Oklahoma Mom's Ingenious Trick Ticks All the Boxes

An inspired Oklahoma woman shared on TikTok the ultimate mom hack she found online to keep her little ones entertained while she cleans the house.

The video posted by Gabrielle Dunn shows how she bought herself “30 minutes of unbothered cleaning” by simply giving her kids some crayons and then putting them in a cardboard box.

Dunn posted the video with the caption, “Pure genius. Glad we hadn’t broken the box down yet!"

“Anything that provides an activity for small children while I have a small moment to myself is worth trying,” she said.

The idea proved to be a big hit with TikTok users, with the clip racking up over 11 million views at the time of writing. Credit: Gabrielle Dunn via Storyful
