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!
