I picked up some of these easy DIY ideas form two great websites... http://www.tipjunkie.blogspot.com/ and http://www.todayscreativeblog.blogspot.com/ . We also have button found on the right margin titled "Tip Junkie" that if clicked, will link you to all kinds of creative websites and tips. This will change everyday so be sure to check it out!
All of these projects are great because your kids can do them with you! The one at the top is easily achieved with just some scrapbook paper and your printer. The clipboard below is just scrapbook paper decoupaged, and then the teacher's name is printed on it. Your kids can make their teacher a card by putting apple prints on paper using an apple cut in two and some paint!
