Fun with scissors and glue
You probably have an empty shoe carton or box someplace at home. Today it's going to be transformed into a treasure chest, because we're going to decorate it by gluing on colored paper or paper napkins and painting the outside. Painted pebbles shine like gemstones, mystical patterns and magical symbols of wool scraps give it a touch of mystery.
Where does the chest come from and what does it hold inside? Again, imagination is called for to tell the tale of the treasure chest while tinkering. By the way, it's possible that the chest contains precious ornaments or jewelry: it's easy to color macaroni with felt-tip pens and string them to form a necklace, rings or tiaras.
