Treasure Box

This is one of those activities that keeps the kids busy, and has the added benefit of organizing tiny toys. To make your own treasure box, you will need a small fold up box from the craft store (this one cost just 30 cents), some stickers, and an empty egg carton. 

Have your child decorate the outside of the box with stickers. You could also use markers or paints, if you’re feeling particularly ambitious. 
Cut an empty egg carton in half, and it is the perfect fit inside! Have your child place all their little “treasures” inside the box. Storage solution for 30 cents!!

    Love the egg carton organizer inside! I just posted a treasure box too! Great minds must think alike 🙂

    Perfect for my youngest son’s rock collection. Yeah. Maybe no more rocks under my feet.

  3. Hi Mama King, I just checked out your treasure box and it is soooo cute and girly! I love it, and I bet Emily would too! Thanks for telling me about it.

    One Pink Fish, I never thought to use it for a rock collection, but that is brilliant! Rocks under the feet are not good. I feel your pain. 🙂

  4. Super cute. My little girl would love it and it would give us a place to put all those Polly Pockets things. Thanks

  6. Ivy & Onna — somehow we missed out on Polly Pocket, but we do have some Littlest Pet Shop stuff. It's tiny toys like those that can take over the house, if you're not careful!

  7. What a cute idea and a useful one,too!
