Tippy Tuesday

Is anyone else super excited that it is makeover week on The Biggest Loser tonight?!?!  Only 50 more minutes until it starts.  I love the show, especially trainer Bob Harper!  So this post shall be a quick one.

Today's Tippy Tuesday tip comes from Deborah at Teach Preschool.  She created the DIY Yarn Machine for use in her preschool classroom and I think it would be great for primary classrooms too!  It is easy, requires few supplies, and is super cheap!  Instead of leaving yarn in a drawer to become all tangled up (am I the only one?), she uses empty, small cube shaped tissue boxes to keep her yarn neat.  One ball of yarn is placed in the box, a small hole is poked through the side, and the yarn is pulled through.  Then students, or the teacher, can pull the amount of yarn needed and cut it off, leaving a small amount left to pull through next time.  For those using more than one color at a time, she suggests taping the boxes together.  So smart!

And that is all for now.  Have a great week all!
