Locker Rescue: From Messy to Impressive
Fancy spraypainted magnetic Ziploc® organizers
- Spray paint
- Painter’s tape, washi tape and/or stickers for stenciling
- Super strong magnets
- Hot glue gun
- 1. Have your student pick a few small Ziploc® containers, sized for their supplies and needs. We used extra small square and small rectangle Ziploc® containers for our locker.
Make a stencil on the Ziploc® container by using the painter’s tape or stickers. Ideas include stars, hearts, or circles for polka dots.
- 3. Carefully spray paint the upside down container. Once the paint is dry, remove the tape or stickers.
- 4. Hot glue the magnets to the back or side of the container.
- 5. Hang in locker and fill!
Printable personalized calendar
- Cardstock paper
- Printable Calendar
- Quart size Ziploc® brand bag
- Dry erase marker
- Magnets or clips to hold bag to locker
- 1. Print this calendar on a sheet of cardstock paper (use any color you prefer, just not too dark).
- 2. Trim the calendar on dotted lines so it will fit nicely into a quart size Ziploc® brand bag.
- 3. Place calendar in the bag and, using magnetic clips, attach to a flat surface on locker door. You can write on the Ziploc® brand bag with a dry erase marker.
DIY Magnetic Washi Tape Clothespins
- Washi tape (found at your local craft store)
- Strong magnetic tape or very small strong magnets (if using magnets instead of magnet tape you will also need a hot glue gun)
- 1. Most washi tape is the same size of a standard clothespin, making this so easy it’s ridiculous. Cut enough tape to fit 1 side of the clothespin, plus about ¼” - ½” extra on either side.
- 2. Center the tape on the clothespin edge and fold remaining tape over the opposite side of the clothespin edge.
- 3. Add magnetic tape to the back of the clothespin.
