(This is actually a home question for a friend with two-year-old twins, but I figured this was where to find the experts!)

What do you like to keep large crayons in for young preschoolers? The original boxes just get destroyed, cups tip over, and I'm looking for new ideas.

What about the clear Rubbermaid tubs with the blue snap handles? They may stay shut if dropped? Worth a try!

Our librarian uses the plastic take containers from Chinese restaurants to store her crayons. Free is good!

There are also those plastic pencil boxes that snap closed. Tney aren't expensive, just a few dollars (they are only a dollar at the back to school sales,,but I'm not sure how much they are now.)

picnic organizer. They come in any style or material also. You can get any of the and some are easier to wash than others,

It is smallish and has a carrying handle. It will generally have three compartments down one side (for silverware) that you can put crayons, scissors, pencils in. The other side is made for napkins or paper plates and you can put the paper or whatever there.

I like the mesh one and actually bought several many years ago at the Dollar Tree for just $1.

I use old icing tubs. They work great for each child to have their own set of crayons. I also use them to hold bulletin board boarders.

Multi section caddy

You know those plastic shower caddies, that have a large section on one side, and two small sections on the other? That's what I use in my KG class. I keep markers in one section, pencils, in another, and crayons in the third. I like that they can pick the whole thing up easily and it can't be knocked over without some effort.
For little ones you might modify it to-paper in the large section, crayons in another section, and pencils or trash or something in the third.
