Cordelia has recently started accumulating her own treasures. I do have a box of keepsakes for her, but those are for things that I don't really want her rifling through at this point in time. So I decided she needed her own treasure box, a place where she can put her ever rotating collection of treasures.
We went to the local craft store and I had her pick out an unfinished box of her choosing. Next I had her choose 2 paint colors for the box. I had assumed she would choose pink and purple as she has become quite a girlie girl, so it was a fun surprise when she chose orange and teal.
I painted the exterior of the box orange and painted her name in teal. The interior of the box I painted withe the teal. Next we added her treasures which include drawings letters, stickers and some photos. Now she can add to and remove as her interests change along the way.
