As I mentioned we have a Birthday Party on the weekend for our friends little boys 3rd Birthday. I really wanted to make use of 1 of the left over Picnic Baskets which is in the below post. So when I was looking at them, I thought about this idea of up-cycling them into a "Kids Activity Box", I am really happy how it turned out.
Step 1. First I peeled off the picnic blanket that was on the inside flap then I replaced it with a piece of chalkboard adhesive.
Step 2. Cut up toilet rolls and a postage tube then glue on some Kraft Paper (color & print is up to you)
To make the main center holder, I just cut up some cardboard and hot glued them to form the holder. You will see the box already has the two bits of cardboard which you can create the side flaps of the holder.
Step 3. Work out your positions of your tube holders then hot glue them into place. You can also glue on little labels to them like I have.
Step 4. Paint the sides of the box in your desired colour, then you can add either paper or adhesive (contact paper) to the front and back of the box.
Step 5. Print out the free label to stick on the front and back of the box.
With the other side of the box i have added a few extra items for him to use.
I am sure the kids will get alot of use out of it.
Let the Creating begin I say!!!
