Mother's Day and Giveaway reminder!

This is the third year in a row I've had most of my students, so I had to come up with something different this year for Mother's Day...two years ago we made picture frames, last year we made flower pots and planted daisies, and this year we made (are still making...it kind of snuck up on me this year!) little trinket boxes.

Today the kids cut or tore colorful tissue paper and glued them to their heart-shaped boxes ($0.99 each at my local craft store). I took them home today and Mod Podged them to seal and make them shiny...Tomorrow, the kids will pick out letters to spell M-O-M (or M-A-M-I or G-R-A-N-N-Y, depending on their own special person's name) from my collection of small foam letter stickers to decorate the top. They will also decorate a bag to 'wrap' it in. And voila, Happy Mother's Day! I think they'll be super cute when they're done.

Figured I'd take a photo tonight, since I will most likely (as is typical) forget to take photos at school tomorrow.
Heart-shaped boxes and tops waiting for Mod Podge to dry. (You can see the bar code stickers on some of them because those are the bottoms and it didn't matter if they showed through.) I'm glad I didn't have the kids help with the Mod Podge...I hadn't used it in years, and had forgotten about the fumes! Good thing I didn't have more to do, or I'd have passed out in my guest room doing them tonight!

And here's a reminder to enter my giveaway! If you tell me about the document camera and/or projector you use in your classroom, you can enter to win a $10 TPT gift certificate! Click here to enter...there are four days left.

I'm so glad it's almost Friday...it's been One Of Those Weeks, if you know what I mean...
