Kids will love storing their stuff in this chalk box craft. Covering this box with wet/dry sandpaper means the chalk will wash right off, so kids can decorate it again and again.

What You'll Need:

  • Corrugated box, approximately 7-1/4 x 6-1/2 inches
  • Four sheets black sandpaper, 320 grit
  • 16 colored jumbo craft sticks

Tools:

  • Craft knife
  • Pencil
  • Scissors
  • Craft glue

How to make the chalk box craft:

Step 1: Use a craft knife to cut off the top flaps of the box; discard.

Step 2: Trace each side of the box onto the back of the sandpaper; cut out. Glue a piece to each side of the box. Let dry.

Step 3: Glue four craft sticks around the edges of each side of the box. Let dry.

Store your chalk in this box, and draw right on the sides when it's time to play. Just wash clean with a damp paper towel when you're done.

An empty detergent box is transformed into a lovely decoupaged storage box with the craft in the next section. Keep reading to learn more.
