Free Printable Halloween Notes

Halloween is almost here!  For fun I decided to put a Halloween themed note and a Halloween treat in my kids' lunchboxes today.  I found two great links with free printable Halloween notes great for stashing in a lunchbox.  Print them for your kids and add a little personal note to bring a smile to your child's face.

Storing Crayons

If you lose the box your crayons orginally came in, as most of us do, here are some great ways to store them and keep them from breaking:
  • Use an old, plastic baby wipe box and let the kids decorate it with stickers
  • For smaller collections try a soap container (great for traveling by the way)
  • Small baskets found at a dollar store
When you do have broken crayons, here is a great craft to make for your kids or for their teachers!
What ideas do you have about storing crayons and what do you do with your broken ones?
