With Summer in full swing you might be taking a vacation or a road trip. If you have little ones those can be boring for them. Today I want to show you an idea you can create that will not only keep your little ones busy on the road, but also stretch your creative muscle!

Busy Box

To create a busy box all you need is an old chocolate box and Rita Barakat’s Magical Theater Book! Simply gesso the box and adhere the scene to the top. This will serve as a place for the play to happen.

I added Glitterific to the edges to make it special!

To create the pieces for the play, pick two or three paper dolls. Assemble them on paper straws.

I added a little glitter to each of the dolls.

Fill the box with different things that compliment the play set.

The box is ready for play! The cool thing is you can not only play with it, but store everything in it.

I would love to know where you are traveling this summer? What was your favorite vacation? What is a place you would like to visit?

Until next time ~ Happy Crafting!
