Bronze Post Medal for All Time! 131 Posts

Bronze Craft Medal for All Time! 91 Crafts
 
Hey all! I recently heard about this site on Facebook and decided to join. I am a teacher at heart, but I am not doing that right now. I have had some health issues due to my weight and I am trying to remedy that. I am currently working at a local thrift shop, mostly renting out moving trucks! Talk about something completely different from teaching! I enjoy the people I work with, but I miss being in the classroom. I miss creating games, crafts, and lessons. That is why this site is perfect for me! I can add all of the crafts that I used with my Pre-k students on here! At least while I am getting healthier, I will be able to be constructive!

The Many Ways to Utilize Paper

The Many Ways to Utilize PaperThe best way to not waste paper is to avoid using it, but that is nearly impossible. Many people don't have digital access and still have to rely on paper copies of everything. Instead, we need to recycle it and find ways to utilize every inch of paper so nothing is wasted.

 

Craft drawers being used to organize a pantry.

Organize Food Pantry With Craft DrawersSeveral years ago, I purchased a craft cart with tons of drawers, for additional storage. The cart itself started being too flimsy to use, but the drawers were in perfect condition. I decided I'd try to use them to organize my pantry, and I love the outcome! I labeled each drawer using my label maker and tried to sporadically place the different colors on the shelves.

 

Two rolls of Christmas lights on paper tubes.

The Best Way to Store Christmas Tree LightsIn Christmas movies where trees are decorated, I often see the lights in a jumbled mess. As a child it was the same way; untangling those lights took forever! A few years ago, I had an epiphany. Why not use paper towel rolls to store the strands? I have used this method for at least four years.

 

colorful clothespin beetle

Clothespin Click BeetleThis beetle is fun for kids to make after reading Eric Carle's, The Very Clumsy Click Beetle". They will have a blast getting the beetle back onto its "feet".

 

Blessings Jar for the New Year - plastic jar filled with colorful paper slips

Blessings Jar for the New YearMost people make resolutions for the New Year. Even if we don't always follow through, it still feels good to make these goals. We have a sense of purpose and a chance at a fresh start. Another way to keep up the New Year's momentum and stay positive is to create a Blessings Jar.

 

A beef patty made inside a ziploc bag.

Make Beef Patties Inside Ziploc BagOne of my absolute favorite meals is hamburgers. I always mix in at least 1-2 seasonings, the most flavorful for me being ranch and onion powders. I dread the mixing and shaping part though because bits of the ground beef sticks to my hands, as I roll and flatten.

Pot of Gold Fridge Decor  - pots and coins on fridge

Pot of Gold Fridge DecorI thoroughly enjoy decorating for every holiday, but I hardly have money for expensive items. And this year, my employer is having me decorate the break room as well! I decided to decorate the fridge door and to incorporate every associate into the St. Patrick's Day theme. Making pots of gold was the easiest choice and turned out absolutely adorable.

 

Meatball Subs and happy face fries on plate

Meatball SubsThese meatball subs were a family favorite when I was growing up. And on birthdays, we still choose a meal for other family members to prepare. Most of the time my choice is meatball subs. For under $10, you can feed 2-3 people. They are easy to make and taste delicious!

 

Q-Tip Painted Fall Trees - tree with falling leaves

Q-Tip Painted Fall TreesThe most beautiful part of fall is when the leaves begin to change colors. I think it is breathtaking! It is difficult to capture the beauty in a painting, but it's definitely fun to try. And in the classroom, a unique way to paint these fall trees is to use Q-Tips instead of brushes. It's a fun and easy activity for any age!

 

Rorschach Snowflakes - different design

Rorschach SnowflakesGrowing up, you hear that every snowflake is unique. Whether this is true or not, this craft is perfect for demonstrating that. No matter how many times you do this craft, each flake looks different from the previous one. Kids of all ages have fun creating these symmetric patterns.

 

Repurpose Old Food and Storage Lids for Paint Palettes  - colored soda and water bottle caps on a squarish container lid as another option

Repurpose Old Food and Storage Lids for Paint PalettesIn lieu of buying paint palettes, why not make your own? I have used paper plates before, but all the paint tends to run together eventually. With just a few supplies, you can have a palette that keeps the paint separated and is perfect for any age to use.

 

Clothespin Reindeer  - reindeer ornaments hanging on the wall

Clothespin ReindeerEvery Christmas I love to make new decorations and ornaments. And this year, I found two reindeer crafts that I had to try. They are easy to make and can be used as regular decor that you set out or ornaments for the tree. I like the traditional look, but you could also mix it up with different paint and accessory colors!
