Teacher’s Black Box February 2017

Teacher’s  Black Box is a box of items which will include “basic and innovative supplies to enhance their educational impact”.  Now I am not a teacher but if you put a chance to get stationery in front of me, there’s only a small chance I’ll turn it down.  They also say there will be a snack in every box.  Boxes start at $20.00 but go down with longer terms.  Normally the shipping on this one would have stopped me from ordering but they were offering a promo code “ONETIME” that gave you free shipping on orders over $50.  That code is still valid so make sure you use it if you want to sign up.  Let’s see what joy they have delivered to me today.

20170219_195131The box is very Valentine’s themed.  There are hearts and pink and red and white papers everywhere.  It is also very heavy.

20170219_195148First out are some mini glue sticks.  I have a regular glue gun but not a mini one.  These ones are non-yellowing, which is great.  I can’t wait to burn my fingers on these!

20170219_195159These are packs of four crayons.  I love the Peanuts pictures on them too.  These will be great to take on trips or when we know we’ll need to wait and keep little fingers amused. SO cute.

20170219_195229Sticking with Peanuts, we have two pencils with the characters on them.  One is straight Snoopy with hearts and the other is Lucy and Snoopy with hearts.  I actually prefer a normal pencil over a mechanical one so I’m happy to add more to my stash of them.

20170219_195244These are two small Valentine’s with pins on them.  I have many years of giving out Valentine’s in my future so these are two less I will have to buy.

20170219_195254All lollipops go straight into the treat bag for the girls.  These are cute in the heart shape and I’m thinking that they will be chosen very shortly.

20170219_195311How great that they gave me the gun to go with the glue sticks! This will be so much easier to use on crafts than the full sized one I have already.

20170219_195353Holy crap…..an electric pencil sharpener!  There is no way I ever thought this would show up in a box.  I am not entirely sure that I really need one of these but I do know that I want it.  I think I may take this to work or maybe I’ll keep it on the desk at home until the girls are big enough to use it.

This month was better than last time for me.  A few of the things are really great and a couple are not for me, but that’s only because I’m not a teacher.  I can see how these things would be useful for a teacher and they also work well for those of us who love these things.  I’m not sure how any of these particular items are innovative but maybe I’m missing that part of it.   You can find this box on CrateJoy if you are interested.
