A Great Use for Holiday Cards {Coffee & a Clever Idea}


OK So this post isn't exactly a Clever Idea for your classroom, but let's be honest...when your this close to a school vacation your mind isn't exactly focused on the classroom anyhow. And this idea was far too fabulous not to share with y'all. 

I love, love, love when the Christmas cards start filling my mailbox. Even now when my friends' kids are plastered all over Facebook on a daily basis, I still heart seeing their adorable little mugs come out of a festive envelope. I love hanging the cards on the wall to stare at all month. I don't love taking them down. But, let's be honest it would seem odd to leave Christmas cards out all year.

That is why I find this idea to be brilliant. 

Use your phone to snap a pic of the pic and then use it with the sender's contact info. Then you can enjoy the cuteness all year long.

Join me each weekday morning for coffee & a clever idea.

  4. This is a great idea! I'll have to remember it for next year. It's great for birth announcements with family pictures too!
