Pencil Boxes to Decorate...

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...  =)

Inside...lots of room for school supplies!  :)

    1. I can't wait to have them decorate their pencil boxes. I will have to post some pictures of how they turn out. :)


  2. Great idea! They might even be quieter than the plastic pencil boxes and zipper boxes. In our district--we supply our own--and every year it changes--sometimes it is a plastic box and sometimes it is a zipper box. Crazy!

    1. Wow, sorry I haven't replied for so long. My school year has just started to settle down some. I love the pencil boxes that I bought, and the kids enjoyed personalizing them. They are really quiet, clean, and sturdy. I will buy them again for next year! =)
