Manic Monday at Classroom Freebies and Made It Monday at 4th Grade Frolics

Howdy all!  I haven't blogged in forever!  I am still waiting for news on next year.  But I have started some projects that I can use next year should I ever find out I have a job.  Today my freebie is crayon jar labels.  I was inspired by Pinterest, of course, to make a jar for each basic crayon color.  Then, should a student need a crayon in a specific color, they can go to that particular jar and grab that color.   Easy peasy right?  Below is a somewhat blurry photo of my jars.  They are half pint canning jars.  I spray painted the lids with a flat black, grabbed some ribbon, attached my freebie label, and voila!  Feel free to use the labels in any way you like!

I am also linking up with Made It Monday over at 4th Grade Frolics. This is one of the first projects, my crayon jars, that I have actually finished in the hopes of having a job next year. I am trying to complete projects that can work in multiple grade levels because I have no idea where I will end up. Next on my long list of to dos is creating a teacher binder, completing my teacher toolbox, and painting all of my bookshelves flat black. Wish me luck and go link up with your back to school projects. Oh and by the way, I went to my local Walmart today. School supplies are beginning to appear where summer stuff used to be! Is summer almost over?

Crayon Jar Labels



  1. Cute! I've had a 'Need a Crayon' box for several years, but it is so distracting listening to kids over there digging around for the right color. This would solve that!
