Pencil Eraser Men



My oldest has been having a rough time with the easy subtraction so I asked my husband if he had any advice on how to help him out. His response: "That might not be such a good idea.When my mom talked to me the only thing I did was to pull off the erasers on the pencils and make them into army men and fight." Oh dear.




CAS-ual Fridays Challenge is as easy as 1-2-3 this week! Create a project featuring a patterned, an image and a sentiment! The wonderful sponsor is Clear and Simple Stamps, whose cool stamps I featured on my project today!


Please check out the CAS-ual Fridays Blog for challenge details and rules, more info on the sponsor and some great Clear and Simple eye candy from the Girl Fridays!

  20. Ha! Have you decided to try bribing the teacher??? That card just may do it, especially if there is a gift card i side. :>)
    Try counting up on the subtraction using fingers to get the answer. At least counting up is the way where I live vs counting down.
