I love this trick almost as much as the gal who taught it to me! Mrs.B. was one of my two fantastic mentors way back when I first started teaching. I can't begin to tell you how much I learned from her. I still wish I could sneak inside her brain and soak up all her knowledge and wisdom. I am so very lucky to call her friend!
Check out this oh so simple and not to mention inexpensive basket idea from Mrs. B.
3-4 brown bags*
Misc. decorating supplies
*Bag size depends on how big you want your basket. I like these medium bags. I think they are easier for kids to fold and they make the absolute perfect size basket.
I've used these baskets in a variety of different ways over the years. A particular favorite was the year we filled them with the Blessing Mix we made for our study buddies at Thanksgiving. They also make a great presentation for parent volunteer thank you gifts.
