I was so inspired yesterday by the blog of Joel- especially his Halloween Box, that I went home and made something similar for Neomi. We are not celebrating Halloween, so I just made small figures connected to our everyday-life. I could also imagine robots and space-ships :o)
To make the figures stand I used corks cut in halfs. We might decorate the box today.
I remember when I was a child we made aquariums from boxes and hung fishes inside.
