Make it Monday: Teacher Edition

I have been wanting to play along with Make it Monday for a while now, but I have been so busy that I haven't had a chance to do anything on the computer!  But, I have been able to create a few things for my NEW classroom and I can't wait to share them with you!

I have found a few cute teaching blogs the past few weeks and one of them does a Make It Monday link so I thought I would join!  4th Grade Frolics is a cute little blog that I found a few weeks ago when I decided to apply for a 4th grade position!!  She has many cute and fun ideas and I am excited to finally play along with Make it Monday!!

So, here is my first project for my new classroom!! 

First, My theme is zebra, lime green, bright blue, and hot pink:)

I got these containers at the container store on clearance!  So, what did I do?  Buy all of them.  They have been in my room for a year and I did nothing with them.  When I cleaned my room out at the end of the year I decided that I was going to do something with them this year! 

So, here ya go:)

First, I painted the lids:

 So the lids were a little tricky to paint.  I didn't realize that plastic was so hard to paint haha:)  And the blue color is so distorted on the lid in the above picture!
 Here is the end results.  I just wrapped the top of the containers with zebra ribbon!
 I put a bunch of erasers in one of the containers and then I used one for glue, and three of them to separate crayons.  I am a little crazy like that:)
 And here are two pictures of the end results!!
Thanks for stopping by:)
