymore. Since i have limited room..i fill them up w/clothes, label w/the size and give them away!

  • He would understand a drum set. show him how it works. I was at a friends house the other night for dinner and some scrap booking, her dd is about ten months I was playing with her got out a pan and sat in front of her hit it with my hand, it made a lovely noise, she laughed and hit with her hand. Now she uses everything as a drum. Her high chair tray, kitchen table, what ever she can find. I called her mommy today and heard her making all kinds of noise.

  • I use the tall diaper boxes at trash cans in the babys room, I empty all the diaper out put a trash bag in it then throw her dirty diaper in the box. Or for storage, I also give them to my DD she is 3 and uses the long diaper boxes for baby beds LOL

  • I use old diaper boxes for my kids toys, I don't like my kids going up and down the stairs so I leave toys down stairs but it looks like a big mess. So I got the old diaper boxes and put all their down stair toys in them. Now I also use old boxes for things like the kitchen trash or old clothing that my kids grew out of. Once the boxes are full of trash I throw them and once the boxes are full of clothing I find women with kids who need them and give them away. Diaper boxes come in handy for a lot of things.
