      Milk Crate Bench - Milk crates zip-tied together on their sides so that a bench seat fits on top and $7 red crates from Lowe's can slide inside them.

      From Grade 2 Happenings. This teacher is all about crates and storage. Great for a teacher who has students with autism. I love classrooms that are not a visual challenge for these kiddos. I made this bench out of milk crates zip-tied together. I then added a bench seat to the top. It is also zip-tied on. I bought the red crates at Lowes.
