I’m a bit amazed that we’ve become a family that uses different electronic devices in our homeschool. We use both the iPad and the Kindle for reading and doing Bible copywork. When I saw my daughter doing her Bible copywork off of the Kindle, flat on the table, I knew I had to find a better solution for her. It’d be better if the Kindle could be propped up. Not wanting to spend a bundle for a stand, I looked around on the internet and found a blogger using a Nite-Ize GearTie for his smart phone. These gear ties are simply rubber twisties that can be bent to different shapes. I knew this was definitely a winner so I sent my hubby to Home Depot. Seriously, I get lost in that store. My brain just shuts down seeing all the home improvement assortments. After spending about $4.50 for a pack of 18″ rubber twist ties, we have ourselves a Kindle stand!
For fun, I put my iPad on it and while it works, it’s a bit wobbly. A 24″ tie would work better.
The tie also works wonderfully for a smart phone.
