Light up Your Room with a Lightbox




Light boxes are a fun way to make a statement in your classroom. You can put up an inspirational quote, make class announcements or use as a sign for a special area of your room.

I started my lightbox collection with a tiny light box I found in the Target Dollar Spot.  It was only $3.00 and is a fun way to add a little spot of brightness to a small space.  Then I purchased a mini lightbox from Michael's Craft Store.  It's made by Heidi Swapp.  

With these two lightboxes I needed to find a cheap way to add my own sayings.  I could use a purchased set of letters, but sliding in all of those individual letters sounded like too much work.  Plus, I like using lots of different fonts and colors.

So, in just a couple of minutes I created a template in PowerPoint.  Now I can create any saying, in any font, in any color.  I can also add graphics to make them extra cute!


You can download this simple template here.  The template is for a mini-lightbox (6.5 X 6.5)  Complete directions are included.  You'll also get the You are Awesome! inserts like you see in the picture above.  Once you click on the download you will need to save the PowerPoint file to your own device.  In order to edit the file you need to open PowerPoint on your computer and then open the file from there.  I have set the file to download as a "view only", but you will be able to edit it when it is in PowerPoint.  You do not need to request permission to edit.  


Have fun!

I recently purchased your K-CCStandards. I don't see the Social Studies though? Did I miss something while purchasing or downloading?

The change of colors with each upgrade was really interesting to watch. Well done.
