These colorful totes are such a nice project for a group of kids to complete together or for a rainy day craft at home. As an alternative to buying to toes, you could be on the lookout for used totes at a flea market or garage sale, wash them up if possible, then paint them as the instructions mention for your very own unique creation. A fun project, thanks for sharing!

thanks, like it
