So we are in the home stretch of summer vacation [only 3 more weeks to go!] and while I have loved doing and seeing new things around San Diego with the hub and kiddos, there have been days that I just want to rip my hair out! Sound familiar? I have tried to force, I mean gently persuade my 6 year old to keep up with her writing and reading, but she is quite the stubborn one. [I have no idea where she gets that from]. So I put my vintage Rotex label maker [any of you out there remember these or am I dating myself?] to good use and made a bunch of word magnets for the fridge. I figured it’s a fun way for her to “write” and be creative.
Of course you can use any kind of label maker for this project. I love my Rotex that I recently purchased off eBay. I put it to use to create these.
To start, I typed out 25 common pronouns. Boy, it’s been waaaay too long since I thought about what the heck a pronoun is! Embarrassing. I used this website as my guide.
The label tape has a sticky back and of course the magnet tape does as well so these magnets should last at least until the end of this upcoming school year [she said a bit sarcastically].
I typed out my kids’ names and they loved that. My 4 year old boy wanted me to make a “fart” magnet. ”That’s a verb, right Mama?” Technically it’s a noun, but that’s ok. Ahhh….boys!
This little project took all of 15 minutes and my kids have been busy little bees making sentences. I hope their new teachers are seeing this post!
