DIY Crayon Organization

DIY Crayon Organizer

A little organization goes a long way.  Little Poppy Cat is always looking for a green crayon, his favorite color.  I found a fun solution browsing Pinterest, so I gave it a try.  The results were awesome.  Poppy Cat could not wait to organize all the crayons into the spots.  I labeled them with my P-touch label machine.  He doesn't read yet.  I hope it will motivate him to learn the color names while he sorts his crayons.

The original idea came from Aunt Peaches, be sure to check out her original post.  I modified the idea a little.  Here is what I did.  I used the box that trash bags come in along with the toilet paper rolls.  First I covered my box with card stock and added a printed a paper label from my computer.  Then I glued the bottoms of the toilet paper rolls to keep them stationary, since I have a little one.  Finally, I added labels with the name of each color with my P-touch label maker. 

It was a simple, fun project and it makes my day a little easier.
