Pizza Boxes

I was trying to think of something for my kiddos to do at Open House night that would give them a since of belonging in the class.  I usually do the typical Scavenger Hunt, family picture type stuff, but really wanted something different this year.  I started thinking about storage space for all our crafty lessons.  In Science and Social Studies we create a lot of great stuff.  We also take notes and observe using Journals.  I have had trouble storing all of these "tools" together.  This year I decided to use Pizza boxes to store our experiments, projects, and journals that we are working on.  They turned out super cute!

First I spray painted the outside of the boxes black:



Then I folded all of them up.  I found these great foam space stickers from Michaels.  Then on Open House Night (Meet The Teacher Night) I let the kiddos pick 4-6 big stickers and 2-3 small stickers to put around the outside of their box.  (While they decorated I was able to talk to parents!!)




You can see through my example but the rest of the boxes are completely covered.  (I just was running out of paint and didn't want to get more for only 1 box.)

The kids had a lot of fun with this.

Do you have any other activities you do at Open House?  I would love to hear them!
