Monday Made It and a GIVEAWAY


                                             
I have been looking at what everyone is making for Monday Made It and I have been pinning things like crazy, but I had not made anything until yesterday! Now I am linking up with all of you and Tara at 4th Grade Frolics. You see, my husband came up with this "great" idea to have Mondays be "Monday Move It" for my 2 boys this summer. That means, NO ELECTRONICS all day! So, Mommy (that's me) has to figure out the activities for the day usually. Yesterday, was Art Project day at Camp Mommy. We went to Michael's (NO Hobby Lobby here that I know of) and purchased the supplies needed to make Tara's believe sign and some painted letters that say READ!

Tara's believe sign hit home with me. Ever since I was a little girl my mom told me if I believed, Santa would leave something for everyone who believed under the Christmas tree. Santa always left something! I continue this tradition with my children as well. However, I also use it in my classroom to make the children realize they need to believe in themselves. They can do it!  So when I saw the believe sign- I HAD TO MAKE IT!
I purchased an art canvas, acrylic paint and a paint pen. I loved Tara's polka dot design and thought it would be cute in my classroom. Then I bought some wooden letters. My dad spray painted them black for me. They dried super quick in the warm California sun and I hot glued them to the canvas and added some ribbon to hang it with. Now I need to decide where I am going to put it!
Finished product! I LOVE IT!
Here is my other quick project. I bought black wooden letters and used the same colors from the believe sign and attached ribbon to hang them with. Simply, easy, perfect for my classroom! Can't wait to hang them up!
