I wish I could go back to the simpler days, when we all spent an hour of our day building some crafts with paste, cardboard and pipe cleaners. Then, we could bring it home and show our parents.

You really don't know what you've got until it's gone. Take a trip down memory lane with these 25 crafts that we all made in art class at least once.

1. First and foremost, we made this craft in every class

A masterpiece.

2. We all decorated our home with a few of these

Was anybody dumb enough to put an actual candle in one of them?

3. And this was how teachers distracted us for a few minutes

"Done already? Add another 10 links to yours then."

4. Every holiday season we brought home one of these

5. A papier mache...something

Your result varied based on your skill level...and your patience.

6. The classic egg carton caterpillar

7. Paper bag puppets

8. A painted birdhouse that no bird would be seen in

9. An origami creation

Which was probably flat by the time it got home in your backpack. Good luck remembering all those steps!

10. Clay ashtrays

Yours probably didn't look as good as this one, no offence.

11. Friendship bracelets

Kudos to you if you're still wearing one after all these years! And does anyone remember cereal bracelets?

Fun and edible.

12. Now listen while I paper plate tambourine...

Nothing sounded quite like a class full of second graders shaking these things.

My favorite craft is up next...

7 Things The "Bad Kids" In Your Class Always Did No Matter How Much The Teacher Yelled

As a former good-two-shoes, I can't pretend like I did any of those cool "bad" kid things, but I do remember seeing them all happen. Elementary school was basically a battle between the teachers and the students, and their weapons may not have been very advanced, but they were effective. A teacher could assign as much homework as they wanted, but as a kid, your attacks are limited. You don't have a lot of things you can do that will solidify your cool kid status without having you kicked out of school. It wasn't easy, but I guess some of


12 Normal Things 80s Kids Did At School That Just Aren't Allowed Anymore

Times sure have changed from the 80's. It seems as though everything has become dependent on technology and there's been a crazy increase in helicopter parenting. So what's changed in the school world? Can it really be that different? The answer is yes. Things have definitely gotten a little more strict and little less fun-loving since we were in grade school. And who knows? Maybe it's justified. But honestly it just seems like today's kids are missing out!Here are some totally normal things we'd do at school in the 80's but would not fly today. 1.

6 Things That Are So Nostalgic You Can Actually Taste It

It was always so hard to roll out of bed, get to school, and try to stay awake during morning classes. But there was always one thing keeping us going through the lessons and work: lunchtime. There would be trades around the classroom, sometimes someone would be nice enough to let people have a scoop of their Dunkaroos frosting, but if one thing is for certain, finding any of these items in our lunch would make any day better!LunchablesMemory GlandsThese were the bomb. What could be better than pizza, snacks, and dessert in a box? Being the chef to


20 Statements You Haven't Heard Since You Were A Kid That'll Flood Your Brain With Memories

Growing up, there are always phrases that are pretty specific to the time period. It's the same for every generation. There's always those statements that seem so relevant at the time, but looking back it feels ridiculous. Think about it, our parents didn't have flat screen TVs, a Nintendo, or the internet, those only became popular when we were kids. We are really lucky to have grown up in the time that we did, because we have gotten to experience the insanely fast technological advances that have been going on. Remember your first internet experience? You can probably still hear
