We made a placemat!

I got a laminating machine for $20 last time I was at Costco.  I had wanted one for a while, but Todd was against the extra plastic it would use.  I convinced him it was for the greater good of the children and their activities.

Today I needed a quick activity after rest time and before dinner.  As I was walking down the stairs with the girls I saw the laminator in the office and the idea was formed.  We will make placemats for dinner!

Clearly amazed at the power the laminator holds!

I love the fun and creative things we'll do and make with this fancy new machine!
