Back In The Box
Use your DIY skills to help solve that crafty dilemma of ‘Mum, where did I leave my favourite crayon?’

Keep your kids’ craft supplies neat and tidy with a strong, sturdy storage box. Large enough to fit in all their pencils, crayons, brushes and pens, internal dividers keep everything separate so they’re fast and easy to find. Then, when playtime is over, just make sure they put everything back in before sliding on the lid.
