Monthly Made-Its - October Edition

October is here, so here are my October Monday Made-It's. I didn't get as much completed this past month since I have been so busy with school, but here are the things I did get finished.

Classroom Made-It #1: Tidy Trash Tubs
I printed these labels from Rowdy in Room 300 and laminated them before hot gluing them to these plastic buckets. I found the buckets for $1.00 each at our local Family Dollar in the seasonal section. I made one for each table in my classroom for a total of 5. They are so functional and my kinders know to get them for their tables when we are doing a cutting activity. It keeps the mess around our room down to a minimum and it helps my kinders practice recycling the scrap paper since we have a new recycling program in our school.
Blogger wouldn't load the rotated version!

Classroom Made-It #2: Paint Chip Word Wall Words
I don't remember which blog I saw these on, but I know I saw them on Pinterest too. I got my paint chips from Walmart and got a few of each color to start with. Then I typed up our word wall words and cut them out in the shape of the word. I found the words showed up best on bright/dark colors. This is the word we are doing this week in Journeys. I didn't take a picture of the others...sorry!

Home Made-It #1: Fall Subway Art
This may not count as a Made-It since I just printed a free subway art sign from Pinterest and framed it, but I LOVE it. It looks great sitting on my mantel with my fall decor.
Blogger would not let me rotate this picture! Sorry!

I am linking up with Tara at 4th Grade Frolics for her October Monthly Made It linky party. Now I am off to see what other great things other bloggers have made this month.
