I liked the idea of Hand Talker as a activity to develop vocabulary for students. Super Duper sells several books with hand talkers (also known as ‘fortune tellers’ or ‘cootie catcher’). I decided to try making one myself and made a template with Creative Memories that I could add my own vocabulary and even sentences too. The students love them. I now have the template in Creative Memories and just change up the visuals and words based on themes or subject areas.

My first video …. I love crafts and for many reasons over the years it has been difficult to find a craft that my daughter could be successful at. Well we finally tweaked a craft that both of us can do together and enjoy!. Laura enjoys giving cards to families and friends and if you have a circuit, you can make sand cards that look fantastic! You just need to keep your design simple and kiss cut your design on label paper and glue onto a blank card. All Laura needs to do is peel and sprinkle and voila, beautiful cards! Take a look at the video and see what you think!
