Fall is here, which means winter isn't far off. Here in Chicago, where I live, that means there will soon be lots of time indoors and I'm already searching for ideas to keep the kids occupied. Recently I ordered something that came in huge boxes and my kids had a field day with them. Then I realized that I can keep the kids occupied during the cold winter months and be eco-friendly...all with a an old box! So I've rounded up 7 fun plans for cardboard creations, some to make yourself and some that are already made for you. - By Nicole Balch
