I am so excited for my 4th graders to be able to color and design their own pencil boxes this year!
I found these heavy duty, foldable pencil boxes on Really Good Stuff's website. I used zipper pouches last year, and they held up okay, but some zippers were breaking. I don't really like how messy the plastic pencil boxes can get, so I decided to try these.
I will encourage my students to decorate the sides with pictures that mean something to them and represent themselves in some way. It will be a great "Welcome Back to School" Art project, and I think they will LOVE being able to take these little boxes home with them at the end of the school year.
Here are some fun pictures of my decorated box... =)
