    Hello! This was a wonderful party. I am hosting a Where the Wild Things Are party in March for my son. I love your craft ideas. Could you explain the reason for the boxes? That stumped me! Thank you for sharing your great ideas. They were "wild!" Christina

    Thanks for the questions! The boxes were left over from making the boat. I just grabbed all the boxes on the loading dock and had way too many. I felt like the kids would like making a wild rumpus with them - and they did. Theme wise the box's were a stretch but it was a such fun for the kids and they needed something active to do. Let me know if you have any other questions.

    That solves the mystery. Thanks! Your son's costume is adorable. Did you make it? Also, was the boat made by taping on the inside big boxes together and then painting the outside. How did you secure the sail? I was just going to make a 2 dimensional boat as decoration on a wall in our basement, but you have inspired me! I am sure the boys will enjoy a "real" boat so much more.

    I took two nice large boxes and cu them totally flat. They I used red duct tape to secure them together in the middle and into points on ends. Then I painted it with one thin coat of red paint and drew the lines on with a large black sharpie. I lined the top with red duct tape too. The sail is a cheap white sheet dyed yellow because I couldn't find a yellow one. My husband built a quick wooden frame that sits inside the boat. Then I stapled gunned the sheet scraps to the frame.
