Middle school! It comes too quickly. Hard to believe another school year is starting soon. One of my favorite 7th graders wanted some bling for her locker.
We are making locker clips!
They are colorful and crazy – about as goofy as middleschoolers.
Making Locker Clips
Supplies Needed (affiliate links):
Paint Pens. We love our set with Neon and primary colors.
Heavy Duty Magnetic Tape
Decorate the sides of your clothespins. We added triangle teeth, polka dots, zebra stripes, swirls and stars!
It was fun to talk about matching, to hear the things she is looking forward to in the upcoming year, the things that she is worried about… Kids love to talk while they work. I loved each moment!
One of the things I love about paint pens is that they dry pretty quickly, so this is a fast art project. You can add layers of paint with only a couple of minuets in drying time.
Check out our rainbow loom bracelets. It’s another craft that middleschoolers love – and a great chatting/craft time to do together.
