Nearly everyone will love a good box.Even kids know what to put in them, and are excited to make one.It can be hard for the kids to give what they've made away, so I promise my students that they can make one to keep the next week.
Originally made by kids at east coast summer camps and exchanged as keepsakes among friends, friendship boxes have been made in a variety of styles and some years back Smithsonian Magazine had shown a collection of these historic boxes.
We have made them for years in the wood shop at Clear Spring School in a variety of designs but this one is a winner because it can be easily assembled (not without some bent nails, of course) and the simple pivot hinge keeps a class of kids about as far away from broken off screws and misapplied hinges as humanly possible...
