Project of the Day (inspired by Pinterest)

Froggy Cupcakes




































I saw this amazing craft and knew I just had to do it. Can I just say that Pinterest is great?

I know we are all loving it right now. Amazing!

Anyway, I decided these would be a great homework incentive.

I thought about doing Homeworkopoly, but I wasn't completely sold on that idea.

I have decided that these scratch off tickets are the best idea.


I assign homework Monday - Thursday.

I will be keeping tabs on their homework with my clipboard.

Every student who complete their homework assignments all week will get to choose a classroom lottery card on Friday morning.
Homework Log for Index Card


 I made the cards in PowerPoint.

After I printed them and cut them out, I added the small square of clear contact paper in the small square around the prize. That way I had a reference when I painted the silver paint and Dawn liquid mixture.

Then I mixed 2 parts acrylic silver paint to 1 part Dawn dishwashing liquid. I would never have thought to use dishwashing liquid, but it really works!

I had to do several coats to completely cover the words in the box. Then I glued the cards to bright colored card stock to make it fun.

I still need to make many more, but I thought this was a great start.

Here are mine. The bold font is Grilled Cheese BTN, the question "What will you win?" is Impervious, and inside the square is Chalkboard.



Here is a blank version for anyone who wants it. If you want me to send you the PowerPoint version leave me a comment and I will email it to you! I hope someone finds this to be a helpful idea. It was very simple and I think my students are going to L.O.V.E. it!!!


Pinspiration Linky Party

UPDATE 7/17/2012
The Scribd documents were not working, so I have switched them to Google docs instead. I am overwhelmed at the response these have gotten. I hope you have enjoyed them! Instead of leaving a comment with your email, I will be able to get you copies of the ppt versions (if you want to tweak them) much faster if you will email me directly.

Its wonderful idea i must try this for my kids and my kids friends i am sure it will be full of fun no doubt any card game is full of fun. I wonder is there any special Toner Cartridges needed to print think card for making scratch games just like you print the scratch cards.

Cathy Black said...

I love this idea. I realize that it has been a while since you loaded these, but I cannot find the blank ones. I would love to add things like extra points on chosen test, barefoot in the classroom for the day,etc. Both the sets on your page are filled in. I would also LOVE the powerpoint if you are still willing. I teach 4th grade and this will be great!!! Thank you in advance.

Maybe I missed it, but after a card has been scratched, can it be repainted? Or is it better to apply a new square of paint/dishwashing liquid? Any other suggestions? I love the idea by the way!
