    Use dollar store soap boxes to organize card games...genius! Also good to give card games in. Just wrap the card game in tissue wrap so you can't see game through the plastic closable soap dish first. Then put a Christmas sticker on top the plastic. Use a different sticker or color of soap dish for each game that you give. Would fit into some Christmas stockings.

    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

    Use dollar store soap boxes to organize card games. Might be better than the index card holders for your flashcards?

Beaded Vase. Measure and cut elastic thread to a length that will encircle glass, plus several inches to tie off. Thread first group of beads on elastic thread, test for fit and tie off. Now you can pre-cut a number of pieces of thread and continue threading until vase is completely covered. I want one in pink!
