I’m a mom of two little boys under the age of two. Due to the challenge of dragging little people out with me to go shopping these days many of our purchases are online which means the accumulation of boxes. With an immobile 8 month old and an abundance of cardboard I decided to turn our baby into a little, elderly ‘snowbird’ on his way to Florida in his cardboard 1981 Cadillac Coupe Deville. After measuring and cutting (…and remeasuring and more cutting because that is often the nature of DIY projects) the cardboard to fit snugly over his push car I began painting the cardboard car with old, leftover house paint. I created the “SNOBIRD” license plate using cardboard, paint, a ruler, pencil and Sharpies. After it was completed I secured the cardboard to the push car using duct tape. Upon the Cadillac’s completion my cute, snowbird sped away to a Florida without even looking back to say “thanks, mom!”
