Back to School is just around the corner. In fact, a teacher friend of mine posted the other day that the countdown was 21 days. Although I will not be teaching in a classroom this fall, I will admit that I have Back to School activities on my mind. It’s just a habit, I guess.
I blame my love for classroom decorations, school supplies, and the laminating machine. While I don’t have a classroom to decorate this year, I can always use a few more school supplies for our craft cabinet. As for my love of the laminating machine, I recently received the Fellowes’ Saturn2 95 so I won’t have to miss out on getting my laminating on!
Back to School Activities
Back to school is a busy time for the entire family, whether your kids are headed off to school or are still young enough to be at home or daycare. It’s a time to get prepared and organized no matter what kind of school the kids are headed back to. As a teacher, it was a time to get prepared for a brand new class.
This year, I’m have been looking for activities to keep W learning and having fun. How does a laminator come into play? It makes everything last so much longer!
That is definitely one of my favorite teacher tricks! Anything you want to last longer than a day should be laminated! Especially in a classroom or a home with toddlers!
If you’re looking for some easy to prep activities to do with your kids this fall, I have 5 of my favorites here. Of course, the possibilities are endless when it comes to laminating activity sheets and artwork!
My recent favorite activity W and I made are homemade letters and numbers puzzles. They are super easy to make and laminating them makes them last even longer. Next week I will share the step by step directions for making your own!

I’ve had a great experience with my Fellowes’ Saturn2 95 and know it will come in handy all over the house! It feaures HeatGuard™ Technology that keeps the heat inside the machine and means the machine is cool to the touch! It also has hot and cold laminating capabilities and a release lever that helps prevent jams! Loving it!
