You all, I had sooooo much fun designing school stuff and participating in Michael's #create2educate Sweepstakes! Check out these super simple projects!
Project #1: Student Lap Desk
First up, grab yourselves a few basic supplies from your local Michaels craft store.
Acrylic Paint / Foam Brush / Lap Desk / Stickers
The stickers I chose are adorable! Tons of cute sayings!
Do a little painting...
And, voila! You now have a super cute student lap desk. My initial thought behind this desk was that it would be a perfect reward for students to earn! What kiddo wouldn't work towards getting to work ANYWHERE in the classroom on this darling little desk?! My kiddo, for one, couldn't wait to test it out! Mobile learning at it's finest!
Project #2: Easy-Peasy Clothespin Clips
My desk can be a *little* bit on the cluttered side if I'm not careful to stay on top of organization. So, when I saw these simple chalkboard clothespins at Michaels, I knew exactly what to do with them.
Here's what you need:
Chalkboard Clothespins / Sharpie Acrylic Marker
It's really like a two-for-one deal here because you can use the clips double-sided for even more labels! Here's what I wrote on mine...
Project #3: Teacher Inspiration Notebook
I love the blank pages of a new journal. That, in itself, is inspirational to me, as it means those blank pages are just waiting to be filled!
What You'll Need from Michaels:
Notebook / Washi tape
Start by taping the Washi tape to the inside cover of the notebook...
Wrap it all the way around so that it lays across both the front and back cover. Press it down and tape inside the opposite cover.
You could use any combo of Washi tape that you want, but I preferred the simple look and kept the same pattern.
On the inside, use the Washi tape to fancify your pages...
Simple. Fun. Affordable.
