A Kindle Advent - A Readers Dream!




Hey all,

Welcome back!



Day 4 is all about Jack but can easily be adapted to any reader - The Kindle Advent.

This one is actually the one I love most, only because Jack is the hardest kid to buy for.

As an avid reader I wanted to give him the one thing he would want more than anything, a book a day, and thanks to Amazon and their freebies I only paid for a couple and they were less than a dollar. 

Want to make one for the reader in your life?

Supplies:

MDF Board
Black Paint
Paper
Circle punch
Vinyl - if you don't have a cutter you could paint this

Paint the board black, the pictures are not great the house was dark yesterday due to a freaky thunderstorm.


Cut (or paint) your screen, originally I was going to have Merry Christmas Jack running like sentences in a book, but then realized the weeding would take me forever.





Jump on Amazon and choose your books, I printed them on to 2 inch circles


 Then punched them out and also punched out grey ones to make the kindle buttons


 Stuck them together, placed them on the board and she was done. Each night I will have the books delivered to his kindle.  Again, sorry about the pictures.



Thanks for coming to see another installment of



If you missed them we have:

      Tween girl jewelry advent                    15 min baby advent                 Toddler Advent



Thanks for reading,

  4. Awww! Yeah, I can imagine how running like sentences in a book would be...painful. Either way, it is an awesome advent calendar that anyone would be lucky to have, and so creative too (bonus!) While I love paper books, Kindles are also super convenient. Plus one-paper-book-a-day would be non eco friendly and also something that would lead to a disastrously messy room... books would be everywhere! Love it!
