K is for Kids’ Craft Box

K - Kids' Craft Box


So what is a Kids’ Craft Box? A big ol’ box filled with all sorts of craft materials for the kids. Really. It can be whatever you want it to be.

Ours is mostly crafty, imaginative activities. Yours could be movement activities, art projects, books, games. Whatever strikes your fancy or the fancy of the kids you are creating it for.

Since this was to be for the girls, they had a hand in deciding what went into it. We pulled out a huge box of activities and crafty materials that we have been given, much of which came from our recently retired-from-teaching mom/mok (grandma). The rest was stuff I had stashed away for a rainy day. Yes, that means this box was FREE to create and fill!

We put the beautiful box to fill on the table, opened up our huge box of goodies, and the girls went to town. Here is all that went into it!

And here are some of the things that have been made using these materials.

What would you put into a kids’ craft box? Please share your ideas with me so that when it is time to refill this one, I have something new on hand. At Home.

    I would want to put way too much into a craft box and it would be ginormous! But, this was really cute and simple. I love it. I guess I would love to include seasonal stuff in a craft box for our house. Fun idea!

      It worked really well for a few years. The girls did eventually outgrow the box because they started wanting such specific things for their projects. But it was fabulous for a while.
