KID CRAFT: Backpack Holder

This is a fun, quick, and inexpensive project.  I picked up my crate at Michaels for $10 (well, I used a 40% coupon so $6 actually).  The paint I had on hand at home, but you can grab some while you’re at Michaels if you don’t have any.  And of course, you’ll need some kids to help you out!

SUPPLIES
> Wood Crate (purchase at a Craft store, Walmart, Amazon)
> Paint
> Pencil
> Paintbrush

HOW TO
Take your pencil and sketch the colored pencil design (yea, a triangle and a zig zag – that’s about it) 🙂  You could also make a crayon design.

Paint in the colors – the wood background words great for the sharpened part so I just left that along and painted the pencil and tip the color of the pencil.



Your crate is ready to hold backpacks, lunch boxes, or whatever you want.  OPTIONAL – I added felt rounds to the bottom of each corner since ours is on hard woods.
