This whiz-bang “Apple Peeler Corer” kitchen accessory did more for my kids’ snacks than save me prep time. It got them excited to make (and devour) their own Apple Slinky.™

Today’s reminder: You don’t need fancy camera setups to enjoy making images.
(Are you reading this on the last device you used to snap an image, or is that device within arm’s reach? Precisely.)

This winter I picked up an Instax instant film camera and it quickly became the Apple Slinky of picture taking among my minions. Sure they can all snap on phones and tablets but seeing a photo appear and holding a print in seconds is pure magic.
