Girl Scout bags: Our girls made bags for their GS stuff (binder, sash/vest, etc.). One of the parents used a printer/cutter to cut stencils then we spray glued them on. Then the girls mixed green and white paint to get the shades they wanted. They painted on the dots using the eraser-end of a pencil. Make sure to put cardboard inside first. Let dry overnight and carefully peel away the stencil. by leann

Girl scout promise door hanger. The girls glued the promise to a piece of construction paper that had holes punched in it. Then yarn was used to make the door hanger. The girls are supposed to hang the promise on their bedroom door and are supposed to recite the promise every time they walk through the doorway. Practice makes permanent! by leann

DIY American flag shorts! Place star stickers on one side and painters tape on the other. Then use Tulip fabric spray paint in sapphire and scarlet. Let it dry then peel off painters tape and sticker! Ps- make sure to put a piece of cardboard in shorts so the dye doesn't bleed through. by maria beatriz

I put an absent folder on my absent student's desk.  The students at their table will make sure they get all of the work we do that day put in their folder.  I do check their folder at the end of the day and make sure there are not tests or activities that can only be done whole class. Then, when that student returns the next day, they put their folder in their backpack.  The instructions to the parents are on the folder. by kelseyinfo

DECORATED BINDER CLIPS: The last project I have to share from last year are some little binder clips I made as gifts.  They are simply covered in patterned paper and then I added some stickers to embellish them. These are great to hold up notes and pictures. I also think they would be cute to give with a recipe card in them if you were giving a gift of cookies or baked goods, etc. by Raelynn8
