Creatively Capture Favourite #SpringBreak Memories with #FunWithHP

We are half way through March Break and my kids are getting bored. we have went on a few road trips but both times the iPad was dead and they were forced to look outside and enjoy the ride. Well I am being a bit sarcastic  They did enjoy signing along to the Hits on our car radio. I now have a plan for future rides. I just printed off a bunch of “S” pics for my 4 year old to use. She recently saw a Speech Pathologist and we are working on the “S” sound. I figured if we are stuck in the car for a while it is the perfect time to do this.

I just got a really cool printer shipped to me and it was just right for the job. The HP Photosmart 7520 e-All-in-One printer allows me to print form my lap top, smartphone and any other device we have in the house. Its picture quality has my kids making copies of their school pictures and art work to send to family and friends all around the world. Not only is it a printer, it is a scanner too.


My 12 year old right away started discovering the apps and printed off lined paper and calendars. He also has plans for some graphs and crossword puzzles. I wanted to get the “S” words. We are driving to Toronto and I knew they would be perfect for DD and the long drive.

s papers

Now I am taping these to cardboard and we will use them tomorrow in the car. I am excited to have the time to do her “homework” I know she is going to love the “S” words. Snake, Scissors, Shoe,Stool, snacks, Santa, star and Sail. I was able to get a variety of sound combinations and the pictures are very colourful and brighter than my camera is showing. These are on regular printer paper. Next we are going to make place-mats out of her art work she painted at school. I am going to pint on photo paper and laminate. Very excited about this.

Along with this printer I got a pack of Everyday Photo paper from hp and a small pack of hp Advanced photo paper. Having kids in all levels of school and a home business this is the best piece of equipment I could possibly have here. Set up was fast and easy as was connecting our devices.
