Have a Nice Poop - Free Bathroom Printout

I have just finished redoing my basement bathroom.  I had a spot on the wall across from the toilet that I needed some art work.  I just happen to come across this saying online and thought that it would be hilarious to put on the wall.  So I went to work to make a sign and here is what I came up with.  

If you would like one also just click on it to make it large.  Then right click and save it into your pictures.  Then you can print it out like you would a picture or use your favorite printing program.

Here's my son's reaction to the sign that he sent to the family on Snapchat.

I love you to the beach and back towel rack

I just redid my basement bathroom and decided to do a beach theme.  I had a piece of leftover wood from a backyard wedding that we did for my son.  Aha,  I realized that I could make a cute beach sign for my bathroom.  Here's how I did it.

I played with fonts on my computer until I found one that I liked.  A great place for a variety of free fonts is fontspace.

Then I printed out a copy to use for my towel rack.

I drew some guidelines in chalk and layed the hooks on to see if it was spaced right.

Then I chalked in my words.

Here is my towel rack after I painted it.  Once it is completely dry you can wipe off the chalk with a damp cloth.

Here it is in my basement bathroom, all ready for company.

How to print clear labels from your printer.

I saw on Pinterest that you could print clear labels from your printer.  I went to the blog and tried it.  The method they used was a soak overnight method, which was a DISASTER.  Well I came up with this idea ALL BY MYSELF.

With my idea you will need your printer and packaging tape.  That's it.  Here's how easy it is.

The first thing that I did was design a bunch of labels in different fonts on my computer.  Then I printed out the paper.

After I printed out the paper I used packaging tape to cover all of the words.  Then I reprinted the paper with the packaging tape on it.  This way I knew exactly where the packaging tape needed to go.

Then I place another piece of packaging tape on top of the packaging tape with the print on it

Then I rubbed the packaging tape with the back of a pen so all of the ink would stick to the packaging tape.

When I pulled up the packaging tape the ink came with it.

Then I placed the labels on the canister and the trash.

Here's a few more that I did:

Here's a copy of my printout if you would like to use it.  Just right click on your computer.  Then save it into you pictures or copy and paste it in your printing program.

As you can see, how well the label turns out depends on how well you rub over the ink.  This was so much fun, and a bit addicting.  I wanted to label everything.  Let me know how yours turns out.

ZAP! The Game for Learning in a Fun Way! Free Game Printout.

This game idea came from another teacher and she got it from another teacher.  I tried to Google it to see where it came from.  There were so many different versions and none of them looked like this one. If you know the creator of this version let me know so that I can give that person credit.

To play this game write a bunch of questions for whatever subject is being taught.  Tape all of the ZAP cards up on the board.    Divide the students into 4 or 5 teams, depending on how many students there are.   Ask the first team a question.  If they get it right they give their team one point.  Then they have to choose one of the ZAP cards.  They have to do whatever the card tells them to do.  If they get a ZAP that means the have to take away all the points. If the card is blank, nothing changes.

This game is fun because the teams never know if they are going to win, or get ZAPPED.  The points are always changing. 

Here are the printouts for the game.  Just click on the picture to make it large.  Then right click and save it into your photos, or copy and paste it into your printing program.  Be sure to size it to a full sheet of paper.  I print mine out on colored cardstock and then laminate it so that it will last.

Print out 3 copies of the following page.

Print one of each of the following pages on the opposite side of the Zap page above.  When you cut out the pieces it should say Zap on one side, and the instructions on the opposite side.

I hope that you have a lot of fun with the game.  Please let me know how your game went.  I always love hearing from you.

Easy to Make Grinch Ornaments

For our Grinchmas Christmas Parties we needed a Grinch Ornament to make.   After scouring for ideas, I just went to Michael's to see what I could find.  For just a few dollars I found these foam craft ornaments with just the right color green for the Grinch.

We used the light green one for the base of the Grinch.  

For the hat we cut off the tip of the red foam ornament.  You can see the example of how it was cut by looking at the dark green foam on the right.  Then we glued the red hat onto the light green foam ornament.  From there we added the yellow candy monster eyes that I bought during Halloween.  If you can't find any you can color the white ones yellow.

or you can make your own eyes with yellow and red foam.  Use a sharpie marker for the nose, mouth and eyebrows.  We used a cotton ball for the trim on the hat.

For the hair we used the leftover scraps from my other Grinch projects.  I bought the green fur at JoAnn's.

One of our crafters added a part of the poem printout that you can find here.

Here's an example a some of our finished Grinches.
We had a blast! 

Plus your guests get a keepsake to remember the fun 
Grinchmas Party.
