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 party Ideas... "They cut the head out of butcher paper, added yarn from the dollar store, and stuffed the heads with leftover plastic grocery store bags. Then, they hot-glued in a dowel rod and tied a rope on for the reins. ... We had sticker eyes and mouths that the kids used to decorate their horses.”" by Sammie_06

Lanterns: The girls made the lanterns at camp. They just took those jars, put stickers on and then sprayed the glass with a spray paint to "frost" it, then removed the stickers. Then they wrapped wire tight around the mouth of the jars and added ribbon to make it cute. Inside is just a battery operated little tea light. Easy peasy and very cute. by lauri

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
