Make your own compliment boxes by Anouk van der El from Make History

We are going on vacation … and often this means travelling … spending time on the road, airplane or bus … to make sure our kids dont get bores my friend Anouk van der El has created 7 wonderful craft projects to keep our kids busy the coming weeks … Entertainment time: 60 minutes +… today we start with number.

What you will need:
* colored sheets of paper,
* glue
*  coloring markers
