How to Make a Bus Out of a Box

A refrigerator box could serve as the perfect material for a bus ride to adventure. The size of the box is well proportioned to hold a child's small chairs for seats. Painted yellow, the box can serve as a school bus. Painted and covered with jazzy stickers, the box becomes a rock and roll road bus, holding musicians and their instruments. Making the bus is a great rainy day craft.
