I don't know about you, but I look forward to 4th Grade Frolics' Made It Monday linky party each week! I love to see all the fun projects everyone is up to over the summer! This week I worked on two projects; a charging station for my four tablets and making my gross green trashcans look pretty! :)
Last year I got four tablets through donations from parents and from Donors Choose. They were great to have in the classroom but a pain to keep charged because I could not fit all four charing blocks on one power strip. So, coming up with a better solution was on my list of summer projects. Since the big power blocks were such a problem I started by going on Amazon to find a solution. Check out this great USB wall charger. It's great because I won't need any charging blocks!
So with that problem solved, I just needed to come up with a cute container for the tablets! I decided to paint the toolbox that my daughter made me in her "shop" class this year.
You can see the awesome new USB charring block in the picture below! I can't wait to bring this to school and get it set up for my kiddos!!
I don't know about you but the trash cans in my classroom are OLD, DIRTY and UGLY! I actually got this idea from my buddy, Kimberley, who was tired of her yucky trash cans too!
After a good cleaning, I spray painted them!! If you can't tell, I love zebra print so I painted the cans black and added two rows of my fav zebra duct tape around the rim of the trash cans! Wham!! Instant trashcan beautification!!!
