In my classroom, I use MANY crates and large tubs for storage. To help the kids put materials away, I created Full Page Classroom Labels in a rainbow and bright colors design. I was inspired from the crate labels from Stacy at Riedmiller’s Room.
Creating and Attaching Crate Labels
Step 1: Print the labels you need for your own organizational needs. I printed my labels on card stock to make them more durable. I also put each one in a page protector. This way I can change out the labels easily if I need to.
Step 2: Pick the ribbon you want. I used red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple and pink. My class theme is bold colors. Cut 2 pieces for each label about 8 inches long. Be sure to use thin ribbon. It makes the next step MUCH easier. I tried using a thicker ribbon first, and it did not work.
Step 3: Put the ribbon through the holes of the crate and the holes of the page protector. Then tie in a knot.
If your crate has no holes, make holes with a drill. Put the page protector on the crate and mark where the holes are. Carefully drill on the marks (be safe, wear goggles and watch your fingers).You are finished! You now have cute labels for your big baskets, tubs and crates! They are going to look awesome in my classroom.
