Creating a Useful Box
Before starting any craft activity you will need to protect your work surface. A large vinyl table covering.Choose a neutral coloured vinyl fabric, something not too busy a pattern that will not look out of place where ever you use it.
Wipe down childrens aprons or tabbards are also a good idea along with a good easywipe vinyl apron for any adults involved - it's amazing how messy paint and glue can be! Once the fun is over wipe the surface down, hang out to dry, or wipe dry with paper towel.
