Day 17: Fun with Photos

image from

What kid doesn’t love to see pictures of himself? Just wait until you see the smiles when you trap your little ones in the soap container! Pinned on pinterest, this idea is simple and basically cost-free. Snap a photo, glue to white paper, trim around image. Then, photocopy onto laminating paper (less than $1.00 at your local office store) and trim again. Then, roll to fit into a soap container with clear liquid soap, and you’ve got a personalized bathroom gadget that will help them remember to wash their hands!

If your child likes to build tall, tall towers and dinosaur caves, make the most of those building blocks by attaching family photos with modgepodge. This will help your child remember their extended family members, even if they’re miles away. Find detailed instructions at lemontreecreations or just wing it. It’s a can’t fail project.

And how cute is this? Perfect for pre-readers who struggle with traditional gift tags, photos attached to presents will bring nothing but joy when it’s present time at your house!
