Today I'm going to share with you how I organize craftivities that I know I'm going to use year after year. It really does save my sanity! :)
Go ahead and create a model of the craftivity ahead of time. This will save you time in class but will still let students have an example of the final product. Its okay to create one with the students to show the step-by-step process, but you never know when this model will come in handy (especially during those unexpected absences)!
Now, just find an "out-of-the-way" spot to store the bags. I have many of mine hanging in our classroom's restroom. I use the plastic Command hooks and can hang about 5 projects on each hook!
*Additional Tip: Send the "templates" home for parents to cut out. Many parents would love to volunteer in the classroom, but don't have time during the school day. I always find that parents are very eager to have you send home items to be cut out. It's a great way for working parents still feel and be involved in the classroom.
