A Little Classroom Fun!
Friday afternoon was a crafting day that one of my friends put together...
Well, I had finished everything I was working on just before Christmas
(because they were all Christmas Gifts!)
So what to do???
Hmmm, I could sew something,
or I could do some stitching,
or I could come up with a fun creative project to do with my kiddos...
Nothing was really hitting what I wanted to do...
I wanted something Fun and New, something different.
Well, I came up with the answer while doing school with my three younger kids last week. They each needed a pencil, and let me tell 'ya there have to be close to a million and a half pencils floating around this house. We have a great little bucket but the problem with it is that it is filled with pencils and colored pencils and markers and crayons and scissors and a lego here and there, maybe a hair tie or two along with an assortment of whatever may have been tossed in.
You would think that it would be an easy task to locate a simple pencil to write with...
Well, think again!!!...
this has proven to be far from easy and has also proven to be quite frustrating, mostly for me as I impatiently (oops did I say that out loud?)
I really meant to say as I patiently wait for them!
So I decided to alleviate this frustrating problem once and for all
and to make it happy and cute at the same time...so check it out!!!
Buckets for my schoolroom
to keep everything in it's very own little place...what a novel idea!
