At Cami’s beach rainbow party, I gave her this box. It was really quite simple to make using a wood burning tool, a box that you can pick up from your local craft store, watercolors and beeswax polish. I sketched out the design, burned it in, painted and after all was dry: polished. I filled it with a couple of handmade things: a onesie for Ellie and a doll house dolly.
This box has been played with a ton by both of the kids. Cami uses it to store her dollhouse dollies, but also to put together little “treasures” that she gives to Noah as a surprise. Noah’s brought this out more than once to give me a “surprise” like a seashell, bow and other little treasure. I’ve got this idea saved for Noah’s birthday next year. So easy and such a hit!
If you enjoy watercolors as much as we do, I updated on my inspiration/tutorial page different watercolor projects we’ve done together.
