Today's Thrifty Thursday Tip is: Do It Yourself Classroom Decor
I love me some adorable Carson-Delossa kits as much as the next gal. But, I also have a mortgage to pay and can’t be spending money all willy-nilly.
Granted, time is money. If you don’t have the time then you might want to spend the money. But, if you do have the time then I’m here to tell you it takes surprisingly little talent to make cute things on your own.
This is especially handy if you are into classroom themes and are struggling to find items to complete your desired look.
Use the Overhead:
Find some clip art that you like. Make a transparency of it (using a printer, copier or just tracing it with a Sharpie onto a transparent sheet). Project it onto paper at a size that fits your needs.
The benefits to creating your own decorative items include:
- custom to match your room theme or decor
- exact size you want
- great project for classroom aides, parent volunteers or even the kids
I recommend looking through coloring books or googling "___ coloring page" (insert what you are looking for).
