This time of year there’s no one more highly organized than a teacher. In addition to getting all those seating charts, lesson plans, and assignments in hand, an ultra-tidy classroom space makes all the rest of those tasks easier. So you can bet teachers keep their rooms and desks shipshape. Luckily, that means there’s lots of smart, crafty, even downright cheap ideas out there to crib from.
Color clothes pins by soaking in food coloring. In each jar or container, pour boiling water, a tablespoon of vinegar and food coloring drops and mix well. You can use any combination of drops to make varying colors and shades. I used both traditional food colors and the neon food colors to make about a dozen different colors. Add your clothespins and let them soak for at least an hour.
