Gettin' Crafty! Part 2

I'm linking up with Tara at 4th Grade Frolics again for Monday Made It!
Reality has set in people.  One week from today I will be back at school.  Wow...the summer has flown.  I've got to make the most of these last few days!  Here are a few things I've wrapped up since last Monday's link up. {Please ignore the picture quality....I took these last night...}
I saw these last week and HAD to make them!  I got enough for a small group set and I plan to place them in my writing area to help my kiddos brainstorm for ideas.  Too cute!  This idea came from Mrs. Plum.  See her original post here.

Here are my labeled drawers!  I found these 3-drawer organizers on clearance at Target about 6 weeks ago.  The adorable monthly labels are from Tammy! As you can things are starting to pile up!  I need to get all of this out of my house and into my classroom!

Woohoo! I finally got around to making seat crates for my guided reading/math table!  I found the perfect denim material on clearance at Wal-Mart.  I threaded polka dot ribbon through the crates to bring in my class colors.  The hubs helped with these so they are super sturdy! I think they are going to be a big hit this year.  :)

Yep.  I made the lego soap.  I saw this on Pinterest a few days ago and knew that I had to make it for the sink in my classroom.  What kid would not want to wash his/her hands with this?  It was a super quick and easy project that my 3 year old was thrilled to help out with.  The hardest part was being patient enough to slowly rip the label off the soap without leaving the sticky residue!

I've got a few more things on my list before school starts back.  Have you seen this yet?  I am totally this type of person.  :)


  1. I love the bin you chose for them -- the polka dots are super cute! The Lego soap is on my list, too... all yellow bricks though -- gotta keep it Oz!

  2. The ribbon around the crates is a great idea!!! Such a simple perfect way to link classroom themes and colours together, and easy to change each year - just love it...

  5. I am notorious for adding things to lists for the pure satisfaction of crossing them off!

  9. Great ideas! I LOVE the lego soap. Got to make it for my class. Thanks for sharing.

  10. Everything you made this week turned out awesome! I especially love how organized you are looking to be! Those bins are amazing.. I really really really need to get on that! I have so much stuff half organized.. and of course that means it turns into a disaster by the end of the year. Love your crate seats too! Too cute! Ummm and could that ecard explain me anymore??? I ALWAYS do that! :)

    Reaching for the TOP!
