Happy Summer!

Yes, I am happy, happy, happy! Summertime is my favorite time of the year! In just 4 short days my behind will be sitting in a chair by the ocean & my feet in the sand! I will most certainly be reading a good book and hopefully not one that is too educational!
 
To celebrate my reunion with summer, here is a quick project for you...

In my classroom. we use community pencils so that only adults are using the electric pencil sharpener. Every student starts with 3 or 4 pencils...when one breaks they put it in the "need to be sharpened" cup & take a new pencil as needed. When the unsharpened cup is full, I just put them all in a Ziplock bag and send it to our parent volunteers to sharpen & return.  Now we can't have a dull, plain pencil cup & I am too cheap to purchase the cute $17 cups in a certain teacher magazine with" really good" stuff in it. Here is my quick solution for that!

Start with my favorite recyclable item...a cake frosting can. Yummy!


 
Peel the label off & use clear packaging tape to attach the label to the cup.
 
Yep, its that simple!
 
 
Print the labels by clicking the picture below.

Awwwww such a colorful blog! What makes a reader love to visit a blog over and over again, first is the layout of the blog and last is the content of it. And you have both of those. Anyways, I like how creative you are. custom promotional stickers
