This crayon box is extremely easy to make with items you may already have around the home. I've found that baby wipe containers make wonderful crayon boxes. They are fairly durable and I have also noticed that they significantly limit crayon messes, especially when you have a child who enjoys turning over the container and dumping them out!
Step 1: What You'll Need
1. An empty, plastic baby wipes container with lid (hinged or removable)
2. A strong pair of kitchen scissors or sharp knife or razor blade
3. Strong scotch tape (clear packing tape lasts longest)
If your wipes container has name brand stickers on it, you might want to carefully remove them at this point. If they are not removable, you can always cover them with printed a label later.
Step 2: Cut opening into the lid
If you have an all plastic lid, like the one in my photos, you will need your kitchen scissors to carefully snip around the oval so that your child's hand can slip easily in and out of the box. Be sure not to leave any sharp or jagged edges as you cut. The plastic maybe be hard to cut, so be very careful, especially if you are using a razor blade or knife to carve out the opening.
