I can not believe how fast summer is flying by! In just one month my little guy will be headed off to Kindergarten, oh my! That means our family time with Daddy will come to an end as well (since he’s a teacher). In preparation of back to school, we’ve teamed up with Fellowes to create some awesome project ideas.
First, let me introduce you to Fellowes Saturn2 95 laminator. This is seriously the coolest gadget!! I love how easy it is to use, and the finished product looks amazing.
Fellowes’ Saturn2 95 laminator is the ultimate tool for back-to-school because it helps preserve important documents like schedules, calendars, flash cards, charts, certificates, classroom decorations and more.
There are hundreds of ways to use this cool gadget including worksheets, flashcards, and charts for teachers and homeschooling parents. Plus it’s perfect at home for craft projects, photos, and holiday memorabilia. By clicking any of those links it will bring you directly to Fellowes idea center where you can print out pre-made sheets, then laminate them.
I decided to have my little guy create some flash cards of key words he’ll need to know by end of Kindergarten. I then laminated, cut and clipped them together for easy use.
I also laminated several of his pre-k papers that I had been holding onto. I knew I wanted to do something creative with them, and after getting the Fellowes laminator, it clicked! I could preserve these precious moments for years to come.
The process was simple. The Fellowes Saturn2 95 includes a 10 pack of 3mil letter laminating pouches to get me started. I placed my son’s school artwork into the sleeve, then fed it through the laminator. In less than 1 minute I had a beautifully finished product that is durable, and water-resistant!
The Saturn2 95 is the perfect machine for moms and teachers because it combines exclusive technologies and features:
- HeatGuard™ Technology: Double-walled insulation keeps heat inside so laminator is comfortable to touch, making it safe for homes and classrooms with children
- Advanced Temperature Control: Hot and cold laminating capabilities ensure consistent, smooth results every time
- Release Lever: Permits easy removal or re-centering of stalled pouches to prevent jams
Here’s a great idea for teachers, laminate diplomas or end of the year awards for parents as keepsakes.
Fellowes offers a wide range of laminators to suit a variety of needs. You can find their products at Wal-Mart and Amazon.com as well. I can not recommend the Fellowes Saturn2 95 laminator enough. It’s an amazing product that anyone could find use for. Check out my back to school pinterest board for even more ideas!
