This time I had an actual box with a handle. This would be cute. Must find more.
Of course I had to decorate it to personalise it for the child. Adds a nice touch if you theme it. I tried out the suitcase look.
On the inside I added felt to dampen down the racket of carrying bricks into church.
Then I picked blocks from the pick and mix in the store. I picked five bricks of each colour and of the two main shapes. 2x2 and 2x4.
Then added some wheels and widows for interest. Also a set to build a car.
After this I then took an idea I found on Pinterest. I made a little booklet with patterns in for the child to follow but then left blank pages for the child to make their own patterns.
I made an intro page.
Then the instruction to make more. One could argue planning where the words go could help.
I am excited at making this box and plan to make one for my storms. I will see how they like it.
