The kids kind of remember the etch-a-sketch. I think there was one in the doctors waiting room for a while. But it’s really a flash back to an earlier generation. I had to explain why it was funny/ironic. They tried to understand a world without instant online access but it wasn’t easy.
The problem was that we don’t know anyone who actually has a ipad. I know someone who really wants one (HINT HINT) but that isn’t quite the same. But then I remembered that my sister-in-law was given a ‘promise photo’ of an ipad for her last birthday so that seemed good enough. It would have been easier to have the actual ipad to measure but I took the dimensions from the apple site so here’s hoping.
A few sheets of red felt, a bit of stitching and voila!
Fully lined to keep the precious ipad safe and snug … when it actually arrives that is. For now it is holding a pencil and paper – remember those.
