A Bug’s Box

Each Sunday morning several pre-schoolers gather at my church for Children’s Church.  I have the great honor to play and make crafts with them!  We have such fun!  This week the literature said make a box and it had a pattern and blah, blah, blah.  Of course, that was not good enough for our kids so I found this pyramid shaped box pattern and we decorated and made banks to save money.  Didn’t think about the nice sharp point a pyramid makes until a 3 year old was shaking his box exuberantly!

Here is my rendition of the box.  I have painted beetles on it in tribute to the scarabs all around the plains of Giza where those real pyramids are.
