This month’s box project is all about color! Add a colorful touch to your child’s bedroom by making this nightlight from a Green Kid Crafts box. I couldn’t believe how easy this was with such a cool final result. So once you’re finished with your Green Kid Crafts kit activities this month, save your box  and make it into something useful!


  • Empty Green Kid Crafts box
  • Scissors
  • Tissue paper
  • Glue
  • Flashlight


Cut a rectangle out of the bottom of your empty Green Kid Crafts box. Leave a frame of cardboard around the edges of the rectangle.

Cut tissue paper into narrow strips the length of the box. We cut ours to be about 2″ wide.

Add glue around the edges of the rectangle where you left the frame of cardboard.

Lay the tissue paper lengthwise across the box covering the cutout end to end. Rotate the colors of tissue or create a pattern with the colors.

Trim excess tissue paper from the edges of the box.

Set the nightlight on a tabletop and place a flashlight inside. Be sure the flashlight isn’t up again the tissue or sides of the box. See the light shine through the tissue creating a colorful nightlight?
