Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.


So to start, you will need:

STRONG-ish tape
Some cups
Some paper
Something to write with
A file drawer metal hanger thing(look at the metal thing in the picture, I don't know what it's called)(iF you don't have this, you can just cut a sturdy slip of paper or ribbon or something that can hold cups)
A big box(optional)

Step 2: Putting Stuff In

Ok. So. Basically, just put pens and pencils and markers and whatever you want to into the cups. You can also put paper and that kind of stuff into the big box if you have one.

Step 3: Labelssss

Cut up tiny slips of paper and write things like, "Color Pencils" and "Pens" on them. Then tape those onto the cups with STRONG TAPE

Step 4: Putting It All Together

Put the box onto the bottoms of the drawer. Take the metal things and clip them onto the drawer, you can also tape strips of paper or something like that. Take the cups and move the metal things to match so the cups can lay on them and the side of the drawers(idk if this makes any sense, just look at the pictures). And then your DONEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YIPEEEEEEEEE!!!!
