I collected the jars I had lying around and dropped a little bit of paint in them. I used enough so that I could rotate the jar and paint would cover the inside.
I am going to use the yellow one for my birthday pencils. I will use the green and pink ones for pencil management (sharp, dull) and will use the blue jar to hold paint brushes.
I found these little birthday candles I had around my class and am going to write each kiddos' name and bday on one. Easy-peasy!
** I had to buy some adhesive remover to get that sticky residue and paper off**
