It's Monday! Time for FREEBIES!

Ok-Last week, I reported record breaking temperatures and both air-conditioning units OUT. Well, I wanted to report that these were remedied. On Monday after 60 hours of speaking with the warranty company (since the previous Friday) and finally getting a courteous service contractor, our air conditioning units were repaired. The a/c was up and running and I was one happy lady.
If you don't know about Manic Monday freebies, you need to head right on over there after reading my post.
This summer I have been focusing mainly on reading and writing. I have been creating bookmarks, graphic organizers, posters, and such. Well, today is not any different. I have a graphic organizer for non-fiction. I call it the 3-2-1.

Grab it here.

Now for Monday Made It with Tara at 4th Grade Frolics

Ok so I actually did not make today's Monday made it. My niece and daughter with the help of my sister made these awesome shirts. (Pinterest inspired).
To make the shirts-
You need spray paint (sounds crazy but yes spray paint)
painter's tape (We used duct tape because that is what we had)
cardboard to use for star cut outs
1. Tape off a square section for the stars. Using a star pattern, cut out stars, and tape inside the square.
2. Tape off the stripes. We measured the distance using the width of the duct tape.
3. Spray with red and blue paint in appropriate areas.
4. Dry. Lift tape and stars.
5. The girls t-shirts have the sleeves and neck cut out and a tie in the back, but the boys do not. (Cut about an 1/2 inch away from collar. Cut out sleeves. Using some of the cut off shirt, make a tie. Gather sides and tie. Our girls use as a cover up and/or wear tank underneath.)




  1. Love the shirt! The girls did a great jobs. Looks like everyone is having fun!

  2. How creative!!!!! We competed in a field day last year and each class in our grade level tye-dyed shirts different colors. They had a blast dying them!
