Crafting and creating is such a big part of the Back to School Frenzy. I so wish that I had more time in the school year to get crafty, but I barely have time to take a potty break! So, when I got an email from Michaels offering to help jumpstart my school year, I thought… let’s do this!
I knew that I wanted something different to hold my math stations this year. What I used last year definitely worked, but I wanted them to be a little more tucked away. Now, thanks to Michaels, I have my Math Stations rolling cart!
The beautiful thing about this project is it was so stinkin’ simple! I literally only had to purchase THREE things to get it done (and the cart was 50% off!!).
After putting the cart together, I put a strip of washi tape towards the top of each drawer, then hot-glued the numbers!
The drawers will house my math stations. They are large enough to hold the station materials, extra resources, and manipulatives… yay!
Next up, I needed to make a new sign for above my door. Each year my campus has a different theme, and we decorate above our doors to match the theme. This year we are all about Superheroes… after racking my brain for my superhero name/door decor I decided to ask #mytribe for suggestions and ideas. Abby came up with Sour Power and I love it!
This project was super simple also! At Michaels I picked up burlap pennants, yellow punch-out letters, washi tape, and scrapbook paper!
I layered each pennant with a strip of washi tape and a yellow letter. Then, I made the capes out of scrapbook paper… put it together and DONE!
