Are you looking for ideas for shoebox crafts? Are you trying to get rid of all of those empty shoeboxes? Are you the type of person who likes to recycle shoeboxes rather than throw them away? If you answered yes to any of those questions then the perfect idea for you is to use your old shoeboxes to make some fun and exciting crafts. There are plenty of crafts ideas that are available that require the use of shoeboxes, for both kids and adults. But the best thing is that even if you don’t have any shoeboxes you can still make most of these crafts using regular cardboard boxes of various sizes, but keep in mind that some of the craft ideas will require a lid of some sort so shoeboxes are the ideal choice because they come with a lid.
Here are some shoebox craft ideas.
• Treasure Chest Craft
Paints, markers or crayons
Decorate the shoebox to look like a treasure chest using markers, paints, crayons, etc. Gold is a great color for a treasure chest
Take construction paper to form the top of the treasure chest, using the lid of the shoebox for the bottom of the lid.
Attach one side of the lid to the bottom portion of the shoebox to create a lid that moves up and down
Fill the treasure chest with the small treasures for your kids’ enjoyment.
