I needed a cool container quick. So I found some fabric and the glue gun in the craft box.
Here is the ugly plastic container. I am starting to hate plastic really bad. I think there is nothing good about it.
I found this piece of fabric. Perfect size!
I glued it to the side.
Then I glued it to the inside.
I just keep gluing along the inside edges.
Inside is all done.
I took the extra fabric and glued it along the front.
Yay, I like it!
I wanted to hang it on the wall so I needed to cover up the bottom. I took a piece of denim and glued the sides down.
More gluing :0
There it is on the wall. I have to put everything on the walls, because my kids get into everything.

Ike gets into everything. I mean EVERYTHING! He got into the craft box and made a big mess of the craft sticks. I started thinking about what container to put these in. Hehe...this time I tricked him into picking his mess up and Sam helped.
I just grabbed a ball jar and put 3 slits in the lid. They love it!
Yay! They did it! Finally picked up their mess!
This activity amazed me. They must have played with it 5 or 6 times in the same day. Thanks to this jar I was able to get housework done.
It is great for Sam's coordination. It will also be great for Ike to learn to match colors, learn his colors and counting. I do need to be careful the boys don't put these in their mouths. They have been in the craft box for years and they came already painted.
