Kids Involvement Network

I was a recent guest for the KIN (Kids Involvement Network) at Steubing Ranch Elementary School for one of their after-school programs.  I was invited to tell the students what I do for a living and to explain how that works in an effort to educate children on the many varied professions in our community. 

As an Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator and owner of my Sweet Stamper business, how could I talk about what I do without showing them and then engaging them in the creative process?!  I took my samples board, demonstrated how to make a hand-stamped card, and then turned them loose with bookmark supplies.  Each student made two bookmarks--one to keep and one to give away.  Even with minimal supplies, the students got creative and put their own "stamp" (no pun intended:) on their bookmarks.  Recipe for fun:  kids+stamps+ink+paper!

Since the group was the Kids Involvement Network, I made sure to involve the kids in my presentation, and they came through beautifully!
