DIY Cardboard Box Entertainment for Kids: Indoor Golf


When Christmas is less than one week away and it’s too cold to go outside, we like to transform a cardboard box into a DIY Holiday indoor golf game. It’s totally worth it because it entertains our kids for hours.

Cardboard boxes have always been, and will always be such a versatile toy, capable of endless hours of activity and creativity.

If you feel like bringing a little golf indoors like we did, see the full tutorial we shared at Momtastic.

For those of you that look at this and see way too much work like most people, you must know…you don’t have to paint a thing or make it fancy. A plain cardboard box with small openings gets the job done. And, if the kids want to be the lead artist, let them.


Golf and Tennis Party

Remember one of our favorite party planning couple, Kimi and Tim? They impressed us in the past with a New Year’s Eve party and now they’re back with a tennis and golf-themed birthday party for Tim!

Who could expect anything less than a draped tent, gorgeous linens, mood-setting lighting and sound, fabulous cocktails and a damn good time?

The duo used the best their companies had to offer…Tim, General Manager of EMI Audio, set up yellow and green LED lighting to match the decor and to keep the party going into the wee hours. And, Kimi, Sales, Marketing & Design Specialist for Après Party and Tent Rental, set up the large tent and decorated the tabletops with Après linen. You can find the linen choices {yellow bengaline, pucci paisley, teal poly apple wildwood} here. And for those non-Minnesota residents…good news, they do ship. {As a loyal customer, I can attest that they do ship, they arrive in time and in perfect condition…plus Kimi and the rest of the team are fabulous to work with}.

Kimi had a few DIY touches with the astro turf she cut to ‘drape’ the tabletops, found used tennis racquets and large foam golf balls and tees {previous props for a party} that she hung with fishing line, and flowers she picked from the yard and placed in cocktail glasses from her kitchen.

Happy Birthday, Tim! Can’t wait to see what you come up with next year!
