If you read this little blog, then y'all know I love a good craft or 12! My entire classroom has been crafted with these little hands, all the way down to my calendar. So I was so excited to participate in Michael's back to school crafting event called, #Create2Educate. I already had projects in mind that I needed in my room this year, so finding the items needed to make them happen were easy in Michaels. They have everything!
I really wanted another space this year for my kids to sit together and make words. The minute I saw a long graduation frame on sale, after graduation time I knew it would be perfect for what I needed. I added a piece of metal that was already the perfect size and decorated the frame with buttons, and voila... we have another fun area for my kids to practice literacy!
I also have my Focus Wall area and knew I needed a nicer I Can board. I wanted something to match my decor, so by printing some paper that matched my other decor and decorating letters, and a frame from Michaels, I was able to create the perfect place to write my standards.
Last was a very easy project! Check out my cute new crayon caddy! I just used colored vinyl, normally used on a Cricut or Silhouette and covered the containers to match the crayons I wanted to sort.
I also purchased some fun items for Back to School gifts that I'll be sharing soon. So don't forget to check back.
