Repurpose your crate


  • scissors
  • hot glue
  • paint


  1. Looking for something to do with the crate everything came in? The lid can be cut off and turned into dividers for the interior of the box. With a pair of scissors and some hot glue, you can create six sections.
  2. Tempera paint will warp the cardboard, so make sure to glue down the inside dividers to prevent them from spreading apart.
  3. Let your child paint the interior of each section with a color of the rainbow, and it turns into a color-coded organizer for art supplies! Make sure to let the box dry fully before putting art supplies inside.
