Office Supplies. The Best Birthday Presents for Kids.
Okay. Maybe this might not be true for all kids. But, most of them LOVE post-its, right?
Pens, note-pads, return address labels, business cards. All cool stuff.
Recently, I created a Mail Center for my soon-to-be three year old. She's really been into envelopes and making cards. So I created a whole box just for her.
It has everything she would need to mail off a card. I had some return address labels made that she puts on EVERYTHING.
She spends probably two hours each day working on her cards. It's definitely worth the headache of organizing all the cards, stickers and pieces of paper strewn around the house every night.
Today, her business cards arrived.
Yes, I ordered business cards for a three year old.
She has spent hours playing with my Mother's business cards. So, I figured a card with her photo on it, would be tons of fun.
I was right.
She refused to let go of them today, when we went to the playground. She ran around, climbing things and sliding down the slides, all the while clutching a stack of business cards.
It's gratifying to see something that cost so little money (and took such little effort) could bring such Joy to my daughter.
There have definitely been several projects that took A LOT of effort and time on my part, which she played with it for a grand total of five minutes.
I am going to bed one Happy Mama.
I wonder how long it would take her to start handing out her cards.
