We haven't done a project today and I'm not getting to the classroom either. So........for today's post I decided to write about what I just received in the mail from my new favorite online store.......Let's Explore. In addition to really great, unique products, their shipping is amazing. Every time I order from Amy she has shipped my order the SAME DAY!!! In two days, I have the goodies. Of all the places I order online, she has the fastest shipping and great customer service as well. Each order is accompanied by yummy organic lollipops!!
First, I purchased two Art Totes, one for each boy to get for Christmas. However, my oldest boy was coming downstairs when I was opening the box, so I didn't take a photo. I plan to fill these with some neat new art supplies and paint their names on the outside.
This photo doesn't show these very well, but they are the Leaf Rubbing Plates. These will be on the art shelf in my classroom probably starting in late September or early October. They are pretty thin plastic, so they should fit under papers pretty easily for coloring.
I also purchased the Letter and Number ice molds. I am hoping to make Alphabet Crayons with them spelling the name and age of each child in my classroom. I will give these as a birthday gift from me and the assistant teachers.
I bought the Nature Stencils too. I am planning to use these for pin-punching on the art shelf or science shelf as we study different things in the natural world. They didn't photograph well, however. And I bought a couple more sets of Crayon Rocks. I have a set for home and wanted some to have on hand to give as gifts. They are on sale right now too, which is a real bonus!!
Finally, I wanted to share a book I bought recently that I think I will use a lot for art projects this year. I love almost every activity in this book, and I think the kids will too.
