Coffee can or plastic margarine container with lids, construction paper, glue or tape, miscellaneous craft supplies.
Wrap a piece of construction paper around the container and fasten with glue or tape. You can now color, paint, or glue any scrap craft items you may have onto the can. Don’t forget to decorate the lid too.
“Before using cans, check for any sharp edges.” “Try keeping the theme of what is to go inside the can in mind when decorating. If the can is to hold crayons why not draw or cut crayon shapes around it. This makes looking for craft supplies easier, since you can readily identify the can.”
“Encourage the kids to return all their craft items to the proper containers to help with clean-up and to keep things organized for the next craft session.”
