Coolest Flashlight Ever and a Giveaway

LEGO-Flashlight

THE coolest flashlight ever. Right? Look at those teeny tiny LEGO minifigures, cut out with precision with the Silhouette CAMEO. This is just a plain black cardstock circle, measured to fit inside your favorite flashlight. Using the CAMEO, I cut out 9 little LEGO men within the circle. We have also done this with stars, letters in my son’s name, and swirls.

Silhouette America offers a very special educator discount and I’d like to encourage you to go look around their website and sign up for this opportunity.

And now for a giveaway! Enter below to win a pack of clear sticker paper and a pack of white sticker paper.

Word of the Day Mug

word-of-the-day-mug

I love mugs. My 2 favorite mugs are an oversized Winnie the Pooh mug and a Star Trek transporter mug that “magically” transports the crew members when you pour in a hot liquid. When I bought my Silhouette CAMEO, one of the first things I did was run out to Old Time Pottery and stock up on mugs and glassware.

This mug belongs to my son. It is his word-of-the-day mug. It is a delicious way to introduce new vocabulary words!  The little book is cut from black vinyl. Did you know that vinyl is very similar to a chalkboard. It actually wipes off cleaner than a chalkboard!

Greek, Egyptian and More

Greek-Amy

That above is my name in Greek. I took a picture of the black piece of paper after I removed the letters, because I wanted you to see an up-close picture of how crisp and clean the CAMEO cuts.

Greek-Amy-2

Here are the punched out letters. We have made dozens of Greek letters in all different sizes and colors. This has not only helped us learn the actual letters, but we create fun games with them like spelling entire sentences, and recreating English words in Greek to see if we can pronounce them. Since we are deep into studying ancient Greece right now, we also use these letters to memorize the spelling of famous figures in ancient Greece.

Hieroglyphs

You can also do all that I mentioned above with any language, such as Egyptian hieroglyphs. That was a ton of fun! I am sure you can imagine the myriad of activities you can do with a set of sturdy cardstock hieroglyphs.
