Magazine Magic

May

My Cousin is visiting for a month. He is 18 and I am …..well…… a lot older !

But during the day the kids are at school and he keeps me company. Last week I was cleaning up and had a pile of old magazines to toss out.

Yes – I know you have them too….. LOADS of them…. right?

We sat at the table and started paging through them….. then cutting and clipping and chatting….. and got CREATIVE !!

Create and Communicate

And before we knew…we spent all morning communicating while creating. Magazines actually make great conversation starters – spotting advertisements and articles brings up so many topics that you bridge the gap between generations in no time at all.

The best part of it, was the fun tags I then made while we were catching up.

Modge podge and a ribbon and voila !!! Gone was the boring old yellow tags that I bought in the stationery store.

Next time you want to have great conversations…. grab some magazines and CREATE and COMMUNICATE !

I am sure it will work the magic with your kids too!!

A fun way to spend the day. Especially those rainy ones.
