I created these boxes for my girls for our Florida vacation. They loved having these on the trip. In each box is a sketch/note pad for drawing what they saw and journaling about each each day, along with a canvas bag that they used to collect shells that they found on the beach. They were also able to use the box itself to stash other momentos they collected on trip.
