Back to School Toolbox For Students and Dorm

The best project kit ever - you may even have to make one for yourself!


Last year I was asked to help my grandchild Chris with his project. It was then that I realized he did not have the proper tools at his fingertips. I was an artist and my son always had access to my ART tools like special adhesives, instruments and craft tools.  To this day he is great at hands on projects because of it.

While we were working on his project Chris had to gather items from places all over the house or didn't have things we needed at all! I thought, how can my grandson not have everything he needs to make a professional looking project...or even a great one?

I decided now that he was older it was time he had his own toolbox and one he could replenish and even keep for college if it lasts that long.

So, I went out and got an attractive toolbox.  Filled it with items I thought he would need to make nice presentations and have at his fingertips. All while doing any of his creative or educational projects.  

It was the biggest hit ever! Now when I visit and he is working on something I see him go right for the kit! School projects or other!


This is even a great toolkit accesory box for kids, teachers, even the Dorm Room.

So, If you want to make a toolkit for your kid,  what should you put in a Project Toolbox?

Here is a handy list.  
Make it age appropriate of course. 

You can always toss in a gift card so that they can buy anything they might also want in it! Why not add to it as they get older.
