Pinterest Inspiration

My new obsession is Pinterest. I have found so many good ideas from other teachers on Pinterest. If you haven't joined yet, you should check it out. You need an invitation so let me know if you need one.  I've been working on creating the crate seats that I have been seeing everywhere.

Last weekend, I made my seats. If you are going to make them, I suggest having a helper. It is hard to get the fabric tight while you are using the staple gun without some help. My mom was generous enough to help me out.

I took my crate seats to school today. I'm going to use them as extra seating on the carpet. My carpet isn't very big so this gives me a way to seat all the kids comfortably. My fabric isn't clear in the picture but it is blue and green circles. I think it fits nice with my ocean theme.
