The Creative Teacher Giveaway! 1 for Me & 1 for You

Teachers can be a crafty bunch and this blog hop is a great way to find some great crafts for your classroom... you could even win a few of these crafts for yourself!
I have always used pencil buckets for sharpened and unsharpened pencils in my classroom.  I figured this summer I would spruce them up by using vinyl lettering and adding some cute ribbon.  These are what I used before... they were always falling over and the pencils were always spilling out.  So I picked up some of these tin pails from Wal-Mart... but you can get them at so many different craft stores!
I used a cricut to cut out the letters and the pencils and added some cute matching ribbon.  

 I also made another bucket for "missing pieces".  This was for those pesky dice, game cards, center cards, and other small pieces that students find.  They just place them in this little bucket and once a week I make sure to get them put back where they belong!
You can pick up the versions of this craft pictured below!  I went with primary colors for the giveaway so that they can match almost any classroom! Just enter the rafflecopter for a chance to win!

  4. I haven't decided yet. It may be bright colors or Hope King's Patterns Galore decor. I have to inventory my stuff and see which better fits. :)

  5. I have some material that is black with neon dots around a table and above cabinets. I try to use that to match accent pieces, but usually it's a mix of things! :) These buckets are awesome! I love the spare parts one. I could really use that to round up all those little odds and ends that the kids don't quite get back to the right spot!

  25. I have a brand new theme this year... I found the cutest Boho moose and woodland animals at a teacher supply store! The moose makes me smile every time I look at it. I made sure to put him on the bulletin board that faces the classroom door so I'd see him right away when I came into my room! :) JoAn Really needing a cricut now that I've seen what cute things you can do with it!!

  27. I love these. They certainly beat the red plastic Santa cups I've been using and the 'throw it on my desk' approach to 'found pieces.' Our theme is Fairy Tales and Nursery Rhymes.

  29. Our entire school has been packed up and we are moving into a new building. I am not exactly sure what my new classroom will look like, but I know that I will be using bright bold colors. These tins would be great to replace my current tins.....made from solo cups ;)
