A friend of mine makes these adorable activity boxes for kids & I just had to share them with you! She sells them on e-bay and you can check them out at http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1&item=320217639098&ssPageName=STRK:MESE:IT&ih=011 . I bought some for my girls & I'm planning on giving the boxes to them for Valentine's Day. I've filled them with markers, paper and craft materials.They are too cute - you just have to check them out! Here's info on the boxes that she has posted:
ADORABLE WOODEN ART BOXES -- PERSONALIZED
This is a great gift idea as well as a great idea for your own children. kids LOVE these boxes!!!!
You are looking at a wooden art box that has a chalkboard on one side which is personalized with a child's name and a design of your choice, the other side is a white dry-erase marker board. The chalkboard side slides open for storage and also has a carrying handle making it perfect for travel. These are great to keep the kids occupied and they can fill them with whatever they want. Buy one for home and one for the car and even one to keep at the grandparents. I can write specific sayings with the child's name. Example: "Sarah's Travel Box"
Price includes personalization, dry-erase marker, eraser, and chalk. (NOTE: supplies won't be exactly as pictured.) The dimensions of the box are: 11.5"x2"x9.75"Designs to choose from are: butterfly (blue or pink), flower (pink or purple), ladybug, airplane, dinosaur, horse, castle (purple or pink), tutu, bug, cowboy/cowgirl boots (pink or brown), sports theme, train, or car. If you have a specific design in mind email me and I will let you know if I can do that. NOTE: color's won't be exactly as pictured because each of these are hand-painted and won't be exactly alike.
