cut it down and screwed it to the inside corner
of their toolboxes. Adding just that one modification made them so happy.
Other possible additions include fold-down
legs, a hinged lid, compartments for the entire
box, etc. Get your child’s input and see if you can
find a way to implement his design ideas into the
project in some way. You might just wonder why
you didn’t think of it first.
I think I’ll be adding a pencil holder to my toolbox tomorrow!
