Rockin' Yard Sale Finds

Last week I went shopping at some yard sales with my mother-in-law.  We were on the lookout for some fun things for my classroom.  I'm going with a *Rock Star* theme next year so I needed some rockin' goodies to add into my room decor.   


Here is what I found (and it was all VERY cheap): 


I got 10 of these cool records.  They still work too.  It would be really cool if I had a way to play them in the classroom!

What kid doesn't like Christmas lights?!  I got these for 50 cents and they work too.  The lights move to the music.  I'm pretty sure it just plays Christmas songs, but I think my kiddos will love the 'dancing' lights.  I know I do!  

This metallic twist was only 25 cents so I had to get it.  It's too cool not to use for something.  

These two stars were only 10 cents a piece.  I'd like to have more in different colors.  

This is just for me!  This is my favorite Disney movie.  I love the songs in this movie.  It's the kid in me.  :)

There was one more really cool thing I got, but it's not ready yet so I'm going to wait and share it with you later!  My mother-in-law is very creative and is helping me with it.  I promise to show pictures of it when it's done!!  I'm so excited about it!  :)

I also bought some rock star sunglasses for my kiddos to wear.  I want a class picture with them in sunglasses for my school website!  

I have found lots of other ideas on Pinterest...which is of course no surprise.  I just need to get busy making things.  

If you have any ideas of what I could do with my rockin' goodies, please let me know!  I 'd love to hear some ideas!  

Once my grad school course is over I plan on getting more done!!  

Near the top of my list though, is to go to more yard sales!  :)

I'm a teacher too, and I love yard-saling for my classroom. You've reminded me that I need to get going again for next year! I teach high school, but I still love decorating, and I think even my "older kids" appreciate it. I've been using a cool yard-sale site called http://www.yardsalesearch.com. I love it because it maps out all of the local yard sales for me. Just wanted to pass that tip along :)
