I have seen everyone doing cute things with Washi Tape and I haven't had time to:
a) figure out what it is
b) figure out how to use it
I went to Michael's and found some Washi Tape in the scrapbooking section. It is just a roll of tape that has cute prints on it! It can peel off, and re-stick, so it is easy to work with! I decided to use the Washi Tape on my student sticks!
Here are my supplies:
1. a jar
2. Washi Tape
3. Popsicle sticks
I wrapped one end of the popsicle stick in the Washi Tape.
Then I wrote the student numbers on the sticks.
How this works is, I will place all of the sticks in the jar, Washi Tape facing up. I will pull out a sick and read the number. That child will either answer the question, or it will be their turn. Once their turn is over, I will place the stick back in the jar, WASHI SIDE DOWN. That way, I will know that the student has already had a turn. Once everyone's stick is Washi side down, I will flip all of the sticks over, and start again! Fair and square? I think so!
In years past, I have done this same thing, but painted both ends of the stick different colors. But then you have to wait for them to dry (and I make a mess). I was going to do the other end of the stick a different color Washi Tape...but why? This saves money and time, and still looks cute!
