Well, today is technically (we homeschool so it’s not a date that’s set in stone or anything) our first day of school. That time of year when I think to myself of all the stuff I could get done if I sent them off to ‘real’ school during the day…all day…every day….for 9 months…
So since we were getting back to schoolwork everyday the kids needed some new notebooks and folders. Of course they wanted the fancy ones with pictures and designs on that cost twice as much as the plain ones. I said no.
So we bought the cheap ones and decorated them ourselves over the weekend.
We broke out the modge podge, old magazines some old photos and the cars and princess wrapping paper (that you’ll recognize from some of our other projects like the tissue boxes because they just love cars and princesses). It didn’t take long, and didn’t get too messy, and now they’re thrilled to have their own personal notebooks and folders to start the new year. And I’m happy it was cheap and we recycled some old stuff that was laying around the house.
