Josh In Box The Box

Most of you know that my son Josh has special needs.  He does not walk or talk, but he is very smart.  It was about 2 months ago when Josh learned how to throw a ball.  It was about 2 months ago when Josh decided he could throw everything.  When Josh is finished with whatever it is he is playing with  or drinking he simply tosses the item aside.  Needless to say, I have been nailed in the head several times in the past month with heavy objects.  Josh doesn’t really just toss it he whips it.  That kid has a heck an arm on him.

I wanted to put an end to this problem before it gets out of hand, so I talked to Josh’s occupational therapist about it.  She suggested that I make Josh place everything in a box when he is finished.

That is what we are working on now.  Since he can’t always go to the box I made one that can easily go with him.


Cardboard box (I saved one from the mail)

Mod Podge

Sponge Brush

Scrapbook Paper



I cut the paper to the length of each side of the box.

Applied the mod podge with the sponge brush to 1 side of the box.

I  smoothed the paper on.

I repeated the process until each side was covered.

I choose silly birds for our scrapbook paper, because it suits Josh’s personality perfectly.
