Tired of seeing your kids' little trinkets lying around the house? These Decorative Trinket Boxes are not only cute, but they will also help teach your kids the value of organization. Trinket boxes are great for keeping small things like hair accessories, jewelry, or coins all in one easy-to-find place. Plus, keepsake boxes make great budget-friendly craft ideas for kids. Look at your local dollar store for a small box and have the kids paint and embellish them however they would like. Your kids will love being able to think outside of the box to design these personalized trinket boxes.
