Pinspired: Part 2

Have you checked out the new blog all about special education A Special Sparkle?  There are a lot of great bloggers all working together to bring you the best of special education,.  You can check it out by clicking here.
I hope you enjoying seeing all of the neat ideas I have used that I have found using Pinterest.  Here are a few more.  Just like last time I will leave the links at the bottom of the post.

Valentine’s Day Gift for teachers & paras:  These are pretzels,  a Hershey kiss, and an M & M.  They are so yummy!

Easter/Spring PEEPS  (These were a HUGE hit!) I went to A.C. Moore to get the supplies (using my teacher discount of course!).  I dipped the bunnies in chocolate, let them dry and then wrapped them up.  They were so cute!  I made my husband take some to work and people thought he purchased them from somewhere.

Crate Seats:  I made these when I first started blogging and thought that they deserved a revisit.  I love them and they have held up  well over 2 years.  If you want to see how to make them you can check out my original post here.

This was a mother’s day gift.   My kids are holding different letters to spell out Grandma.
I made this for my son’s 1st grade teacher.  I just love it and will be making one for myself soon.  I have also made them with soap bottles.  This is way easier then you would think! I simply used a transparency!

  1. Hi Caitlin. I have found "A Special Sparkle" which is actually how I found you! I'm returning to the classroom this year after a 5-year hiatus as a stay-at-home mom. I'm going to be working part-time as a Resource Room Specialist while I recertify. I'm looking forward to following your blog as it is going to be a wild and crazy ride for me this Fall and I need all the help I can get! I love those crate seats and can't wait to get my summertime key so I can check out my new space and see what I have to work with! Hugs!

    1. I am so glad you found my blog! If there is anything that I can help you with please do not hesitate to email me.



I love to hear from the crew!
