We’ve been using Post-it Notes for years as well. Back when I was teaching in a classroom, I had them all over my desk. It’s such a great way to jot down a few (or 15) thoughts. They’re also great for making short grocery lists or tucking inside a planner when you need just a little more room. We’ve also been having fun with them on the blog. The possibilities are truly endless! Here are 4 fun and functional ways to use Post-it Notes!
4 Ways to Use Post-it Notes:
1. Create a Summer Bucket List: last summer we had a blast coming up with a whole list of ideas for our family to accomplish all summer long! Each idea gets its own colorful note. The rainbow of post-it notes help to add excitement to the whole list making process!
2. Make Colorful Post-it Note Pictures: my kids love to make fun pictures, decorating the car with their creations! This is a simple, inexpensive way to keep the kids entertained during long road trips!
3. Road Trip Grab Bags: label your fun and silly grab bags with Post-it Notes for the kids to open every hour on while you’re traveling. A little something fun in each bag makes for hours of road trip entertainment!
4. Labeling Quilt Patch Work: I love to use these when I need to label different rows and columns for my quilting and crocheting! I never leave home anymore without post-its in my crafting bag!
