How To Re-Use Your GIGIL Box!

With our box, it's not just what's inside that counts! We source quality boxes to ensure your STEM kit materials arrive intact. You can reuse this box in so many ways! Once you complete your activities, the options are endless. Here are some of our favorite ways to reuse our boxes.

Sensory Bin

Sensory bins help children explore their different senses through hands-on and open-ended play. Create your next sensory bin activity in a GIGIL STEM kit! The attached lid means you can close and store to use over and over.


Our boxes stack and fit perfectly on shelves and under furniture. They are the perfect size to fit shoes, keepsakes, and toys. Even completed STEM projects! Add a label to the side to help with accessibility.


Have your children start an indoor garden and use your STEM box to start your seedlings. Fill with soil, plant your seeds, then find a well-lit area for your new plants to grow. Your children can track the growth and watch their new plants sprout and grow!

Doll Bed

Time for some creativity! Cut the lid off the box then let your children craft a bed for their favorite toys. They can fill the inside with what they think is the comfiest. Then decorate the outside using markers, paints, or construction paper!

Craft Supplies/Ribbons

This box is the perfect length and depth for organizing and storing ribbons and strings! DIYnThings has a great video explanation here.

Marble Runs

Marble runs are a creative way to explore problem-solving and work on fine motor skills! Cut the lid off of your GIGIL STEM box and let your child use their imagination to build a marble course!


Our box material is super strong and durable which makes for the perfect cardboard to make a weaving loom! View a tutorial from Moutain Art Teacher here.


Boxes are the perfect building blocks to let your kid's imagination take over! Encourage them to build, stack, and create with the boxes. For inspiration, visit Makedo for an incredible cardboard box building resource.
