Monday Made It ~ September 2013

I am so excited to have something for Monday Made It this month!  I have not been very inspired to do much of anything lately, but I actually have three things to share!  So, I am linking up with Tara at Fourth Grade Frolics for Monday Made It!
Last week, a teacher left some wonderful feedback on my Fast Pitch game and wanted to know if I planned to make some with multi-syllabic words.  She had a list in mind from the Reading Street curriculum, so I started working on a game.  Finally ~ some inspiration!  {I had been bummed for some time because I am not doing much these days.}  My son plays soccer, and I had purchased the soccer graphics from The 3AM Teacher at some point last year.  I am working on the game and finishing up with more words from the 4th grade Reading Street curriculum.  Here is a freebie for you to enjoy while I work on the entire set!  It includes game cards for words with -y, -ie, and -ey at the ends of words, a game board, and a recording sheet.  Click on the picture below to grab your own copy!

I posted this a few weeks ago about erasable dry erase markers.  They are so simple to use, and I don't have to worry about handing out erasers too each time.  I just glued pom poms onto the ends of dry erase markers.

And, I love the foaming soaps you get at the stores.  They are wonderful and seem to last longer.  I can even get almost every last drop of soap out of the bottle.  But, I hate paying for it!  I knew there had to be a better way, and I found it with this pin I pinned from The Frugal Girls.
It is so simple!  You just use any liquid soap.  I got the Softsoap on sale and then used a coupon, paying less than a dollar for the entire bottle!

Then, I poured half of the bottle into the old foaming bottle (about a fourth of the way full or one inch up).

I put warm tap water to fill it up the rest of the way.  Then, I tilted it slowly to mix it up.  And slowly is the key!  I didn't even try to shake it up, but I can only imagine what would happen.

And voila ~ I have sudsy soap!  One bottle will make at least two bottles of soap!  And, it still smells great too!  The scent is not even watered down, so your hands smell fresh after washing!

So, what have you made lately?  Share it with all of us on Monday Made It with Tara at Fourth Grade Frolics!

And don't forget to enter our big birthday bash giveaway!  Two gift cards up for grabs!


  1. That looks so simple! I prefer foaming soap, but this will be a lot cheaper.

  2. I had no idea it was so easy to make foaming soap! That is fantastic! I also love the pom poms on the dry erase markers. I found some super cheap generic ones at Staples very similar!
