One of my favorite things about digital scrapbooking is being able to take my supplies and put them to good use…in things other than digital scrapbooking. I’ve used supplies from everything from card making, to banners for my husband’s school, to invitations, to bedspreads and canvases. Yep, the versatility of my scrap stash is unending.
Over the past three years as our family has ventured into the world of homeschooling, my digi supplies have once again come to the rescue. Especially for my little ones, scrapping supplies cialis express delivery offer so many great opportunities for learning games and activities. Because of the nature of many kits — cute and kid friendly — the jump to learning activities is an easy one. Here is just a small sample of things we have made over the years.

As you can see, there are so many things that you can make. Even you aren’t homeschooling, there are lots of fun activities that you can make for your children to do during the summer, on the weekend, or any other time. I love that I can take some of my favorite elements, size them according to what I need, print, and then PLAY!
A few tips:
1. Obviously some kits/designers are better suited for learning activities than others. Look for designers whose elements are bright, happy, and kid friendly. If you can’t tell, Kate Hadfield is my favorite go-to source.
2. To help your activities last longer, laminate them.
3. Once laminated, you can use wet erase markers for all sorts of fun activities.
4. If you don’t want to go to the trouble of creating the activities yourself, some designers (such as Heather Roselli) make pre-made templates and cut-outs for learning activities.
5. A quick search on Pinterest for “preschool learning” will yield lots of fun ideas that can be adapted for your stash of digi products!
