Kindergarten "I Voted!" Buttons
After my printer decided that my original kindergarten "I Voted" button (above) was too color-rich, I decided to make the buttons using a bit of what I had at home:
* patriotic scrapbook paper
* flag stickers
* large circle paper punch
* paper cutter, scissors, pinking shears, and glue
* tabletop laminator
...and some goodies that necessitated a quick trip to Walmart:
* laminating pouches
* adhesive-backed pins
You already know how I love to laminate (it's a teacher thing):
The adhesive pin backs prevented me from burning the tips of my fingers...since I usually use a hot glue gun:
Now they just need to be cut out, and the kindergartners need to vote on Election Tuesday (they're voting for their favorite story, favorite song, and favorite school lunch):
Just in case you're interested in trying these, I made 70+ pins (there are four kindergarten classrooms at my school) in less than an hour.
