Idea box

A Boxful of Fun!

Anitha Bennett

The Xmas break is here once again with its cold days and nights. Finding things to do in parallel with festivities is necessary. Why not ideate an Art and Crafts Box, to add some fun to the magic of Xmas?

An Art and Craft box houses all kind of knickknacks to which, when you add imagination and experimentation, can be an absorbing experience. It’s not as easy as it sounds. You need to collect stuff that goes into it for at least a week before the holidays begin. Start with putting odds and ends that you find around the house and outdoors into it.

You could collect:
 Cardboard boxes (at least one box to dump all your collectibles)
 Ice-cream sticks
 Buttons of all colours
 Bottles of all shapes
 Scraps of coloured gift wrap and cloth
 Paper plates and cups
 Different types of rocks
 Shells
 Candle stubs
 Colourful beads

In addition, it’s advisable to purchase a few things to add to your box such as:
 A glue stick
 Fevicol
 Cello tape
 Stickers
 Glitter, sketch pens, paints, and other decoratives, keep adding parafernalia to your box. Store it in a safe place and keep filling it as and when you come across some knickknack that has some ‘craft potential’. So even when summer holidays comes around you can take down your box, take out the glue and decoratives and start creating things right away.
