Bucket Filling Project

One of my favorite ways to teach kids about helping others and making others feel good is to read the book, Have You Filled a Bucket Today?
I decided to make a bucket filling board for my students to have a concrete example of the concept.  First, we must gather our materials...
Small Plastic Cups (I found these at Target in the dollar section...4/$1)
Foam Board
Butterfly Clips
Small Drill

1. Drill a small hole into the back of each cup.
2. Evenly poke holes into the foam board, then use the butterfly clips to secure the cups.
3. Add Labels and names.
4. Hang up in your classroom for your students to enjoy.  Use a bucket on the side to hold hearts, pom poms, or other ways for students to fill buckets.
