Have a General "Lost" bucket. love this idea, I don't know how many times a day students bring me a pencil or marker that they found on the floor. when someone doesn't have something, go grab from the lost bucket!
A twist on crate seating. The pull out drawers offer storage space. Can also use with child sitting on floor & turn crate seating to side as flat surface or if crate does not have holes instead solid surface use like a drum etc.
Use as rewards for frequent flyers in the library Personalized Bookmarks- neat start to school gift . Put library barcode on back and it doubles as their checkout card too! Great center idea for first time in the library, too!
