Do you want a box?

I was recently at a restaurant and the wait staff came and asked, “Do you want a box?” A preschooler quickly said, “I want a new toy, not a box!”


Preschoolers often know what they want and are not afraid to ask for it. They think outside the box and are not kept to standard answers. As the wait staff brought back the food in the box, she asked, “Can I get you anything else?” That preschooler again jumped in to add, “I sure hope that toy is in the box because I still don’t want a box! ”

  • What was something you received in a box that you really enjoyed?
  • When was the last time you thought you knew what you were getting but was completely surprised?
  • Is there something this month that you could do for someone that would be an outside of the box moment?
