In the last couple of years, fire safety codes made it mandatory to take down anything hanging from the ceiling of our classrooms. What? No more swirly ghosts or colorful clotheslines? Tragic. Bound and determined to simulate the clothesline look, Erin and I have hung one flat against our obsolete chalkboards. To help prevent sagging, we added magnets to the back of our clothespins. It’s not perfect but it’s a clothesline, darn it! We created patterns for leaf people and scarecrows. Easy to print, copy and assemble. Provide a sample for your students. The scarecrow shirts are just the triangle pattern, traced on a variety of scrapbook paper. Enjoy!
