Monday Made It~ Seat Crate Party!

It's another Monday and time to link up with Tara for Monday Made It! I am super excited to share my this week's project with you. It was sooooo much fun to make. I am very thankful to a fellow friend and blogger who decided we needed to get together and have a Seat Crate Make It Party! We invited some people from our school and a few others, but only four of us made it to the party. One was a newbie to our school, and we invited her, but since she doesn't know what grade she will be teaching yet... she just helped out! So here are a few pics of the action.

I think it was the 1st time I have used a heavy duty stapler!

They were not hard to make but it took us a few hours, because we did more talking than working!

Here are our finished products.

This is my 2nd grade friend Sarah's. We spray painted a sea green color and added a ribbon. 

This is my 1st grade friend Heather's. She spray painted black then took a variety of round cups, dipped them in paint and put the circles on.

And here is my finished product at my small group table. I LOVE THEM! I intend on using the crate to store small group materials, so whatever I need the students to have I will place in the crates!

I want to thank Heather for planning our party and getting most of the supplies needed and supplies the tools! We had a great time and can't wait to see them in use in all of our classes. 

Well it's time to check out other projects! I am excited to get into my classroom and put up all my projects, can't wait to share completed room pics with everyone!

Quick question: Spiral Bound notebook or the other kind of notebook for math journals and science journals, etc. I have used both in the past and had trouble with both, the spiral ones they uncurl and the others the glue comes undone and they begin to fall apart, just curious what you all use. I also get them cut in half so we don't waste that much.

Don't forget EAST TN blogger meetup this Wednesday, August 1st @ 1:00 @ Jack's City Grill in Johnson City, TN! Can't wait to see you there.

What a great idea to do the crates as a party! I made some a few weeks ago and just had a non-teacher friend over to help. Mine are alongone side of my whole group meeting area, I am already filling them up! I need to get some cute labels for them so I know what I put where, lol!

I LOVE the idea of getting school pals together to work on a project! What fun!!! Your seats look GREAT!

How about them apples?


I use the composition notebooks for math journals. But make sure they have sewn covers, and not glued. That way they don't fall apart as easily!

Your seats turned out great!


they are so cute!


I've used both...but the spirals are given to us by our school...I've put a dab of hot glue on the end of the coil and that helped to keep it from unraveling.
