    We use the pictures from the MANY EC catalogs we get.

    Sorry I forgot to post how we make our labels.
    1. First, figure out what you will put on each shelf.
    2. Pick a background color for the labels from your construction paper collection. Use one color to have a neat appearance.
    3. Fold the paper in half lengthwise then into thirds. These are the labels to glue the pictures on.
    4. Use Microsoft Word to make a chart and then plug in the names of objects and cut out and paste eveyrthing on the label. I leave a nice black line to outline the name of the item.
    5. Glue everything on the construction paper. Be consistent with lining up everything.
    6. Place at front edge of shelf and cover with sheet of clear contact.
    Things we can't find pictures of in the catalogs we just take a digital picture and print out in color.

    My shelves look neat and organized.

    I just use a digital camera and a label maker. I use the black flannel board as a background to lay the toys on and take the picture. Then I use the label maker to make a label for the name of the toy. Both the picture and the label are placed on a piece of clear contact paper leaving enough edge to securely stick the label to the shelf. This looks very neat and it is an exact picture of the toy. I found this to be much less trouble than using the catalogs which is what I used to do.
