Ever wondered what to do with those scratched vinyl records?


Turn your old records into 'record bowls or snack trays!

The LP snack tray is sheer genius. No waiting until the bowl is empty to see what a cool party favour you've set out for your guests!

Cool idea to use them as partyfavors, GB! I still love them too much to commit to this new usage, but it is a neat alternative. I actually saw a craft show where they made these in the microwave. No fancy brim like this, and I can only imagine that good ventilation is highly recommended!

Ok, not to get off subject, but since it was so long ago, I'm mentioning it here...has anyone beaten that darn geography game? I've gotten to the last level, but just can't get it!!! That thing has taught me tons, but frustrated the tar out of me in the process!!!!

Hi newbie!

I have not come close to beating the geography game! I did get to level 9 but I need a lot more studying before I can move higher.

I still struggle with the small map size; places that I know the locations of, I still land about 100 kms away.

I am very impressed that you are in contention!

What grades did you teach?

I wonder if the selection of the record labels help to theme a party?

Hi Sawsee! I taught one year each of 5th and 2nd, and the rest of the time I taught 3rd grade. It was sooo much fun. Most students are able to read independently at that point and are still full of wonder, so maintaining a huge class library of picture books, chapter books and cool non-fiction was a joy. I think about every third paycheck went into those shelves!!

Hi newbie!

What a great teacher! I've always felt that education should be given the highest priorities. To pay for additional books is truly admirable!
