Easy Mini Banner

Happy Halloween! I hope you are all making some fun memories tonight and having a great time! We will be bundling up her in northern Alabama. It is going to be more like January than October for us.  Crazy!

I wanted to share the mini banner I made the other day. I love the look of book page banners! To make the letters, I printed out the phrase and taped it to the window. Then it's as easy as tracing with a Sharpie!

Super easy, right?  I think I will be making lots of these mini banners!

Have a great weekend!

School: Letter Tile Storage

Here we are a few months into our homeschool journey.  One of the things the kids like to do is an activity called making words.  I give them a set of letter tiles that make a 'secret word' and together we make all the words you can using those letters. 

I needed an easy way to store and search for the letters we need...a Ziploc bag wasn't cutting it so I came up with this idea. 

During a trip to Hobby Lobby I picked up this divided box and used my 40% off coupon, came home, and started organizing.

Using washi tape, I labeled each compartment. Since I only wanted one box to store on the shelf so I assigned two letters per compartment. The last two compartments are for blends, word beginnings, and endings. 

I am thinking there are a few different ways I could use containers like this. And by the way...the vertical sides of each compartment is removable. Lots of possibilities!

Have a great weekend!
