Made It Monday :) Alphabet Spoons

Everyone knows that I love to make literacy centers! I really love to make them out of things that are free or almost free! This year I saw this post on Pinterest. 

I looooove this idea! Not only for my 2 year old at home but for my sweet little ones at school too! I used my Cricut, some vinyl (my newest obsession) and WOW! How cute are these!!!!



These were super simple to make! First you need a clear spoon and a colored one. I  picked white so that my vinyl would show up better! I cut the letters with  one color vinyl for the upper case and a different color for the lower case!  I used my favorite Cricut Cartridge Mickey Font!!!!! And I cut the letters .75 in size...so just under an inch! 

I don't know about you but I am in LOOOOOOVVVE!

Happy Monday Friends!!!!  I hope you enjoying linking up as much as I am!!!!!

I spy....

A few months ago I talked about these great gumball container bowls from Party City. Click here to see this post!!! I also used the same containers to make the cute....I SPY bottles! 


These were simple and CHEAP to make! 
1. I looked around my classroom for items I already had.
2. Pick about 10-15 items for your container.
3. Take indiviual pictures of each item (like the duck below)
4. Fill your I SPY bottle with something to hide the items. 
I used egg noodles instead of rice because I was making
this for my 2 year old and I wanted it to be light.
5. Glue the edges of your container closed.
6. HAVE FUN!!!



I am going to make some Alphabet ones for my classroom! I know the kids will love them. The fun shape of the bowl it easy to hold and fun to shake!

Five Little Monkeys.....way TOOOO cute!




Today (go there NOW) I was shopping at the Dollar Tree and I found these SUPPPPPER cute monkey plates! They are a steal with 12 monkeys being in each pack!!!! :)



They were screaming for me to buy them! I bought a set for my whole team!!!!!!! Then I made this to store with the puppets.


I wanted to print a few 5 little monkeys poems to store with them when I found this adorable book on Carls Corner! Click here to grab this: 

I am going to use these plates for retelling and story props! I love these cute little monkeys!
