I Can Be a BUCKET FILLER Craftivity!

Are you a Bucket Filler???  I was TOTALLY excited when our counselor told me that she was doing the "Bucket Filler" character ed program this year!

I just love the basically says that we all have an invisible bucket & everything that we do all day long is either filling someone's bucket or dipping from someone's bucket. Check out this super website for more info:  When "Mrs. Counselor" visited our classroom last week, she was wearing fun overalls & carrying a big ole bucket with her..ADORABLE! {Darn! I wish I would have snapped a pic of her!} I was surprised how quickly my kiddos picked up on the concept of "bucket filling" & "bucket dipping". I overheard one of my lil cuties saying, "Don't dip into me & I won't dip into you!"  Well...I guess she got the idea!?! lol Too cute!

I've seen lots of Bucket Filler ideas on Pinterest-instead of doing individual buckets, I decided to just do one classroom bucket...
I hung the poster with a cute lil bucket right in our doorway. I figured that was a spot that we walk by all day long & might help remind us to be bucket fillers. I found that nifty little bucket in the Target Dollar Bins! {Woop Woop for Target's dollar treasures!} I think I'm going to add pompoms to my bucket when we spot "bucket filler behaviors". And this week we will be making these lil Bucket Filler Cuties...

If you would like to check out this lil craftivity, just click on the pic!
Here are some of the posters that I made to hang around the classroom-just click the pic below to grab your FREEBIE copy!

    PS- I am having a giveaway for a classroom organizer! :)

  10. Our counselor did that activity a couple years ago and the kids LOVED it! I don't know why we didn't continue it. Although this summer our entire staff had Capturing Kids Hearts training - which I loved! In CKH you have "affirmations" the kids are supposed to give to each other. I think this TOTALLY goes with that. I'll have to try it out in my class!

    BTW - Just became a follower! I just started blogging myself and WOW! I have a lot to learn!
