My nephew's birthday was this weekend and my son wanted desperately to get him a "really cool" gift. We don't usually spend a lot of money on gifts between the cousins -actually they have mostly just make cards for each other. So I didn't want to go shopping and spend a lot, plus Carter informed me that he wanted to get him a present the morning of the birthday supper/party.
So, we broke in my new laminator and made him a special DINOSAUR version of Go Fish. It was a super quick, easy project -SCORE! We went on to Google Images and typed in Dinosaur Cartoons. Then Carter helped me pick out which pictures he liked. I saved them to my computer and then inserted them into a Word document so I could resize them -and make duplicates of each picture so they had a MATCH.
Laminate.... and sit there in awe of my new "toy". Funny how laminating seems fun now. LOL
Carter and I played it a couple times to try it out and he loved it. Hopefully his cousin will like playing it too.
And then I had to make a PRINCESS version for Chloe too! This laminator has gotten a lot of use already in its short life! I've also been working on some things for Sharing Time and Singing Time for Primary at church. I'll show those later.
