This shop is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group and Office Depot, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #inspirestudents http://my-disclosur.es/OBsstV
Can you feel it? Can you smell it? Fall is in the air! That means one thing…..school has started. At my house we so excited to go school shopping for the clothing that makes a statement and let’s everyone know just who we are, and that doesn’t just stop at the clothes. We love to buy the coolest school supplies that help my kids succeed. The other day, we went to Office Depot and found so many fun things that we can use at home to stay organized and or in the classroom. I found items that I had never seen before! So fun!
I have a niece, that is a teacher, who gets so excited going to office supply stores and getting her supplies for her 5th grade class. It’s not uncommon to see her post on Instagram with her new finds.
I have used Sharpies for years! I write all my girl’s after school activities, appointments, birthdays and school commitments on my calendar, to help us stay on top of things. You can use different Sharpie highlighters, for each child, to make it easy to give it a quick glimpse to see what child has activities on a certain day. I also use the permanent markers to label my girls school supplies with their names. There are so many kids that have the same supplies that this makes it so easy for the kiddos to look at the name and know it’s their binder.
I love teachers! I appreciate all the time and effort that they put into their job to help my child succeed! I have had the opportunity to see this close up because we have several teachers in our family. Cassie and Amber have both taught high school kids and I know how much they care for each and every child. I know there is a lot of you that love to show your appreciation, so I came up with a couple simple ideas that I did with things around my house and with my new finds!
You can take a mug from the Dollar store and make it personal with a design made with your Sharpie markers.After drawing your design, let sit for 48 hours, then place in the oven and turn the oven to 450 degrees and cook for 30 minutes. Turn off the oven and leave the mugs in the oven until the oven cools completely. They need to hand washed.
Decorate a can that can hold their pens, highlighters and pencils. Add a cute poem and in a small way you have given your child’s teacher a little love!
I LOVE, LOVE this new find! Expo neon window markers are so fun. Write a note on your child’s teachers car window or on the classroom window. How can you not help but smile ? I think this could be such a fun tool for teacher’s to get their students excited about a new concept that their teaching. They could use their desks or windows to draw on. It comes off so easily but the colors are so vibrant. My 11 year old wants to draw all over my car windows!
Make a personal shirt for your teacher, just using your Sharpie markers! We have done this for birthdays, family reunions and even days that we just needed a fun project. Click on T- shirt to get the instructions.
