Nursery school blues



It's your toddler's first day at school and you are worried that he may have separation anxiety during the first day.


Gather up your photos of family members and pets and stick them to cards made from scrapbooking paper. Have them laminated, or cover them with decifix, and then cut them to the same size. Punch a hole through one corner and feed a key ring through the cards. Hook the stack onto his school bag before setting off for the day.


Add an educational element to the cards by simply sticking cutouts of numbers or letters to the reverse side.

Scrapbooking stores are good outlets for alphabetical cutouts and stickers.
