I love Lakeshore!
This week, I received a whole bunch of awesome learning station activities from Lakeshore, which were funded by Donors Choose. Did you know that Lakeshore is now partnering with Donors Choose? You can read all about it here! This makes me very happy! And my students too!
Speaking of Lakeshore, I was recently contacted by them and asked if I would like to review a product from there new line of educational toys for the home. I said YES! Of course! You can find these products at any Lakeshore store and online here.
I chose this:
This is the Arts and Crafts Supply Center.
It is loaded with tons and tons of creative craft supplies, like pom-poms, wiggle eyes, ribbon, foam pieces, popsicle sticks, beads, glue, markers, and more. Everything is held in little drawers in a very attractive and durable bright blue organizer. It's perfect for home and the classroom. It really came in handy this week, because we had lots of rainy days and were stuck inside. Once I whipped out this baby, 19 frowns turned upside down!
Check out these excited faces! (I took these pictures on 9/11, so my students are looking patriotic in their reds, whites, and blues!)
First, they tried out the glitter!
Then, they made the cutest popsicle stick puppets.
And bracelets too!
They tried everything! And the next day, more kids enjoyed all this art center has to offer. And, every day since then, my students have been eagerly waiting for free time, so they can create all kinds of fun stuff.
I love this art organizer for many reasons. But, above all, I love that it is very easy to set up. My students take care of everything! They put on the table cloth, put the organizer on the table, and have at it. I don't have to do anything. Except, that is, watch how excited they are to explore what's in the drawers and ooh and ahh at their masterpieces.
I highly recommend the Arts and Crafts Supply Center for every classroom and home. If you click on this link, you'll find a 20% off coupon, good at any Lakshore store or online. It expires on 10/31/13.
And, here's more good news! The kind and generous folks at Lakeshore are allowing me to give away one Arts and Crafts Supply Center to a VERY lucky follower. Just enter as many times as you want on the rafflecopter below. Good luck!
