pdq@iyk: a prize box

Today I was putting away a huge pile of christmas-birthday-why-haven’t-i-put-this-away-yet stuff in my craft closet. At the top of my pile was a leftover prize from the Gingerbread Party. Lydia already had one, I didn’t want to throw it away, but I didn’t want to add another 10 cent toy to our already overflowing playroom. But what was I going to do with one little prize?

Then I remembered I had stored a few other leftover birthday-goody-bag prizes in a box of balloons and streamers. So, I grabbed an extra plastic container and created a PRIZE BOX!

Now I have some tattoos, a tiny deck of cards, some slinkies, kaleidoscopes and more to use when I need them! I can give them as rewards, or present it as a fun gift when a friend comes to play or just throw in my purse when I need to surprise crying Asa at a restaurant!

Is that a good idea or what?!!
