Quiet Critters

I found this idea on Pinterest and thought it was too cute!  Quiet critters only come out when it's super quiet in the classroom. I was thinking of handing them out to the quietest working students. The quiet critters would just sit on the table as students work. Students would not be able to keep the critters, just borrow them for the day. I think my kiddos are going to feel special earning these fuzzy critters. I just finished making them and plan on using them this week at school.

I bought this cute little painters can at Joann's to store my critters in.

This is the kit I bought from Joann's. They are $7.99 and they were 50% off. All I did was glue the eyes, feet, and hats onto the critters. Super easy and super cute!
