Monday Made It: Back to School and Updated Product

The first month of school is so crazy busy right? It's a wonder we even have time to sleep! I wanted to link up with my buddy Tara for her fun linky, Monday Made It.
I hope you can use some of these ideas!
This was part of my display for my Welcome Back to School table, I made a pencil cake.
You will need: foam circles, large file rubber bands, pencils, paper confetti or tissue paper, cake plate.
 First get your round foam circles and glue together (I used three and placed on top of each other-Dollar Tree). Then just line up the pencils all the way around, inserting pencils inside the rubber bands. My cake took about 80 pencils. Super easy and cute!

 Glue foam circles together and insert pencils all the way around the cake. I used a piece of paper because I didn't want to see the green foam in between the pencils, but they fit so snug that you won't see the paper anyway.
I think I'll break this out again for Open House, it makes a cute centerpiece and it only takes a few minutes!

I made these cute soaps for my children's teachers for the first day of school that I found on Pinterest.
You could use these for Teacher Appreciation, Just Because, Christmas, etc.
Would you like a copy of these labels? Click here! :)
I also updated one of my popular products for back to school. I added a few quotes and black backgrounds as well. Download again if you've already purchased this product for the updated file. These Inspirational Posters have been created every year in my classroom for the last 17 years! It's one of my favorite activities to make my students feel this is "their" classroom. Plus, it's a great way to save money on premade posters! These are perfect for Open House! Once your students make them for your class, others will put in their requests for posters orders!

  2. I LOVE that you include black and white versions of each of these quotes, so I don't have to use up all my precious colored ink.

  3. love these posters for the classroom!


  5. We're working on something similar right now with our textbook - this would be perfect!
