This Monday I'm super psyched to show off what I made. If you were able to muster enough energy to craft this week...link up at 4th Grade Frolics.
I totally bought into the Mermaid Theme. Luckily, I used blue and green last year...so most of my classroom stuff doesn't have to change too much.
Here goes-- this week is pic heavy...be warned!
|Now that My Girl's hair is growing out, headbands don't stay in anymore.|
So, I made them into hair clips! Very easy.
You can buy the alligator clips from any hobby store or beauty supply store.
|I went shopping! If you read my blog, you know I hate it! |
I prefer to go with a friend just so I'm not bored, but my shopping buddy was out of town for the 4th.
I sent her pics instead!
|No, I don't have a Cricut or a Silhouette, so I trace the letters from a printout and cut them by hand.|
I love how this turned out. They match the cute $2 pics from the dollar store!
You can't tell, but the pics are 3-D, not paper.
|At my daughter's previous school, they often sent home her water paintings that were cut into a shape for the season. This gave me an idea! When I saw this purple-turquoise-glittery painting... I knew it had to be a Mermaid! The pictures really don't do them justice, they are all pretty cute. The light blue one is really tiffany blue and she sparkles! The others are a lime green with green, orange and pink striped bikini tops. |
Finally, I stayed up WAY tooooo late finishing up my Monthly Newsletters. I send home Weekly Newsletters with my homework, but they look basically like this. Many of the teachers at my school have asked for a copy, so I made these. They are editable, so you can even e-mail them!
This Little Piggy is planning on hitting up Office Max's Back-to-School Sale this week!
