This toy box in a drawer is packed full of fun and creative activities ever for both adults and older kids. We’ve got ideas for your galore! It’s great for a living room end table drawer or in our case a coffee table drawer.
Family and visitors will love going through it and playing with all the creative things. Maybe they’ll play a skilled game of marble jump, or decide to color on a mini adult coloring page. They might sculpt a little something or give themselves a spritz of “joyful” spray. They can freshen their breath and alkalize their mouth at the same time by choosing the tin labeled “Eat Me” and filled with Xylitol mints. Do a word search, play solitaire, even scratch their back! One thing is for sure… there will be a smile on their face when they peek inside this special drawer.

Toy Box in a Drawer Supplies
I used some things I already had on hand for my drawer and purchased others. I took plain things and added labels to them, Washi tape or bling. I even painted the marbles silver. Below are close up photos of some of the items in my drawer along with a list of what I used and purchased (or something similar.)

I decided to add a small photo album to the drawer later. The family drawing you see was done by our daughter Amy quite a few years back.
