I am crazy excited to be linking up with Tara at 4th Grade Frolics again this week. Her blog (and Monday Made It) was really my inspiration to start my own blog, so I can't thank her and her amazing blogging talents enough!
My Monday Made Its this week are (hopefully) going to be fun AND functional!
Monday Made It #1: Box Top Holder
|My failed Box Top bucket...|
|Yay for uniformly shaped items!|
Monday Made It #2: Scrabble Word Work bins
A looooong time ago, I saw this on the lovely Tara's blog.

Now, folks, you should know that I love Scrabble. I also love Words With Friends and any game that is word related. (Mainly because I can beat my husband in those games, but that's neither here nor there.)
So when I thought about having kids use Scrabble as a Word Work activity, I was super excited. I began
looking scouring the Earth for Scrabble letter tiles. Not as easy to find as one might think. Apparently, Scrabble tiles are big in the crafting world...because they are wooden and adorable many people use them in many different types of crafts. So I put my mom, the garage sale queen, on it! She found me three full Scrabble games at very reasonable prices! Thanks, Mom!
Here they are:
I sorted the tiles from each game (to make sure there weren't any missing) and then I put the tiles in these cute and colorful pencil boxes from Michael's. I think they were $1. I downloaded the adorable *editable* labels from Elizabeth at Fun in 4B! You can get them here...they're FREE! And super easy to edit! I used the Cheri font from Fontalicious.
Ok, everyone! Now I HAVE to go to work! :-) New school year, here we come! Before you have to go to work, make sure that you head over to 4th Grade Frolics, add your Made Its and check out everyone else's!
Have a great day everyone! Thanks for reading!
