Works-For-Me Wednesday

Do you have trouble getting any kind of paperwork done with little ones climbing up your into your lap and trying to steal your pen? Well, I do. So I came up with this solution that has worked great in our house. I give my daughter her own important paperwork to fill out. I save a small amount of junk mail when it arrives (everyday, ugh!) and then I address it to my daughter and put it in my inbox. When it is time for me to attack my pile, I let my daughter fill out all her junk mail forms at the table next to me! I give her a special pen like mine. It works great, she feels important, and I love the serious look on her face that she gets trying to fill out the papers with her scribbles. So cute!

I do the same thing with my three yr. old. She loves to seal everything back up & play post office.

Cute idea for putting junk mail to use! This post would be a perfect one to link up to "Twice the Fun Tuesday" at my site havingfunathomeblog.blogspot.com.

Twice the Fun is a weekly mr. linky about creative recycling that will start next Tuesday (Oct 14.) It would be great to see your post there!
