It is Children’s Day this Sunday and to help you celebrate Mums on Top is giving away 10 Cardboard Houses to 10 lucky families. A good cardboard house can go a long way to transforming an ordinary afternoon in the backyard into a piratical rumbustification; a hero’s journey to a faraway castle; a battle of the goodies verses the Evil Cheese Monster or simply “base” in a good old fashioned game of that Kiwi Classic – ‘Go Home, Stay Home’.
These Cardboard Houses are large enough for two or three children to sit inside of. They have a door and windows that open and shut and a roof that pops on the top. They are New Zealand made and are totally un-branded with a plain white exterior.
For us a Cardboard House is the perfect symbol of the classic New Zealand Childhood – using your imagination and simple, basic, cheap objects (such as a cardboard box) to create the perfect lazy summer afternoon of non-stop fun.
To win one for your family leave a comment below or email us at email@example.com (subject heading Children’s Day) and tell us your best tip for keeping the kids occupied on a Sunday afternoon.
