What I love about summers?!?! Other than not having to wake up at 5:30?
It's 12:30 and I've already made breakfast with my babes, taken them to chapel at their school, took them to the library (we didn't make it to story time - Luke had to nap!), and planted flowers in the pots in front. Sound like a successful day to me! Eventually I'll lost my steam, but for now I'm refreshed! :)
Tara over at 4th Grade Frolics began a "Made it Monday" series this week. We're all trying to convince her to make it a linky - I know that I will participate and this will keep me motivate to finish up all those (school and non-school) projects I have waiting on my summer list!
Here's the supply box I completed yesterday (I think I pinned this way back in November or something!)
My classroom is all bright color polka dots and stripes - so I decorated the labels to match!
If you want to make your own and use my labels, HERE they are! I just copied them onto 4 different colors of cardstock. I bought the toolbox from Home Depot. It's with the toolboxes/organizational stuff. They didn't have black like I wanted, but the grey works, too! It was only $16 - SO worth it! The rest of the decoration supplies I pretty much had on hand. I bought some new ribbon (I couldn't help myself!) to make it more matchy with my classroom.
I think it turned out pretty stinkin' cute and how practical is it?! I will never have to stuff these materials in my desk again!
Here is a little detail picture :)
On another note, I found this AWESOME fabric at Joann's on Sunday to go around the random desk that the computer for the Smart board sits on - it's so ugly and I definitely need to disguise it in some way! It matches really well with the striped fabric I already have in my room!
Ok, ya'll - one of my super awesome team mates is leaving Kinder for 4th grade *waaaaaa* but she's also leaving ME with a lot of wonderful goodies she won't need anymore *woot woot*
She gave me her chair pockets - I'm so excited because I have not ever had any... I just found other ways to store my kid's stuff. They've been used for several years and lack a little in aesthetics:
So what are you thinking would be the best way to cutesy them up a little? I haven't looked at stencils yet (they honestly frighten me a little bit). I could paint stripes or polka dots on them, or use ribbon like here with a little steam a seam:
I need your ideas, friends! Let me know what you think!
