I cleaned out bins of scraps this summer. This is a string quilt that I made. I used the itsy bitsy scraps for a back to school project for my fifth grade students.
This activity was a great back to school activity. I printed out positive character traits using a large bubble font. I bagged small scraps in zip lock bags and distributed bags to students.
Students worked to glue scraps into the letters.
It was a relaxing activity and a chance for kids to get to know each other on the first day of school.
Positive character traits were displayed on a class bulletin board.
I made 12 inch blocks of string scraps and sewed blocks together to make the scrap quilt.
The scrap string quilt is a good size and I'm happy that I put my scraps to great use. The small scrap pieces went to a good cause (possitve character traits). Pass on your scraps to teachers and they will find a way to use them. How might you use very small scraps for other crafts or school projects? Let me hear your ideas! Thanks for visiting. Best, Mary
