I love dioramas, I think it's the idea of creating a tiny world in a shoebox that captures my imagination. What's neat about this one is that it catches a small moment versus a larger landscape. Details are at Krokotak.
I love a good cardboard box craft like this one at Creative Jewish Mom. Whether it's a pantry box or moving box the same technique will work - a little paint and glue turns them into building blocks to be used for pretend play!
