One of my son’s favorite characters are the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles! I turned ordinary green, $1 pencil boxes into Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Pencil boxes for him and his friends! This TMNT craft is so quick and easy! Grab a few pencil boxes at the store when you head out for school supplies. Check out our TMNT Sewer Slime or our TMNT Finger Puppets!

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Pencil Boxes Craft for Kids

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Pencil Boxes Cases Back To School TMNT Activity


I had a few minutes to stroll around Staples the other day while collecting school supplies for my son’s kindergarten teacher. He loves the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles! I found these cool green pencil cases for only $1! Of course, I had to hunt down four of them to make all of the turtles! I could never get away with just one! I also found a few at the dollar store.

Supplies Needed:

Green Pencil Boxes

Colored Craft Tape

Red, orange, blue, and purple for the TMNT’s masks.

Google Eyes and Black Sharpie



To Make Your Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Pencil Boxes

This is a 5 minute project! Have your kids help as much as they can or want to help! Let them make their Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle pencil box their own! If you only have one pencil box, you could do a stripe of each color and google eyes on each stripe!

How to make Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Pencil Boxes for Kids

Step 1: Wrap a piece of colored craft tape around a section of the box. I tried a couple variations. First I put the tape closer to the top and then I put tape closer to the bottom. We all decided we liked the tape at the bottom of the pencil box better. You can feel free to put the tape anywhere you or your kids want!

Step 2: Glue on google eyes. I used a regular Elmer’s School Glue but a glue gun might work better for long term use. Ours will stay on his desk at home.

Step 3: Use a black permanent marker to draw on a mouth. I always find this tricky, but I have gone with this simple drawn mouth a few times now. Practice a couple times on paper, and then go for it!

Step 4: Fill with pencils!

These Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Pencil Boxes look awesome! My son was thrilled with the end result and quickly filled them all with pencils, crayons, colored, pencils, and markers. I guess we will have to make more for his friends.

These TMNT pencil boxes would make an easy and inexpensive party activity to take home with new pencils!

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Boxes for the Win!
