Use Easter Egg Dye to Color Clothespins {Clutter-Free Classroom's Clever Tips for Teachers} Tip #3

I was at Target yesterday.

Truth be told, that is a statement I could make just about any day. But the point of this story is that while I was there I noticed that the Easter products were marked at 50% off.

And while your first instinct may be to fill your big red cart with the discounted candy, I wanted to share an idea that uses Easter Egg dye. I have decorated clothespins in many ways, but none quite as easy or cheap as using discounted egg dye. I suggest using glass dishes or bottles and letting them soak for a day or two to get a really nice rich color.

Clothespins are essential in my classroom. I use them to hang anchor charts. I've used them for clip chart behavior plans and also to hold papers together. 


Here's another thought: Hide the green egg dye until next year when you can make Green Eggs and Ham to celebrate Dr. Seuss or do as I did and dye the eggs in your kitchen green on St. Patrick's Day.
