I had an empty Cottonelle wipes tub that I knew I could find a use for. So I ran it through the dishwasher and left it alone for a while, trying to think of a use for it. It didn’t take me long to come up with the idea of using it as a crayon container.
I cut out the rubbery stuff in the center close to the edges. Then I found some letter stickers in my sticker stash and spelled out “crayons” on the top. It is the perfect size for a box or two of crayons and it makes it a lot easier for little ones to get them out and put them away by themselves. I always thought that the boxes that crayons come in are a little tedious. You have to pack them in like sardines, and you can’t really expect little kids to have the patience to put them away. Sure, you could also use a cheap plastic tupperware container, but it doesn’t have the cool easy-access flip-top lid (Angie has fun playing with that too) and it’s not as pretty. As you can see, Angie added some decorations to her new crayon box!
