So, this is how it went...
Help your child make five holiday cards to be sent to a nursing home.
Hmm. I can use the cricut to make some trees. Michael can glue them to some construction paper and then glue on some ornaments and color it and we'll be done.
- Well, if I'm getting the cricut out anyway, I might as well cut the cards out of cardstock and matching envelopes. (This step didn't go smoothly, and took much longer than intended.)
- Oooh, I have some pretty glittery cardstock. I'll cut the ornaments out of cardstock too.
- And look! I can print a pretty phrase too! (Joy)
Seriously, by the time all that was done, my poor husband had put the children to bed by himself.
And now I have a big pile of card components to assemble with the children today and they'll still just color all over them.
