Did you know that it’s way cheaper to print out activities for your kids rather than buying materials? You just have to let your creative juices flow to have a perfect DIY for any school project. I do this with my kids now and bonding time has never been this exciting! Plus, I get to save more money because as you well know, with DIY, you can use the stuff at home to replace expensive materials bought in bookstores or craft shops.

I learned a lot when I attended the recent Canon PIXMommy Weekend. It was about putting ideas together, made it into projects and used Canon’s newest PIXMA E470 and E410 printers which made them come to life.

There were series of mini workshops and you bet I enjoyed them all especially the one where I got to express myself in doodles hahaha. I used to do a lot of doodling when I was younger to pass time and to decorate my notebooks or room. Now, I’m teaching my kids to be creative and do the same for their respective rooms.

This was what I have created in a hurry, then it was printed using the Canon PIXMA E Series printer. Lovely isn’t it, but I could have done better with more time on my hands. I can just peel it off and use it as a case for my mobile phone and add a short string or as is as a decor in one of my treasured boxes of knick-knacks.

As for me, I have two boys who are homeschooled and you bet, we need to print tons for their educational materials and so far, my Canon PIXMA is a huge help! I’ve used several others but the cost of ink refill is not as affordable, so, I’m happier and contented. I found my perfect printer!
