IIRC shingles are three bundles to a square i.e. 10'x10'. You will be fine buying a bundle new, you won't be buying much if any extra, you might need 2 bundles depending on the starter course and how you finish the last row. 4'x6' is 24sf or 1/4 of a square.
i considered buying new but can i get a small quantity like that for < like $75? 10x10 is way more than i would need.

Go to Homies and buy a bundle. Probably less than $25.00 with tax. Should be some 3 tab which are still 3 to a sq I think, probably enough if it's a shed roof. If you have a ridge to cap you'll probably need another bundle. You can also look at rolled roofing.
that sounds very reasonable. im probably going to make a doghouse also, between that and the deck box it will give me enough roofing practice to build a new shed, which really is the goal anyway.

Instructions are on the wrapper. ;-)
You need to be careful about nails protruding thru sheathing if it's a toy box and short nails can be bruising on fingers.

If your planning a shed in near future I would reccomend matching shingles that are on the house now so you can use on the shed you build if you have leftovers. So often overlooked but if the shed and the house shingles match it looks so much nicer. IMHO. It doesn't have to be a perfect match but the closer the better.And yes you can buy them by the bundle at all big box stores !
