Throw out those torn cardboard boxes & replace with Dollar Store travel soap boxes. For all the card games !
Using dollar store soap boxes to organize card games, so smart! those cardboard boxes they come in never hold up.
Got interested in soap boxes many years ago when I was a Kindergarten teacher. If you're a teacher, you know that the actual box that crayons come in lasts about 2 weeks in a classroom. Buckets are nice, but for small group work when everyone might need the same color for something, then the amount and/or sharing becomes a problem. So I came up with this idea way back then, so that each kiddo could grab a soap box of crayons for small groups. They take up very little space (even with 12 of them in a classroom), so it really worked well. (16 crayons...and more will fit if you like.) As a Mommy, you also know that crayons can be an essential part of waiting rooms, grocery stores, or the BMV. :) I've made a Crayon Roll-Up to suit those needs for my own kiddo, but if I had 4 kids I'm not sure that would be time or cost-effective. So maybe multiple soap boxes would work well for that. So what I've discovered is that soap boxes are COOL! Cheap and very, very effective at corraling those little things. Our #1 use for a travel soap box at home is for playing cards: You know how the box never stays together for very long? (Kind-of like the crayons?) Especially for games like Skip Bo, with tons of cards and a box that only the original production line can get them back into anyway. It doesn't hurt that it makes it real easy to take them along, too. We don't have a soap box for EVERY card game, but we do use them for the big packs like Skip Bo, or those where the box just isn't working. We also use them for small craft things, too...like jewelry-making beads for my kiddo: You could color coordinate for each of your kids, or for stay-home things and take-along things. Here are a few other uses I came up with for these little life savers: First Aid Stamps Stickers on the go Candies on the go (suckers, mints, etc.) Mom's Little Lifesavers: Nail Clippers, Chapstick, Dental Floss, Band-Aids, a sucker

Great idea for decorating a play room or game room! board games hanging on wall (no glass front in frame), baggie on back to hold pieces --- playroom
Game Board Storage Art. Awesome idea for game room, play room or kid's room. Hang board games in a frame with no glass on the wall. Attach a baggie on the back to hold pieces. Also a suggestion to screw eyelets in corners of board and hang with ribbon.
