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!

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.

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.

 

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.

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.

Clothespin Turkey Magnets and Place Card HoldersI came across an adorable clothespin turkey craft on Pinterest and I had to make some. The nice thing about these is that every one can be unique.

Pasta Jar Snowman Luminaries - three snowmen

Pasta Jar Snowman LuminariesSnowman crafts are perfect for Christmas because you can leave them out through January! And in my area, the heavy snows don't usually happen until at least the first of the year anyway. I have a lot of old glass jars sitting around, as well as small LED votive candles. After searching for jar crafts, I came across these snowman luminaries.

 

Thanksgiving Counting Cups - cups and pieces

Thanksgiving Counting CupsWhen you teach, it is important to change materials frequently. This is especially true when working with younger children. That is why I like to create many different games and activities to go along with each theme. During November, I add paper Thanksgiving cups and counters to the math center. Students are able to practice their number recognition and counting skills.

They can be added to any flat surface, like cabinets and doors, to make your house more festive!
