Going Hybrid

I haven't created a whole lot of layouts lately; instead I've been using my digital scrapbooking supplies to make some fun things for my kids. First off were these money banks:

I wanted to help them learn about saving, spending, and paying tithing to our church. I bought these cheap little plastic containers and custom made the labels for them. I just cut them out and adhered them using a little Mod Podge. I think they turned out pretty cute! Here's what each file looked like before printing, it was easy to simply change the text and the little animal in photoshop.

I also made them chore charts. I am amazed at how much they love these! I wonder how long that will last... I probably just jinxed it, but they love to mark off their jobs each day. I used the Happy Helpers kit from GG Digital Designs, along with a few other random elements to create these. I just printed them, had them laminated, and attached a dry erase marker using sticky velcro.

Here's a closer look:

And finally, our summer fun list. At the beginning of the summer we sat down as a family and wrote down some of the fun things we wanted to do this summer. Originally it was just a sheet of notebook paper stuck on the fridge, so I decided to make it a little prettier. :) Again, I had it laminated so that the kids could check off the activities as we do them.
