Great idea for Home-schooling moms.

So, I just came up with a great idea on how to use all my free magazines I am getting from free subscriptions. I get Babytalk, Parents, and Parenting the Early Years, which means lots of pictures of things related to kids! I am home-schooling my two oldest boys (4 and 2 1/2) and just last we started something new. Each week we study a new "Letter of the Week" and now we go through my magazines that are stacking up (I don't have time to read all of them!), and find pictures that begin with the letter we are studying. Then my oldest and I will cut out the pictures (his scissor skills are outstanding) and the youngest will paste them on a piece of paper. Then we review all the pictures and show is to Daddy. Its very fun, creative, skill building, and puts all those magazines to good use. My favorite from today was a "Dirty Daddy" (bonus, 2 "D" words)!!!
