Mailbox Letter Writing Station

Thought this would make a great center activity for school. Students can write letters to other students or to the teacher and place them in the classroom mailbox when finished!


Magnetic Cork Board

I am not a fan of notes and pictures cluttering the refrigerator.  I decided to make a cute cork message board so that notes can be left in a more fashionable way. 

Here's what you need:
 a piece of cork board (I bought mine in a set of 4 at Joann's), fabric, hot glue gun, and magnets.  I don't always like to put holes into my notes or pictures, so I wanted to use clothespins.  I hot glued a thumbtack to the back of the clothespins and then stuck them onto the board.  To fancy them up, I glued a piece of scrapbook paper to the top. The fabric is wrapped around the cork board, much like you would wrap a present.  That way you don't need to worry about the edges showing.  I hot glued the fabric as I was wrapping and then at the end, I glued down all of the folds.
