First, encourage your child to begin assembling the toolbox by gluing the white rectangle (which will look like the handle) to the top of the toolbox. If you prefer, you can cut out the rectangle outline on the toolbox instead.

Next, guide your child to create the front of the toolbox by gluing the “Happy Father’s Day” rectangle onto the long skinny red rectangle.

Now, glue the red rectangle onto the base of the toolbox. Remember to only put glue along the sides and bottom of the rectangle, leaving the top part open for easy tool access.
