We are heading to Cedar Point this weekend and traveling with 4 kiddos can sometimes be a complete joy, others not so much! So I like to prepare and one thing I do is make things to keep them busy! My girls love to color and make great mater pieces so crayons are a must have in the car.
But your typical crayon box gets demolished in one trip, so I like to find alternatives to keeping our crayons together and not on my van floor! Plus finding new ways to reuse things we would typically throw in the trash, makes us extra happy to recycle!
This is what you will need:
- Clean Parmesan Cheese Container- We reused the old Kraftl Grated Parmesan Cheese Shaker Canister, removed the outside plastic and washed it out! You can add stickers or decorate with permanent makers to personalize the container for each child.
- Box of Crayola Crayons-Go to the Dollar Store or order from Amazon and grab a box of new crayons
That’s about it! Pretty simple project clean and add crayons! Great item to take with us in the car, at a restaurant or just anytime you need a crayon!!
