Zoom Pictures

This is a box I got at a local Metal Shop. They always have pallets and shipping boxes. I cut off the second layer of the two layer cake box and attached the lid with some hinges I had around.

I needed this for my gas cans which I wanted to keep outside the garage in the shade.

But the real work was putting a warning sign on it. My son Elijah helped me trace the pattern and then waited while I cut it out. He did a great job painting as you can see! The next day he wan’t too interested in posing for a picture. He wanted to keep digging and playing with earth worms.

Well, as long as he was allowed to bring his friend into the picture, he came along willingly.

I am considering putting a lock on the box for safety.

That is a really good idea, and “teachable moment”! -now, is it okay to get a crate and lable it, “naughty children”? Eli there looks like he is a good helper, and could stay out to help label it!
