I love this way to recycle an altoid tin for a DIY travel crayon case. One of the best tips I ever got as new Mom was carry my own crayons in an empty Altoid case. So, 7 years later – I still carry it is my purse. It is actually the same tin! Simply take an empty Altoid (or other similar sized tin) and re-purpose it.
DIY Travel Crayon Case:
Crayons fit perfectly into the tin and it snaps shut. If the tins gets hot (mine never has and I leave it in the car year round) any “leakage” would be self contained. My son loves a variety of crayon colors and most restaurants limit him to the primary colors so I am sure to always include brown, purple and black in my tin :-) Enjoy this travel tip! It fits great in your travel bag too for those little ones.
