Tack Box Treasure Boxes


Tack Box Treasure Boxes

Before I started this project with the kids, I pulled up some images of custom tack trunks and cut some out of catalogs and made a little poster of what a real tack trunk looked like and all the color combination and design options. It helps to inspire some and to explain to those kids who don’t really know what a tack trunk is.This is pretty self-explanatory. A good project that takes approximately 45 minutes and costs about 2.00 or 3.00 dollars per child depending on the size of the boxes you buy.
