I love using my at home laminating machine to laminate printables. That way you can use them again and again!
Solving the same word scramble multiple times might sound weird to you as an adult, but children love doing the same activity multiple times. Even if your kids don’t do the puzzle twice in one day, you can save it for the next snow day or even next year.
Dry erase pockets are a good alternative to lamination as long as your kids actually keep the printables in the pouch! Dry erase pockets are basically super strength page protectors. They’re an easy way to make printables reusable!
