Day 7 of Crafting to Christmas


On Day 7 of Crafting to Christmas we took it pretty easy. We spent most of the day out shopping with friends. Once we got home we ordered pizza for dinner and enjoyed watching Cinderella and Doc McStuffins Holiday special. After that we just pretty much laid around relaxing. Me surfing the internet between my favorite sites and Virginia playing on the Ipad. Before I knew it it was time for Virginia to head to bed.

About a few minutes before time for me to go to bed I thought of a great idea. Virginia has been really enjoying a few memory games on the Ipad. So I thought how much fun would it be to make her a Christmas memory game. So I did a quick search on Pinterest and found a perfect set from Modern Homemakers. I love the illustrations and how they are simple and images that Virginia can relate too. I printed the printables out real quick that were provided. I quickly realized my ink is low, BOO!

But they printed just not at the best quality. So I plan to still play with Virginia tomorrow morning. But I plan to print the sheets again once I replace the ink. Then run them though my laminating machine so they will hold up better and we can enjoy them again next year.

Update: So we played this morning and she loved the set. It only took me a few minutes to cut the cards out and I let her lay them face down in rows. Virginia was very excited that she beat me the first round. I believe she has inherited just a little bit of the Ford competitive side.
