After planning a move, you most likely have a great deal of leftover boxes and moving supplies. While many simply recycle their boxes, here at St. Pete Moving and Storage, we think it’s more fun to re-purpose those boxes for family fun! Take an afternoon after moving in to enjoy your new home and try out our household movers’ ideas on how to use your boxes to get creative.

Re-Purpose Those Cardboard Boxes

Create an Obstacle Course – Ideal for large moving and appliance boxes, an obstacle course is a great way to have fun in your new home before everything is perfectly set up. Build obstacles like a wall of boxes that you have to plow through or a group of smaller boxes that you can jump over. Let the obstacle course winner choose where to get dinner from that night!

Build a Fort – Forts of every shape and size are a possibility with old moving boxes. Make it extra special and create a castle, or use your fort for a movie night complete with popcorn and snacks.

Make Party Decorations – You’re in a new home, so you should celebrate! Use those cardboard boxes to create all kinds of party decorations like signs and cardboard flower garlands. Set up one of the boxes with markers around it so that people can sign it with a special welcome note!
