Monday Made It

I think I have a problem updating this unless it's to join a linky party.  I'm going to get better...I promise.

Anyway, I love linking up to this linky party and seeing what everyone has made for his/her classroom.  So of course, I'm going to link up for

And I have TWO Monday Made It's!  I'm so excited.  The first one is one of those melted crayon art pieces.  My wife and I tried these when the buzz was first building about melted crayon art.  I loved it.  And right now, my Wal-Mart is selling these packs of 8 crayons that all fall in the same color scheme.  Once I saw them, I knew I needed to do this type of project for my room.  So I did.

I painted the Mickey head and let it dry completely first.  Then I used painter's tape to completely cover the Mickey head.  I hot glued those crayons on, and then started blow-drying them. 

If you're going to do this project, be forewarned that sometimes the melted wax goes in every which direction.  I had paper spread out all around this beast just in case.  But I'm really excited about how this turned out.

The second Monday Made It is my new treasure box.

This box was a yard sale find years ago.  It has been at my house, holding all of my extra treasure box goodies.  I have been using a shoe box for my treasure box in my classroom.  So tonight, literally 3ish hours ago, I decided it was time to use this in my room instead.  It was painted with Noah's Ark on it.  Because I'm at a public school, and there are some issues going on in my county and the neighboring county about religion and school, I decided to just paint over it and then I don't have to stress.

I just painted the whole thing black and then painted Mickey's pants, glove and shoe on it.  I'm really excited about this one too!

I might definitely have an addiction to all things Disney.  It keeps me young though, right?
