Monday Made It

I'm linking up again with 4th Grade Frolics Monday Made it linky party. I get inspired every week to add to my summer to-do list!

During the past week I crafted a couple things floating around on Pinterest. First, I decided I needed one of the Teacher's Toolboxes. I picked mine up at Home Depot. I thought the gray would go just fine with my "Wild" labels.

My classroom theme for the year is "Wild About Learning," (it's our school-wide theme) so I created set of labels to go on the drawers and used clear shipping tape to apply them. My finished box looks like this:

If you'd like a copy of the labels you can download them here.

Next up was the Pringles can ruler holder. The ones I've seen online have been decorated with scrapbook paper, but I made mine with duck tape. 

My last project was pencil cans -- I've decided to try these to cut down on students taking instructional time to sharpen pencils. Again I used recyclables, this time a couple of soup cans. Like the ruler holder, I used my trusty duck tape and printed labels.

You are welcome to have these labels also -- Enjoy!
