Summertime and the livin' is easy!  So happy I can finally say that!
I've been spending my free time wisely:  sleeping, shopping, and of course...
CREATING!!

I'm so excited to share this newbie with you... it's a BRIGHT way to start off the new school year!  Take a look:

Inside there are two fun crafts to light up your back-to-school hallways!  Here's one:

This isn't just your average crayon box...

It's a pocket for a little writing prompt!!
SO fun!!

The other craft is a BIG crayon:

Underneath the label is space for writing:
{Don't mind how weird my hand looks there!}
Your kiddos can make them in a variety of colors for a vibrant display!

Here's a closer look at some of the writing prompts/labels that are included:

If you like what you see, or to learn more, a bright year {a craftivity} is available in my TpT shop!!  I hope you LOVE it!!  I'd love to hear what you think!! :)

This is sooo perfect for my classroom! I have a loose theme of school supplies in my room and I normally write their names on the teacher store die cuts. This would be a great beginning of year project and an awesome way to build community that first week.
