I know that school has started for many kids already. Mine go back to school in just one week! It’s crunch time for school clothes, supplies and getting organized in general. This year, there has been one incredibly helpful tool that stands out for our family: the Fellowes Saturn2 95 Laminator!
My first project was a Daily Chore Chart to give my younger kids an idea of what chores they will do to help out. I wanted to make it interactive and fun for them too. Anything that helps improve morale is a good idea, right? I unpacked the sleek, light-weight and compact piece of machinery and got to work on our chore chart!
Make a Chore Chart with Fellowes Saturn2 95 Laminator:
I gathered supplies: coordinating papers, a paper cutter or scissors, my printer, a 1 3/4″ hole punch, adhesive, hot glue gun, velcro and the Fellowes laminator and laminating pouches. I printed “Chore Chart” and the initials out using the paper cutter and punched the kid friendly jobs out. Using the adhesive, I attached the title and rectangles with the initials to the background sheet of paper. Then I sent this and the paper punches through the laminator to keep them sturdy and in good shape even after many uses.
Attach the velcro to the chore chart and the chore circles and you are ready to go!
I am so impressed with the Fellowes Saturn2 95 Laminator! I was able to laminate the multi-layered papers without a hitch! It was quick and so easy to use. I plugged it in and waited until the “wait” symbol stopped flashing and a nice little alert beep sounded. It did not get hot to the touch-which I especially appreciate as a mom of kids that end up touching everything! The finished pieces are sealed wonderfully-they look professionally laminated!
- The HeatGuard™ Technology: Double-walled insulation keeps heat inside so laminator is comfortable to touch, making it safe for homes with children.
- Advanced Temperature Control: Hot and cold laminating capabilities ensure consistent, smooth results every time.
- Jam Release Lever: Permits easy removal or re-centering of stalled pouches.
There are so many other fun ideas that I have planned! Educational products: Flash Cards, Map Worksheets and Word Searches are available for download at the Fellowes Idea Center– how easy, right?! You can also find fun Ideas for the Home too: Meal Planners and even holiday projects too!
I’m also going to laminate important keepsakes, such as: report cards and certificates, so we can enjoy them for years to come!
