Keep the Fun Going After School.
They will love it.
The transition of back to school isn’t just for us, the grown-ups. Our kids are the ones that are thrown into a whirlwind of old, new and exciting environments. Going from a more relaxed two months at home to full-time learning can be taxing. HP Canada has helped me stay organized and get meals covered by using their 7-Day Menu Planner but, what happens when the kids come home from school?
For Their Entertainment.
With the HP ENVY 5530 e-All-in-One Printer and HP Printables, you have everything you need at your finger tips. That includes keeping your kids entertained while they freshen up and hone their language, eye-and-hand co-ordination and more. I simply used the touchscreen and in just a few clicks, I printed out coloring pages and puzzles for the girls to keep busy with while I cooked their dinner.
Sometimes it’s hard for kids to get into the back-to-school groove. And while combining flash cards and swimming could be fun, combining DreamWorks Animation activity and coloring pages with Education.com’s stimulating educational print outs might be easier. Keep the summer fun rolling with coloring and crafts, while also helping the kids brush up on multiplication and division problems.
Highlights offers Fun with a Purpose printables, they will provide hours of stimulating puzzle activities to get their gears turning. Disney printables are sure to appeal to the Disney movie adorer with fun coloring pages, crafts, games, cards, special features and more. While the Dreamworks enthusiast will love all of the activities they offer starring characters from their favorite movies like Shrek, Kung Fu Panda, The Croods and Turbo! Count on wholesome entertainment for kids with HP Printables that are more interactive than digital screens.
Get Their Groove Back.
The girls are doing just that while they enjoy fun activities at home. I know that before, I would spend quite a lot of time online just searching for free printables to keep the girls having fun while doing something that keeps their little minds learning or honing their skills. Now, I just can find them right on my printer. Their favorites from Disney and Dreamworks, right for the taking.
Gabby chose a crossword puzzle from Dreamworks ‘How to Train a Dragon 2’ and she loved it. I watched her light up and quickly begin to find words immediately. Mimi wanted to color of course and she chose Peabody & Sherman, one of her favorites. I’m happy to see her color because it helps her master her dexterity. So, turn off the TV, put away the devices and have fun together!
Are You Ready?
Your HP Printables are ready when you are. Print them right away or choose daily or weekly delivery, so you can get the latest items waiting at your printer in the morning, after work or anytime. Setting up my home computer, laptop and devices to be able to send jobs to my printer from anywhere is incredibly easy. I love that they have HP Printables mobile app that literally puts so much power in the palm of your hand. The ability to send a recipe or activity from your iPhone is amazing! Get yours, here.
How do you keep your kids busy after school?
Let me know, til then–cheers m’deres!
