Wednesday: Creative Nanny: Making School Supplies Your Own

There's something so special about going out to buy school supplies.
When I was growing up, we got pencils, crayons, paper and a new ruler. In the 50's that was a big deal! These days, each class has a very specific list of supplies that they have to have for the school year. Add to that list a new backpack, a new lunch box, a water bottle, scissors, tape, markers, kleenex and cha ching!!!! It's easy to spend $75
When you have 2 or 3 kids that adds up pretty quickly so when you go out to shop, you often have to end up with the plain notebook instead of the really cool ones with the fun graphics.
A great end of summer project that I like to do with my now 10 year old charge, involves personalizing some of her school supplies.I sometimes just turn her loose in my office and let her scavenge through my craft stuff for what she wants. She likes to use my Cricut cutting machine and my Xyron sticker maker but for the sake of simplicity I am going to show you how anyone can do this project. Find out how at Creative Nanny

Oh, new school supplies does bring back good memories!
It sure is a sign of the times that I over heard a girl and her father going over her 3rd grade school supply list in Target the other day and she needed a flash drive. Yes, and sure enough they have them (small memory size) at Target in the bins right next to the markers and crayons and they were colorful and only $4.99. :)
