I purchased these white photo boxes at Joann's craft store. They were $3.99. Their 40% and 50% off coupons are very easy to get making this an inexpensive craft. If you chose to use Sharpie markers, Joann's also carries those and a coupon will come in handy. Other markers may work too, however I really like the vibrant colors and longevity of the Sharpies.
I let my kid's use their imagination to decorate the boxes. Each box was different and special. I just kept an eye on them since they were using Sharpies!
Once the box is finished you can fill it with photos, handmade gifts, treats or a special note. Then he can add other special things to the box over the years.
