Come Follow Me Altoid Container Idea

Come Follow Me 
Altoid Container Idea

"My Special Box" is a tiny box primary children fill each week with pictures and small tokens that represent the lesson topics learned. They can take these cute boxes home in December before they advance to the next class.

These boxes are decorated simply with decoupaged scrapbook paper, printed labels, and inked paper edges.  You could always allow the kids to decorate their own :).  I wrote the children's names on the bottom of each box with a permanent marker.

The tin box in the picture above contains every item you see in the picture below :).  This only takes up about 1/3 of the space in this tiny tin.  Room for more!

I was only in this calling for 2 weeks so will not be able to develop the idea much this time.  I was super excited to still represent the Armor of God, a family (paper doll chain holding hands), and so much more!  There are so many fun topics and pictures to use and the kids LOVE holding their own items each week.  I am not sure if you can tell but there is a tiny prayer rock in the bottom left corner.  I sent them home with a large prayer rock and made a small one for their box.   

These pictures were printed off of the FREE MEDIA LIBRARY located on  This site is amazing!  You can download and print hundreds of photos for your home and classroom use for free!  Many of the images will even enlarge rather big!  I found it was easiest to copy and save these images in a word document.  If you would like a copy of this word document please email me.  I would be happy to send it your way.   

I do not recommend sending these boxes home with the kids each week as you will probably not get them back. 

You can use items already in the box to teach many lessons throughout the year as there are a lot of repeated topics.  

Have fun!  If you think of something clever to put in, take a picture and I'll post it :)!
