Do your kids love scavenger hunts? Which of these will you be printing first?
Want to make sure you never run out of ink?
HP Instant Ink is my sanity saver for this! A few months ago I shared in another sponsored post how HP made printing easier for us. Since then we’ve had fun printing some new Christmas printables, our own DIY valentines, and more. The Instant Ink Program from HP has been a huge help. Just before I run out of ink a new cartridge arrives, so I’m never scrambling to get ink when I have something new to print. It’s been great!
