Miss E wanted a doll cradle, so we added that to Daddy's honey-do list. Being a creative engineer, he asked if cardboard was okay. Miss E said she was fine with that, so he dropped by REI, found some large boxes in need of reuse or recycling, and sketched out some plans based on a real cardboard baby crib he found on the web. After a few hours of cutting and gluing, voila!, a lovely doll cradle that rocks back and forth. It's perfect! We left it plain so Miss E can decorate as she wishes; her choice. She thinks her Daddy is the greatest!
