A Little Back-to-School Goodie

     Once again I find myself working on cute, little, totally unnecessary things instead of tackling something more important.  Our first day of school is a week from today, so I realize that I need to get to work on the essentials, but for tonight my inability to prioritize led to a cute little project that I thought I would share.
     If your school is anything like mine, backpack tags are all the rage.  The kids come in with so many baubles attached to their bags that they actually jingle.  You know what they say, "If you can't fight 'em, join 'em!"  So, I made some kindergarten backpack tags for my incoming kids to decorate their new backpacks with.  I'm just going to cut them out, laminate them, punch a whole in the top and add a binder ring.  (You could also add yarn to make them into necklaces instead.)  If you'd like a set, click below the picture.  Now I promise I'll move on to more productive projects. Really. I will...

  4. I made these for my kindergarten parents...I got them hard laminated at Office Depot and hot glued a clothespin on it and then put a strip of magnetic tape on the back of the clothespin.
    I had all of their papers needed for our meeting clipped with them. Then they got to take them home to have a clip to have their students work on the fridge. They loved them. 2024 sounds a long way away!!!!

  8. Hi Donna~
    I love your ideas and I'm new to K (again) after teaching 1st for a long time! I'd love to make those tags for this upcoming 2014-2015 school year. Are you still making them? Would love to get a set for Class of 2027.
    Thank you for the ideas! R :)
