Project-Saver Box

Project-Saver Box lesson plan

Are you a clutter bug? Always losing stuff? You’ll be a keepsake kid after you decorate this handy storage container—it’s a pizza box!

  • 1.

    Pizza boxes are strong AND big enough to handle lots of three-dimensional school projects. Here’s one way to make your own unique storage box.

  • 2.

    With Crayola® Scissors, cut a construction paper label for the top of a clean, extra-large pizza box. Draw the label with Crayola Rainbow Twistables. Write the year, your name, and other information. Attach the label to the box with Crayola School Glue.

  • 3.

    Decorate your Project-Saver Box with the fun, ever-changing Rainbow Twistables hues. Make bright borders, stripes, dots, or any designs you like on the top and sides! Make your box look as exciting as the projects you’ll put inside.


  • Students decorate a box to store their completed art, homework, and craft projects.
  • Students extend their awareness of storage solutions and organizing skills to aid their home and school life.


  • Ask your families to share organizing ideas with your class. Invite a professional organizer to explore tools of the trade. Identify storage challenges in your school and as a class come up with solutions.
  • Visit a museum, library, or newspaper to see their behind-the-scenes storage facilities. Call a delivery service, mover, or another company that keeps track of enormous amounts of items. Discover how they function successfully.
