Students can keep all their school supplies in one place—with a handy organizer they can build and decorate themselves!

This activity is appropriate for:
kindergarten - 3rd grade / 5 - 8 years

You will need:


  1. Have students use markers, crayons and/or paint to decorate the outside of their shoe box and its lid.
  2. Help students glue colored paper around the yogurt container. Set aside to dry.
  3. Have students glue the small box and yogurt container to the shoe box lid.
  4. Then, have students glue the small box lid upside down to the shoe box lid (so that it forms a shallow storage tray). Set aside to dry.
  5. If students prefer, they can decorate their organizer with the flexible foam shapes or collage materials.
  6. Students can store glue in the small box, smaller items like erasers and pencil sharpeners in the small box lid, and crayons, markers or pencils in the yogurt container.
  7. Encourage students to store larger items inside the shoe box.
