I LOVE my Cricut!

Apples and Buses for patterning and sorting
I have to admit, I am not a "crafty" person. I used to scrapbook, but I don't anymore.  I am creative, but not artistic. I got a Cricut for Christmas and I've played with it here and there, but have not spent much time with it.  The last couple of days I have been spending way too much time with my Cricut!  I have a cartridge called Doodlecharms and it has all sorts of fabulous things on it.  My Kinder team talked about purchasing some small Ellison die cuts with small apples, leaves, teddy bears etc... that we can cut out for patterns, sorting and such.  But my Cricut can do that!  And so much easier!  Here are some pictures of things I made all with that Doodlecharms cartridge.  I am so excited about them.  I am meeting with my team on Monday and it's just a social, get to know our two new members thing, but I am going to have to bring my cute stuff to show them!!

Sorry I don't know how to change the orientation
Popscicles with capital and lower cases letters for matching
A teddy bear counting game
Chicka Chicka Boom Boom math game
I made some Teddy Bear cards that you can use. They have numbers 1-10 and teddy bears 1-10. Here's the link-Teddy Bear cards
I also have the Chicka Chicka cards too with numbers and tally marks. Here's the link- Chicka Chicka Cards I know it doesn't really helps if you don't have the bus or palm tree, but you might find a use for them or be able to recreate the game in other ways.
If anyone out there has a Cricut, what have you made for school with it?  AND, what other cartridges do I need to buy???
