For every good Birthday Party you have to have a good party favor bag
Every year I try to come up with something a little different, something that the kids can use and personalize them.
This year for my sons buggy party I decided to make these fun Gardening tool Boxes. Each tool box included a gardening shovel, bag of dirt, a pot and a package of seeds.
For this I got all the kids involved helping me. Makai helped get me the wood to cut, then we would pass them over to Keegan who would sand all the edges and last we would hand them off to Chase where he would stand them up together and let me know how many more pieces we needed.
If you want to make your own here is what we did.
1x6 cut at 12" for the bottom
2 - 1x6 cut at 9" for the side. I then measured 2" down and cut on a 45'
2 - 1x4 cut at 12" for the sides
1 - 5/8" dowel cut to fit I believe this worked out to 13.5" long.
Once I had all the pieces it was just a little wood glue and an air nailer to put it all together.
Each one of the boxes were painted. I decided on Brown for the boys and Pink for the girls and then finished off with their names stenciled on the front.
The next day my kids got right to work putting their seeds into the pots and are waiting for them to grow.
