Shadow boxes are a great way to store and display memories that would not fit flat in a book. A shadow box is very easy to make if you have the tools. One way to make a shadow box is by constructing a box from wood. Because not all of us happen to have a wood shop in our garage, there are less sophisticated ways of making shadow boxes. To make a spring shadow box that is easy enough for a child to construct, simply use an empty shoebox. Paint or cover the shoe box’s exterior. Place leaves, flowers, drawings, and anything else that you (or your child) have collected or made this spring. If you would like your shadow box to hang somewhere, make sure that when you add in your items that you secure them to the bottom of the box so that they do not slide around. Then cover your shoebox shadow box with clear plastic wrap or cellophane.
