Colorforms hack: use paper punches to make new shapes out of the extra vinyl
Melissa's squeezing as much fun as possible out of her son's new box of Colorforms:
I recently purchased the 50th anniversary edition of Colorforms for my son, thanks to your recommendation of the Amazon Friday Deal. Thanks! We opened it up and I realized there is a lot of extra vinyl around those die cut shapes. So I took the extra vinyl and used my paper punches to make additional shapes. I made stars (which my son used to make constellations!), flowers, hearts, and squares. He had a blast with the new shapes and I didn't feel so bad about throwing away all that waste!
