The BEST Middle School Classroom Incentive

    Ok, I just recently posted the classroom coupons I created on Facebook. I LOVE classroom coupons – they’re so versatile! You can create a coupon for almost anything. Do you know what I love more than a coupon? Scratch-offs! I mean, who doesn’t love unveiling a “prize”? The mystery, the suspense… your students will NEVER get tired of these!

    DIY Scratch-Offs

    Materials Needed:

    1. Classroom Coupons (keep reading for a FREE printable)
    2. Acrylic Paint
    3. Dish Soap
    4. Clear Scotch or Packing Tape
    5. Paint brush & Scissors

    Step 1: Print out Classroom Coupons

    Create your own classroom coupons or choose from these pre-made ones which are customizable! I created 7 themes to last you the year (or head over and grab these FREE “Crazy Fun” coupons!) Print them out on cardstock paper for best results!

    Step 2: Cover the “Scratch-Off” Area with Tape

    Cover the area to be scratched off with tape.

    Step 3: Make the Scratch-Off Paint

    Mix 2 parts paint to 1 part dish soap (“ah hem” please tell your 7th graders that ratios DO exist in real life!)

    Step 4: Paint the Classroom Coupons

    Lastly, paint over the area you would like to be scratched off. You will need about 3-4 coats to fully cover the area, so don’t worry if it looks see through at first! Click here for the Back-to-School template!
