75 items to add to your craft box


What's the difference between an empty paper towel roll and a penguin?

Nothing, with a bit of imagination and craft box on hand.

Our family is big on craft. We do a lot of it. Our kids know that paper towel rolls and egg cartons don't go into the recycling bin, they go into the craft box.

We have a number of boxes and containers which house coloured paper, paint, textas, pencils, crayons, glitter glue, stickers, left over wrapping paper, cardboard rolls, craft items we buy at discount stores, day to day items which can be re-used rather than thrown away, and lots more. And we use it, often.

Anything can go into a craft box. I think the whole point of craft is to use your imagination and be inspired. Here is a list of items that can be added to a craft box, ready to be creative on a rainy day. You know your kids - you can decide what is within their reach and what needs supervision.
