Little pots with carry handles anyone?

    I've been looking for some little plastic pots that have a carry handle so I can put writing stuff in them so the children can take them where ever they want to do some writing. I have been to my local 'cheap' shops but they don't have any. I did find a shop that had some but they were massive!
    Any ideas where I could get some from?
    Thank you.

  2. I've been given some pots with handles from a local pub. Some are probably too big - small bucket size but there were occasional smaller ones, like mug size. It might be worth you asking at sandwich shops, pubs & other food places - they get mayonnaise etc delivered in things like that.
    Other than that I have no idea sorry...love the idea though :)
  3. We have what I call trugs- plastic carry all's (sold I think for cleaning stuff at home) that have a large section on one side, a handle in the middle and two sections on the other side - good for mini clipboards paper books pens number lines etc. THese were from the pound shop but actually my kids prefefr to be allowed to stock up one of a selection of bags (hand bags, ruck sacks etc) to take with tehm.
  4. HI I bought two tool boxes with tools in from Tescos. I took out the tools and filled them with notebooks, pens etc. They cost £5 each but the boys love them.

    Thanks for the replies. I love the carry cases on the Baker Ross website! I like them because they have the lid so I think I might get a couple of them. I haven't tried Tesco (ours is only a little one) so will pop tomorrow to the Tesco Extra in the next town as they sound ideal. Fingers crossed they have some!

    I found some pots in B&M. They are little tool boxes and were reduced to 99p. So if you have a B&M store near you I recommend you pop down!
