How to Make a Storage Container

So today my little boy and I got creative again.  It was dark, thundering, and raining all day, so we stayed in and got crafty.  I made my own bag storage container and he made his own crayon storage container.
how to make a storage container

To make your very own plastic bag container you'll need the following:

A container such as this one works well.
Make sure it's empty and washed clean inside.

Remove the wrapper.

You can either use wrapping paper, scrapbook paper, or what ever pretty design paper you have. 
 Cut out a piece to place on the container. 
Make a label in your {word doc.}.  
Insert an oval shape to your word document, change the color of the line on the oval if you like;  insert a text box into the oval and type "bags".   
You can insert a little design from clip art.
Then when you are done, print it on sticker paper so it's easy to mount.
Once your label is printed, cut out your label and stick it to your design/print sheet.
You can use tape or glue to stick it unto the container.

Now you have a nice storage container for your plastic bags.

Next we have a
You will need a coffee can or some kind of carton can.

 In this case we used the carton can, no sharp edges.
My little boy used construction paper.
Let your little ones choose their own color;  measure the paper against the can, and cut it so you have the right amount to cover the can all around.

 Have your child (children) draw on the paper. 
When they are done with their art work, help them wrap the can, place the crayons inside and cover for storage. Voila!  

He now knows where his crayons are at all times and loves his new crayon box can:-)
