Monday Made It

I know, I know, 2 posts on one day!!!! I am going to claim time difference, yep that's it!

This is my 2nd attempt to link up and because I have been so busy I am showing something I made last week.
So here goes, I first saw this on Stephanie's blog 3rd Grade Thoughts and I knew I had to make one too.  I spend so much time trying to work out who has forgotten to put their name on work and I think this is a great way to increase responsibility with students.  Plus, hers was sooo cute!

Now having said that I was going to make this, I am the least craftiest person I know.... I can laminate up a storm but create something with paint and glue? Major undertaking for me.  Well this was the fruits of my labours!

I decided to keep the pegs their natural colour but will probably end up painting them blue.


  1. Cute! I've been wanting to make one.

  4. That is such a clever idea!! Did you just glue the clothespins on? What did you use? I had to laugh at your comment on my Monday Made It. I REALLY am not artistic at all but I can paint and glue (and copy other ideas:). Although, I once took a class called "Teaching of Thinking" and the professor always said that we all have artistic ability and we just need to "seek" it....I say, "Yeah right!" haha! I will continue to push myself to seek it:)

    1. Thanks Holly, I too am still seeking, ha ha. I used a hot glue gun to glue on the letters, pegs and the wool around the edges.

  5. I think you will be taking 'orders' from your fellow teachers for more of these - love the colour combination...
