Any teacher will tell you that bathroom passes are gross. The children return them to you wet, and heaven only knows what they are wet with! This summer I decided to make some passes that the children could carry with them and return to a bin when finished.
I'm actually quite proud of them. I went to Cdn Tire and asked for 10 paint stir sticks. Then I bought some bright coloured spray paint (lime green and bright purple, as it turns out) and a friend sprayed them on both sides with a single colour. The green pass is for the washroom and the purple ones are hall passes. I drilled holes in them and bought some bright orange string at the dollar store and viola! passes that the kids like and I can see from a mile away!
