Here are our bonfire boxes.

Basically shoe boxes covered in black paper/tissue. Sticks from the garden with orange tissue paper in it for flames, they have drawn on the black paper and stuck shiny paper on for fireworks. As you can see my daughter is very pleased with hers but its a work in progress :)

I posted on freecycle for cardboard boxes and am collecting a load more from an independent shoe shop near me tomorrow, I had loads of responses to it so I am now finding things to do with them :) I got them mainly as a basic construction toy.

They are fab!

You could also use those shoes boxes to make a snowy scene with cotton wool for the snow and then build a snowman :D
