Here's what you need to make a #1 (I had to improvise since there were only numbers and shapes) as a photo prop with your students. On the first day of school, have your kiddos hold up the #1 (or whatever # depending on what you're teaching) and take a cute photo. I'm going to put it on the cover of their memory book.
I bought all of these materials at Michaels
Cute scrap paper (I used 4 sheets)
wooden number or letter
Mod Podge or paint sponges
Paper cutter or scissors
Next, I measured the wooden “1” to determine the length of each piece of scrap paper needed.
Here are the 4 strips I cut out using the paper cutter.
Next, I aligned the paper with the wood and drew a faint line on the paper to know where to cut.
These are the 4 squares that I'm going to Mod Podge onto the wood.
I thought it would be easier to use a bowl for the Mod Podge. It worked best to take the lid off and squeeze it into the bowl instead of with the lid on.
