Last year for Christmas I wanted the Princess to make Jeff something really, really special but it had to be with stuff I had. I had craft sticks lots and lots of Craft Sticks.
I did a Google Search for Craft Stick Projects and came up with a Craft Stick Trinket Box (Family Fun). This project was really easy, the Princess helped me build it. A little Elmer’s Glue and Craft Sticks and it took about and hour to do. I let the Princess paint it with brown acrylic paint. I then took the Princess’s hand and painted it with pink acrylic paint and Booga’s foot and painted it with baby blue acrylic paint and pressed it on the top of the box. Jillian told me that I had to use glitter paint to seal it, so I then painted everything with Glitter Paint. The box sits on the bookcase next to Jeff’s side of the bed, he loves it!
TIPS: If you need to make this in a hurry put it together with hot glue and let the kids paint it. The hour building time includes drying time for the glue.

I will say it is a cute little project and I see many, many more of these in my future.
