Do you struggle with classroom organization? Many of us do. I don’t just want my classroom to be organized, but I want it to be beautiful as well. Small manipulatives are especially tricky to keep contained (pardon the pun!). I found the perfect solution with Oriental Trading Company.
I fell in love with these Pacon Interlocking Storage containers as soon as I saw them! They’re so functional because they take up very little room. Since they stack and lock together side by side, they take up much less space than the plastic tubs I was previously using. I chose to put my most colorful manipulatives and craft supplies in them to keep the bright theme I already have going on in my classroom. I’m envisioning an entire shelf of these beauties by the time school starts next year!
How to Use Them
The lids keep the manipulatives securely inside, but they’re easy for even little hands to remove. I printed round labels on these full sheet labels, cut them out with scissors, and adhered them to the front of each container.
The containers are VERY reasonably priced and are just plain functional and FUN!
I think they would also be fabulous at home for storing hair bows, sharpies, ribbon, and more!
