Throwback Thursday: down in the sewers

Let’s revisit a post from last year, about getting crafty with an old suitcase! 

I often dip into Pinterest, and come away feeling inspired to make all kinds of things.

But I never tried to make any of them. Until now, that is.

Inspired by Pinterest, I decided to turn this old suitcase into a play set.


Yes, inside this old, unloved suitcase is a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles play set!


I made it with bits of packaging, boxes, paper, pens, crayons, glue, a few screws, double sided tape, and a little bit of paint; you know, just stuff we had at home.


Let me show you around…


My sons have TMNT toys, but had nowhere to play with them.



Master Splinter looks on.


Let the fun begin!


It doesn’t look like much from the outside…


…but the NYC sewers are inside!


I know this doesn’t look as fantastic as some of the similar suitcase creations on Pinterest, but this isn’t bad for a first attempt, and it cost nothing…
