Penny creates a calm environment with cardboard boxes.
Banged heads and running inside solved with a large cardboard box.
Penny the room leader of 18 month to 2 ½ year olds uses cardboard boxes from a big chain of stores. They even deliver the boxes to the centre. The cubby house has round windows which means the children are more careful when entering and exiting the cubby.
When the cushions are in the cubby the children are less rough. They can’t run and jump into them. We have less banged head accidents now.
