Step 2:

If you are putting together more than one box, label each with a pretty number sticker on the lid so that the kids can choose box number one, box number two, etc.

 

Step 3:

Lastly, write an idea on a piece of paper to get each project started, and place it in the box. "Make an exotic bird!" "Create a friendly monster named Eduardo!" Anything to get their imagination going.
