If you need a fun party favor to give out at your next children's birthday, these homemade party boxes use upcycled plastic animals as added decorative lids. These would be great substitutions for disposable loot bags and kids can keep all their favorite little treasures inside.
To make these homemade party boxes begin by collecting any of your children's unused plastic animal toys. If you don't have any handy, you could alway pick some up at your local dollar store. Glue each animal down onto a blank craft box lid. Spray or hand paint the lid and the animal a bright neon color. Once the paint has dried you can put the lid back onto the box and fill it with a variety of little trinkets. Kids can use the animal as the handle for the lid when they open and close the box.
