Organizing Containers

You’ll need a storage box for each of your kids to keep all of their papers and art projects organized once school starts again. To make sure each child has a box that reflects his personality, have your kids make individualized boxes. Other organizational containers used to corral pencils and crayons can also be dressed up by the kids.  These five blogs will give you more ideas and instructions for special projects.

Gifts for Classmates

Crayon Fun
