For those of you buying back to school supplies– have you seen the amazing deals out there?
One idea (and it’s a inexpensive one) is to buy an extra box or two of a few of the supplies on your student’s list and assemble a “To-Go” Kit for your child’s teacher.
This is something that could come in handy if a student forgets their supplies, if the classroom runs out of stuff during the school year, if the teacher wants to take the kids outside for a lesson… whatever!
Supplies for the Tray: A cardboard drink tray, 4 paper cups (you’ll use these in the next mini-project), chalkboard paint, painter’s tape, chalk ink.
Section off a rectangle on the tray with painter’s tape and paint it with chalboard paint. It might take a few coats.
When dry, gently remove the tape.
You can write on that area with chalk ink. Set the tray aside.
Supplies for the Cups: 4 Paper Cups, a glue stick and labels. You can find these blank labels here:
Click this link for the Back To School Banner (you can use the “blank” one for labels)
Click actions, then view all sizes (scroll down until you see “view all sizes”), then select “original,” save to your computer and print.
You can handwrite or print out the names of the supplies.
And glue them on.
Embellish with whatever you have like ribbon and these apple clips from the dollar bin at Miichael’s.
Then put it all togther…
Happy Back To School!
