We’re big fans of a good ol’ fashion dollar store hack, and this one might be a new fave!
Basic primary colored sand toys easily transform into Blue’s friends Shovel and Pail with help from a permanent marker. These make great treat buckets — or even goody bags– at a party, as well as great play toys for the sandbox.
Here’s how to make them:
- Paint pens in black, yellow, and pink
- Red pails
- Yellow shovels
- Party favors of your choice (we chose popcorn)
- Draw faces on buckets and shovels using your paint pens and the image above as your guide.
- Let the paint dry.
- Fill buckets with party favors of your choice, and voila! Shovel and Pail treat buckets!
