Since I recently dipped my toe into the SAHM waters, I am constantly searching for activities to keep my toddler entertained/busy. After having a new baby, the thought of a bored toddler was terrifying! I found so many activities that required a laminator. I just kept thinking, “Who has a laminator?!”
Seemed like overkill at first, but when I found one that was only $20, I decided it was worth a try. Full disclosure, you’ll want to buy these laminating sheets to go with it, too (an additional $12).
When it arrived, I immediately jumped over to Pinterest for inspiration. Obviously I will be sharing my ideas here, so I’ll keep you posted on all things laminated.
Here are some ideas I have planned:
• weekly toddler calendar
• laminated coloring sheets that you can wipe clean between uses
• preserving Harris’s (and soon baby Lee’s!) art work
• play dough mats
• kid-friendly holiday placemats
• weekly menu planning
But first, I wanted to show you how easy it is and why you’ll likely see everything in my house laminated in the near future.
Let me know what your favorite laminator project is! I’m always looking for fun new things to try.
