Children mark the Bingo card with "Smarties Candy" when the pictures are held up. The first person to get 4 pictures in a row is the first winner of the game. The players then clear the candies off the bingo card and look for a unique picture. The second winner is the player who has the card with the unique picture.

Etched Dish Soap Dispenser

Etching on glass is easy and fun. Years ago stencils were made with contact paper and a xacto knife but now the Cricut machine makes it very easy. The Lesson plan teaches how to cut the stencil with the Cricut machine but if you don’t have a machine you can purchase the stencils and/or kits below.
I have taught this type of class in many ways and have learned from many mistakes. One time we taught this class and let people put their names on glass casserole dishes.  It was a fun idea but we made the mistake of letting them choose the font and we had to print every name so the class took forever! Another lesson I learned is when we bought etching cream in a large bottle and dumped it on a small foam plates for each participant. What a waste of money!  An expensive part of this class is the etching cream and when we put it in foam plates most of the etching cream was thrown away after class as the plate went into the garbage.

As I started planning this activity for this webpage I decided to shop around for the vinyl to see if we can do this project cheaper. As I thought about the lessons I learned throughout the years I remembered when I first started teaching this class we used contact paper and a xacto knife to make the stencils and a light went off in my head…. I tried cheap old drawer liner contact paper in my Cricut machine to cut out the letters. Oh my gosh.. this saved a huge amount of money!

Important tips that will help make this class run smooth and save money.

  • The containers I sell on this webpage have a lid that can be closed and the etching cream can be used at a later date instead of throwing it away.   The container does 3-5 dish soap dispensers so 3 people can share this container if extra stencils are ordered.  Buying the etching cream this way is a lot cheaper than if a larger bottle is purchased and divided out.
  • Use the cheap roll of drawer liner contact paper to cut the stencils instead of buying the expensive vinyl.
  • Have the stencils cut out before class.  Don’t let the participants choose the font or the class will last for hours!
  • I purchased the olive oil dispensers from Walmart but they only have a few in stock.  Order them online and have then shipped to the store or talk to the manager and ask them to bring in enough olive oil dispensers for your class.  Make sure you plan this activity far enough in advance to order the dispensers.

The kit comes with 1 stencil and 1 ounce jar of Armour Etching Cream.    3 ounce jars of Aromour Etching cream can be purchased at the craft stores for about $13.00 but for a class environment it’s better for each person to have a small container for their use.

The kit comes with enough etching cream to do 3-5 dish soap dispensers (additional stencils can be purchased). Olive oil dispensers can be found at Walmart or other department stores.
