Today was my last day with students. I am CRAZY tired, but I really wanted to quickly write about a fun activity that I do every year to get my desks cleans. It is a student favorite and very effective on that last day!
My kids blow soap bubbles on their desks!
You will need a few ingredients:
- a dish tub or other small plastic container
- dish soap (Dawn works best.)
- a plastic cup
- dish rags (I ask my students to bring them from home.)
You can find all of the supplies in your local grocery store or on Amazon. After lots of time to experiment, students use their dish rags to scrub their desks and chairs. I encourage my kids to really use their muscles!
I often use a Clorox wipe when they are done just to be sure that germs are killed, but the soap does a great job of cleaning the dirt, dust and pencil marks!
Clean desks and happy kids! Win! Win!
Let me know if you give this activity a try!
