Manic and Monday Made It, plus yay for dads!

 Hey yall!!! I am so much better than my last post, because guess what???

My dad is a genius. A computer genius, to be exact!

He was able to recover my corrupted file!!! Soooo....look what's finally in my shops!

This is a monster, with 120 pages! Yikes! It includes:

*Attendance Board-header, student owls, and transportation options

*Name Plates-there are 4 different color options

*Calendar Buddies-includes days of the week, months of the year, and 'today is,' 'tomorrow is,' and 'yesterday was' header cards

*Number Cards- numbers 1-31 are included

*'Owl'phabet Cards-there are 2 different size options

*Table Numbers-there are six different table tags

*Classroom Jobs-includes 20 classroom jobs

This set has a theme of owls and polka dots, accented in teal, orange, lime green, and brown.

Just because I am sooo happy about my daddy being ah-mazing, I will offer it free to the first person that can guess what he did for a living (he's retired now). Leave me a comment below :)

Now, onto my Manic Monday freebie! It is a little companion to accompany this cute set.

My niece and I got super crafty yesterday! I know that everyone has seen the melted crayon artwork around, so we thought we would give it a whirl!

We bought all our supplies:
1. white canvas (16 x 20 was 2 for $9.99 at Michaels)
2. Crayons (we used 2 boxes of 64)
3. Hot glue gun
4. Heat gun
5. Paint and paintbrushes

First, we tore all the paper off the crayons. Tip: soak the crayons in water first!

Then we broke them in half, and hot glued them to the canvas. We propped the canvas against the wall, and covered the floor with newspaper to prevent splatter.

We turned on the heat gun and the wax melted away! It was pretty instantaneous, which I was pleased about. I'm sure you could use a hairdryer as well, although it would take a lot longer!

Voila! All the crayons melted beautifully!

This was pretty cool already, but we took it one step further. We turned the canvas upside down, and painted some colorful flowers! I love how they turned out!

And this is mine! I used all the colors that will be in my theme for next year.

Cute, right? This will look perfect in my future classroom!

One last thing before I go :) (cheers to you if you made it this far!)
