After School Snack Painted Wooden Caddy

After School Snack Painted Wooden Caddy

Back to school crafts can seem ominous, especially when you're a kid. This After School Snack Painted Wooden Caddy will get little ones excited for the best part of the day - getting off the bus and having a snack. Start with a plan wooden caddy and add fun decorative touches to make the project stand out. Fill the the caddy with healthy snacks and thoughtful games so your kids stay full and busy.

Materials:

  • Americana Multi-Surface Acrylics
    • Red Barn
  • Unfinished small wooden crate
  • Rope
  • Paintbrush
  • Water container
  • Palette or plastic plate
  • Paper towels
  • Craft knife

 

Instructions:

  1. Paint the wooden crate with Red Barn. (I chose to leave the inside of the crate natural and let some of the wood imperfections show through the paint on the outside.)




     
  2. Measure and mark where you want the handles and drill two holes on each end of the crate.


     
  3. Cut your rope to the desired length, thread it through your pre-drilled holes and tie a knot so that your handles are secure.


     
  4. Load your After School Snack Caddy with all of your child’s favorite snacks!
