A few years ago While I was visiting my dads house he handed over a plastic grocery bag filled with my school “Crap” as he would have put it!!! Certificates, reports, awards, pictures etc… It was a jumbled mess but so fun to go through non the less!
I found an award I was given in Kindergarten, ” Great pumper award!!!” I’m sure my teacher had to rack her brain to come up with that one. I wasn’t a good speller or math whiz so being a good pumper on the swings was my top skill at the time! Still it was probably better then getting a “Great pusher in of her chair award!”
I also found a 10th place ribbon for some field day event, a poem I wrote in the 2nd grade and a slew of other smile inducing pieces of paper!
Now with my oldest about to start school I wanted to come up with a better way to store and organize her “School crap!” When she graduates High School I’ll be able to give her this instead of an Albertsons bag!
On each hanging file I’ll be displaying their “First day of school” photo along with their signature.
I can’t wait to see how their handwriting changes over the years!
I picked up the pink crates at Walmart and let each girl picked out the ribbon they wanted. I’ll add their name in vinyl just above the bow.
These cute crates are easy to store in our guest room closet and even stack!!!
So there you have it! A place to put all those special treasures our little monkeys come home with!
