Storage is essential, even if you have a classroom or home with plenty of space. But why not upgrade your storage solutions beyond traditional plastic containers? We’re highlighting some of the top wood boxes that can double as storage for photos as well as arts and crafts supplies.

This wood box is unfinished, serving as a blank canvas for aspiring young artists to reimagine it as they see fit. You’ll also appreciate the secure metal snap closures and roomy main compartment.

The Walnut Hollow wood box features a sliding lid for easy access. We think this would be great to customize and use at a children’s party for receiving birthday or gift cards.

This simple wood box measures 6 inches by 4 inches by 2 inches, making it perfect for storing smaller items like jewelry.

This wood box features a sturdy metal clasp at the front to keep stored items secure. It’s made from pine wood and is safe for wood burning, carving and embellishing.

We like that this wood box would be perfect to display on your budding artist’s drawing table. Each drawer also has a built-in handle so artists can easily access supplies when they need them.
