A Project for the Kiddos & A Winner

Thursday, August 1, 2013


Summer is still sizzling. I've got a fun indoor project for your kiddos today. It involves a bit of recycling too. All those brown paper bags that you have lying around will come in handy for this one.

Since I'm a teacher, I love to suggest fun activities that will help children retain their academic skills during the lazy days of summer. This project will serve as double duty for your children.

First, it will allow them to practice their handwriting. Secondly, it will allow them to unplug from electronic devices and send sweet handwritten note to friends and relatives living far away.

And here's a sweet thought...{I would imagine that every Nana & Papa would love to get a sweet note from the kiddos}.

 
GCD Studios "Special Delivery" collection is the perfect choice for this project. Just take a look at the smiling mailman on the paper. I just love that image. The text on the paperclip adds a great added touch too!
 
Keeping all of the notes, pencils, and envelopes in decorated paper bags will help your kiddos stay organized too.
 
Now for the SRM Stickers Giveaway Winner! I'm so sorry for the delay. I'm working an academic camp at school and the week has been hectic.
 
And the winner is....
Jessica
