New "Put in" task boxes

With so many of our kiddos only doing level 1 or "put in" task boxes, we are constantly making new boxes to keep the kids from getting bored. We have also been trying to use materials that make noise because we have a few kiddos with vision impairments this year. Here are the latest boxes we've made all from cheap supplies from the Dollar Tree or items we already had in the classroom.

These are small yo-yo's from the Dollar Tree. They were $1 for 8! They were in the party favor section.

These little rattles were $1 for 6! I found them in the baby shower section. They're super fun because they actually make noise!

These mini-maracas are great because they make noise too! I found them in the party favor section at  the Dollar Tree.

Simple counting bears!

I found a whole bag of coins in the toy section at the Dollar Tree.

Rubber ducks! I had to buy 2 bags of ducks (there were only 4 ducks in a package) but it was well worth the $2!

  1. What do you use to cut the holes in the top of your bins?

    1. I use a utility knife! If you're cutting the lid, a good tip is to use the Rubbermaid shoe boxes/tubs. They're $1 or less at Target and Walmart. Don't use the shoe boxes from the Dollar Tree! The lids of the boxes from dollar stores are super thin and they crack really badly when you try cutting them! Good luck! :)

  2. Thank you for any other informative site. Where else could I get that kind of info written in such an ideal approach? I have a challenge that I'm just now working on, and I've been at the glance out for such information 8 Simple Ways To Save Money
