Just a little something for school....

Hello, guys!

Well, my kindergartner came home with a paper plate and a note attached. It said for us to add a family photo to it and decorate around the picture. It also said that it was going to be an ornament for the classroom tree. I had a few ideas in my head and I pulled out some awesome SEI paper, turned my cricut on, and before I knew it this is what I had.



Now the problem is, do you think his teacher will think that it was a family project? Maybe I will let him stick a button or something on it and call it good.

Please tell me this has happened to another mother.....I am feeling a little guilty!

Have a great day!

Melanie, you are a hoot. That has no resemblance to a paper plate at all, lol. I hope you let him stick something on it. They shouldn't send paper plates home with the children of Cricut owners (and especially a designer like you). It is DANGEROUS but a beautiful ornament for the tree. Maybe you should buy another plate and let him design it and send yours as a Christmas present to the teacher. Just a thought.

I have done the same thing and somehow its gotten past the teacher. My daughter does help with most of the projects but since she is just as crafty as me there is usually no way to know she didnt do it herself.

I love it!!!! We all know that we are guilty of the same. Who wants to sit and let our cildren struggle with something that we can HELP them with and make much better. Great work.

You are not alone, we all tend to try to help our children as much as we can!! Love the plate, and I'm sure he was very proud of it too!

Hehehe..know the feeling, but you can bet as he get's older, his creative input will increase if he is anything like my DD. We have had a blast making gifts and goodies for friends, and teachers. In fact she did 9 cocoa holders for all her teachers and counselors! They all love them.

Oh and nothing wrong with a button, all projects need a button!

Thanks Melanie for the "guilty crafty Mom" giggle!

Cheers!

Don't feel guilty . . . you have just embarked on the beginnings of "helping" your child in school. When mine started middle school, the moms used to get together and ask, "What grade did you get on the science fair project?" lol Teachers know (I can speak with authority on this one) that parents help kids with projects when projects go home. You did a great job with HIS ornament! He's lucky to have a mom like you.
