Oh the Possibilities of a Cardboard Box House

Cardboard box house. Obviously nothing new, and we've made them before, but today I took the extra cardboard from a few flaps and hot glued them into a shelf and also made a roof.
 Suddenly our cardboard house had so many more imaginary play possibilites!

It is currently being used as a fast food restaurant.
The owner is super friendly (and adorable I might add), the prices are great, and the food is DELICIOUS!

and yes, that is the view from INSIDE the box.
I squished as much of myself as I could in there so L could play customer for a while.

and then we took it outside so L could personalize it a bit

Ohhh the possibilities of a cardboard box house!
And seriously..what would I do without a hot glue gun?!
