Pinkture Perfect: Bucket seats for the classroom-remove lid, trace lid shape over foam, over material, staple material underneath lid-instant seating & storage! Also, they are tall enough to make great seats at a small group table! Would be a great place for manipulatives (instead of bulky,space stealing boxes!) and inside recess stuff (games,puzzles, etc.) label the boxes and voila!
