Even a plain box can become a beautiful creation + you could have a lot of fun!
The main purpose of the box is to protect the precious cargo - your new Tukataka Learning tower from damage during delivery. However, you don’t have to discard the box immediately. On the contrary, the packaging box could potentially have a multitude of uses. All you need is a little creativity, and you could transform it into a play castle for little princesses, a space rocket, a submarine or even a little play stove!
Creativity knows no bounds! Encourage your little one’s creative mind, and you will be surprised just how many ideas can materialise out of a little bit of fantasy + you could have so much fun together :-) While it may be you who would take the lead during the manual creations, your little munchkin can help with colouring, sticking or other little tasks like cutting the shapes, etc. So, get your scissors, glue, coloured paper, colouring pencils ready, and let your creativity flow.

These three machines were created by a junior engineer, who was assisted by a couple of senior engineers (e.g., parents) from just one box! Aren’t they gorgeous?
It can be quite tricky to repurpose the box several times. Why not check out these creations for single box usage? :-)
If your child prefers the comfort of their home (compared to travelling to space), you can play together with their new stove or warm yourselves up by the new fireplace. :-)
These little girls have just finished preparing a tasty dinner and invited their friends to join them.

Why not come up with an unusual idea for your little explorer? You could have so much fun together!
We hope that you (and especially your little one) will be intrigued by these few tips and ideas. After all, wouldn’t it be great to find that your child could be a future engineer or even better - a spacecraft engineer at NASA! :-)
