Because I'm already thinking about next school year! I painted Mr. Bucket yesterday. The inspiration is from this book:
It's a great program teaching kids to "fill" each others buckets (kind words, polite, etc.) as opposed to dipping from one anothers' buckets. The only problem is my bucket looks more like a pot. We might be filling each others pots next year :).
I totally snatched my idea of painting Mr. Pot/bucket from Mrs. Babbling Abby. She rocked one last year for her classroom.
