I love linking up with Tara's Monday Made it because it makes me actually complete projects. Just a couple things this week . . . anyone want to guess what these are for?!
I've written before about having quiet dice. This is the other part of that -- containers to drop your dice into so they don't go flying off the table! I saved a few of the plastic containers that frozen meals came in, cleaned them out, and made them a little cuter by gluing some felt to the bottom. I saw the zebra print felt at Walmart and knew it would be useful for something!
I like my Crystal Lite raspberry lemonade and never want to throw away the containers. I'm going to have some friendly competition going on between my table groups this year so I'm making 4 different containers for our Box Tops for Education collections. We'll see which table can bring in the most during a set period of time. Here's my zebra print; my other animal print duck tape is at school, so I have to pick it up this week to finish.
This is something I made last winter. It sits on my desk at home to keep sticky notes at hand. I found some cute animal print notes in the Target dollar spot this week which will be perfect for the classroom.
All you need is an acrylic picture frame -- any size you want -- a little bit of scrapbook paper and the sticky notes. If you take off the back of the note pad it will stick to the frame. You can embellish as much as you want. Here is what I'm going to keep at the table where I do my small group instruction during math class:
By the way, these make great gifts, too!
