Ana made simple plans for this crayon holder, just 2 cuts and lots of holes – you probably already have some 1×3 scraps lying around for this build.
Of course you could personalize this crayon holder with the child’s name too.
In place of the bottom board I simply glued the crayon holder onto a 3/4″ piece of plywood.
My plywood is cut at 9 1/2″ x 15″ in order to accommodate a 9″ x 12″ pad of paper.
You could make this portable lap tray any size to fit your paper pad and I guarantee kids will love taking their portable lap tray in the car everywhere they go.
How to build a crayon holder:
1. Follow Ana’s plans and cut your lumber.
7. Use a 3/8″ drill bit – this fits crayons, pencils and skinny markers:
11. Sand smooth.
12. Print out lettering.
I used Verdana font at 130 point.
Fill with crayons and you’re ready to wrap up and give.
Thanks Ana for working with me on this Handmade Holiday series, I now have a full arsenal of hand built gifts to give thanks to your free plans.
