Make a memory box

My family has a bunch of Summer Fun! goals this year, and I want both my children to be able to remember this summer for years to come. We kicked off our summer with a fun and easy craft. Memory Boxes!

~Paper mache box (I paid $2.99 each at my local craft store)
~Temper paint in different colors
~Stickers, feathers, gems, and anything else you'd like to decorate your boxes.

We had to wait for the paint to dry overnight before we could decorate them. My kids loved this project. Now every time we do something from our list (like go see a movie) we can put our little treasures (like a movie stub) in the box.

At the end of the summer I will put together a little photo album of all our fun to go into their memory boxes.
