Feeling Crafty?

Last week I sewed 30 new chair backs for our classroom.  This involved material, a cutting mat, a sewing machine and thread. Yes, I love DIY projects and enjoy doing something crafty now and then.

The OC Blog Button
One of my favorite places to find DIY projects is Charity Preston's blog called The Organized Classroom Blog.   I also subscribe to Charity Preston's You Tube channel.  

Check out this video on making colored glue dots:

Classroom DIYRecently I came across another great blog for DIY Projects.  It is called Classroom DIY.   I wasn't surprised to see that Charity Preston is a contributor to this blog among many others.  

Here are some of my favorite posts that inspire me to create things for our  classroom.

#1 - Create Digital Frames

#2 DIY Crate Seats

If you love DIY projects like me and want to get some great ideas, I highly recommend checking out the Classroom DIY blog and adding this site to your Google Reader if you use one.
