The AWESOME folks over at Michaels asked myself and some other bloggers to create a Back To School project as a Kick -off to their Back To School Sweepstakes. (This Sweepstakes is great! Teachers can enter by creating their own project and sharing it on Instagram. You could win a gift card from Michaels to use in their store. It will run from 7/21/13 thru 8/3/13. See below if you are interested in entering!!) Of course, when they asked, I said "YES!!". So they sent me a gift card to shop for supplies and I got crafty right away!! I was sooooo excited to do this that I came up with more than one idea to share with you!!
The two things I created are:
1) My Summer Treasures - A cute craft for the first week of school. It is also a take home activity and a writing activity.
2) Classroom Chalkboard Table Caddy - This product is a classroom organization tool and doubles as an End Of The Year gift for the kiddos. I love it because it is perfect for my new rectangle tables and you can write directly on the caddy! Great way to keep those "trouble" sight words RIGHT in front of a student!
Well, that is it for my freebies but not for the Sweepstakes! I highly recommend you enter and try to win! You don't even have to create anything new. If you have something that you have used time and time again, take a pic and upload it to Instagram using the tag: #Create2Educate AND #sweepstakes Don't forget to "Like" @kindergartenboomboom and @Michaels while you are there! The sweepstake opens today so go get started!!
Here are the details of the sweepstakes from Michaels:
Michaels knows that creative teachers work hard all year to captivate their students, to making “boring” things come to life, and to create environments that fuel education.
Join us in keeping the inspiration going as we kick off the 2013/2014 school year with the #Create2Educate sweepstakes!
Create your own Back-to-School project—anything from classroom décor and organization, to a learning activity for your students. Then, enter the Michaels sweepstakes by uploading a photo of your creation to Instagram using #Create2Educate.
Each day we’ll feature our favorite Instagram photos on the Michael’s #Create2Educate Pinterest board, and we’ll randomly pick one lucky teacher daily to win a $50 Michael’s Gift Card.
Create as many Back-to-School projects as you’d like and upload photos of them to Instagram for more chances to win.
#Create2Educate opens for entries on July 21st and closes on August 3rd. Head to Michael’s and get inspired today.
Don’t’ forget that teachers get 15% off of their purchase all year long at Michaels!
I would love to hear what you think about my projects so leave me a comment below!
