Awesome Parents Recreate Movie Scenes with Their Baby

Every week for the last three months, parents Lilly and Leon Mackie have been recreating movie scenes with their now 10-month-old son Orson in an ongoing project that is cleverly dubbed Cardboard Box Office. From a creative homemade rendition of Jaws to their latest take on Home Alone, the awesome parents are dedicated to making some memories with their tiny tot and having a whole lot of fun in the process.

The Sydney, Australia residents (by way of New Zealand) first embarked on the project upon the realization that they had accumulated a lot of cardboard boxes from their big move to a new country. They say, “With our social lives drastically altered we decided to find a way to make some of those housebound weekends a little more fun.” They also playfully explain, “The costumes, props, and sets in Cardboard Box Office are created entirely out of everyday household items, toys, cardboard, and three individuals slowly losing their sanity.”

Be sure to follow the creative family's project through their website or on Facebook where they always offer sneak peaks of their next installment.
