How to Make a Superhero Comic Strip Invitation with your iPhone or iPad

Y’all, I totally amazed myself with this one. While I’m crafty, I can’t get over how awesome Jonah’s Superhero Comic Strip Birthday Invitations turned out using a comic strip app on my iPhone.

Letter Hunt {Printable}

Oviparous Animals Printables

Spring is the perfect time to talk about eggs and oviparous animals! What’s that you say? Ovipa-what?!? Vocabulary word for the day: Oviparous, which means egg-laying.
