Empty shoe box; paint and paintbrushes or paper and markers; glue; old photos; child-safe scissors
This is a fun activity and the outcome is a clever keepsake. Help your child to decorate an old shoe box. You can cover the shoe box with wrapping paper, paint it, or cover it with plain paper that can be decorated with stickers and markers. Once the base is finished, your child can cut out and glue on photos of themselves, their friends, and their family. Once the box has dried, your child will have a unique memory box to fill with small treasures and mementos.
