I got the idea for this board from the internet but added a little twist to it. Before putting up the board, it is best to prepare the crayon box, crayons, and title.
- I made a 3D crayon box by using small box lids ( empty tissue boxes should work too). Place the boxes in the shape of a crayon box then tape them together. Cover it with yellow butcher paper and draw the details to resemble a box of crayons. The top part is made of butcher paper and it is taped to the box. I also add a thin piece of paper along the bottom of the box which is stapled to the board.
- Make a crayon for each child and remember to use various vibrant colors. Type and print out the children’s names to paste to the crayons. Don’t forget to laminate them!
- Use the die cut machine to cut out the title. I used yellow for the title because it looks great against the black. Paste the words on black paper and laminate them. Now it is time to put the board together. The best color to use for the background is black. After putting up the black butcher paper, staple the top and bottom of the crayon box to one side of the board and the title on the other side. Scatter the children’s crayons around the title. Don’t forget the boarder!
