My first 'Made It' today was a SUPER CUTE supply organizer I'd seen on Pinterest and various blogs. So today when I stopped by Harbor Freight I found this cute [and cheap, $9.99] organizer!
I used the paper I had from my reflection journal covers and printed off the individual labels. I found a blog online that had them for free! Thanks!! It was SO SIMPLE to create! Once I was finished with the labels I didn't like the 'yellow-ish' color of the organizer so I decided to cover it wish some yellow paper then use the left over ribbon around the edge. I think it turned out cute, and SO functional! I can't wait to get it in the classroom!
I can't wait to fill it with supplies!!
My second 'Made It' was more of a I finally finished it type of project. Tyler built me a peg board and framed it a couple years ago. I painted the frame to match one I have already in the classroom. Long story short... I had no purpose for it in the classroom [it is a bit big], so it's been in the side room since then. I'm so excited to finally use it! We are continuing our 'Bucket Filling' at school and I recently found the CUTEST buckets at Target [dollar deals]! I'm going to hang a bucket for each student and they'll be able to collect their 'drops' throughout the year on this board. I'm not sure where to put it in the classroom [due to the size] but I know I'll be able to find a perfect spot. Now all I need to create is a title. Something like 'We Are Bucket Fillers'... 'Mrs. Oas' Bucket Fillers'... still deciding!
I just LOVE the bright colors!!
And of course...
I had my side-kick,
