If you liked it, then you shoulda put a pin on it...

Seriously - like I need another addiction!? Ahhh, I cannot keep up with the ones I have now. Facebooking, couponing, blogging, and now pinning!? Somewhere in the midst of the land of productivity - I'll get my classroom ready. *wink, wink* 
I'm not sure why someone did not think of this idea before hand...but to have the ability to organize all of the great concepts you gather on the Internet is brilliant! I am adding to my boards daily, and am thrilled with all of the ideas I've collected. If you are not a member, you must become one. However, you must be invited. Simply shoot me an email and I'll send you an invite (erinee21@aol.com). Check out what I've made so far...
I started out with this.....and ended up with THIS...
A sweet birthday gift for a fellow teacher friend. Now - to make one for myself! Also, I loved this idea and just HAD to pin it. I may have to go and find a few more quarter machines. ;-) It is just another great way to keep dice quiet and from flying all over your classroom. If you missed my first post on quiet dice, check that out [here].
Do you have any of these laying around? Just stick a dice in them and...
VOILA! Students shake the little container and the dice stays put (and remotely quiet) inside. Score!

If are you pinning things, let me know - I'd love to follow you. Just thought I would share some of my latest creations. What have you pinned lately? ~Miss E

Okay, so I feel really, really foolish... but what is the container that the dice are in? I honestly have no idea. I love the idea and would love try it, if someone will p.l.e.a.s.e. tell me about the container.

Ok - so I'm gonna have to follow all of you on Pinterest now! Yay! Follow me - mine is http://pinterest.com/erinee21/

@Camille - They are the toy cases from the quarter machines you find at restaurants/grocery stores/etc. Ya know...bracelets and bouncy balls come in them!? :)

Oh!!! Got it! Now I understand! I'll have to start hanging around those machines and asking for the empty container. LOL! Thanks Erin!
