I made this cute book box and thought I was super clever because my son loves putting things in boxes….now I can get him to clean up his own books! To decorate the book box, I wrapped some leftover black yarn around the top to give it some texture.
Apparently what I saw as decoration, my son saw as “leash.”
A few weeks after putting the box in our living room, I was working in the kitchen and heard a noise that sounded like something being dragged across the floor. I turned around and my son had a big wad of yarn in his hand, which he had unraveled from the top of the box and was now using as a leash to drag his book box into the kitchen and toward the stairs.
