Teacher Tip Tuesday *LINKY*

Here's today's tip for all ya'll that are still gettin' your groove on with the Easter egg craze!
I blogged about my multiplication eggs a couple weeks ago and then I ran into a slight problem a few days later.
The kids LOVED them so much that they wore the darn things plum clean!!
Then I had a lightbulb moment...
Insert today's Teacher Tip!
Clear nail polish for the win!!
It totally does the trick!
Have you ever tried this?
I made these fun prefix and suffix eggs last week for my littles and the clear polish has kept everything good as new {so far}.
It does smear the permanent marker just a tad.
I don't mind though. It's a million times better than the marker doing that whole disappearing act!
I don't know about ya'll, but this girl does not have the time or energy to be rewriting all my egg centers every two or three days.
Give it a shot and see if you like it!
It's been a HUGE time saver for me :)

  1. How about a tip on getting the darn things to stay together??? I had to fix too many broken eggs yesterday....

  2. I LOVE this idea. Last year I had so many eggs that I had to re-write. I am headed to Target to get some clear nail polish and do this. Thanks for sharing!

  3. I used packing tape and sealed them...they don't look as great...but they've lasted for 12 years...pretty amazing!

  4. I tried this, and like you said, it does smear. It is also still sticky after 24 hours.
