First things first, who doesn't love Skippyjon Jones? Well, that is who Kohl's is featuring for their Kohl's Cares Back to School Kids Cause. I was there yesterday and grabbed up my own Skippyjon & friends plushies along with the books for my library.
Skippyjon Plush & "Skippyjon Jones In the Dog House" Book
Bumble Bee Plush & "Skippyjon Jones" Book
Sock Monkey Plush & "Skippyjon Jones Lost in Spice" Book
and finally, Penguin Plush & "Skippyjon Jones Class Action" Book
Then I rushed home and placed an order for the online exclusive dinosaur plushie and "Skippyjon Jones and The Big Bones" Book.
Along with a cute little Skippyjon backpack. I figure I can use the backpack to create a take home pack to rotate among my students.
This is a great little resource book to help teach my kiddos how to make healthier eating choices. Since I have a full kitchen in my room we will be able to make some of the offerings and maybe even do some taste comparisons so they can see healthier doesn't have to taste icky :)
Now, on to my makeover... No, I didn't go get a beauty makeover, but three of the chairs I have in my room did. You may have seen one of them in my reading nook post. If you didn't take a look at my lil nook. I am pretty proud of how it is turning out.
These are the chairs that I started out with. They are probably about 25 years old but they are Lazy Boys and are quality pieces of furniture as far as their bones go. We started out by taking them apart. A good friend of mine suggested we leave the old fabric over them and just cover over it so that is what we did.
Counting the one in my reading nook already, this is 2 of the 3 done.
And this is a picture of the two swivel rockers after they are all done. I can't wait to get them back into my room.
Whew, yesterday was a busy day. Then hubby and I had a birthday dinner party to go to last night. Today has been all about relaxing...zzzz.... and napping ;) Now that nap time is over, time to get back to work creating more fun things for my classroom.
...and remember to stay 'Wild About School!'
