Vacation Bible School

I’ve been making VBS (Vacation Bible Schools) printables for the past several years.  I do it especially for a lady that’s in one of my Y!Groups.  I think I’ve only missed one year, and I just go too busy and ran out of time.   I believe that was last year for 2013.  I’m once again working on stuff for this year!! 

vbs-children

This is a list of all the posts that I’ve done for my VBS printables.  They’re all related to LifeWay VBS themes.  Here are all the VBS posts….

Round Up for VBS with the Saddle Ridge Ranch theme

VBS:  NYC – Big Apple Adventure with the Big Apple Adventure theme

V.B.S. – Amazing Wonders Aviation with the Amazing Wonders Aviation theme

V.B.S. – More Amazing Wonders Aviation with the Amazing Wonders Aviation theme

I’m also working on the Agency D3 theme for this year.  I’m hoping to have them uploaded and posted very soon.  I’m happy with how they’ve come so far and can’t wait to make them available to my group member….and all of you, my readers.

Spring Break

It’s time for….

spring-break-logoat our little homeschool, religious education, and here at The Schoolhouse!!

Since there’s no class this week, I don’t have a new page for the Bible ABC’s to post and I’m just going to take a break to enjoy some quality family time.  I’ll return next week and hopefully have some great new ideas that I can turn into printables to share!!


Merry CHRISTmas!!

Merry-Christmas-Nativity

Joseph also went up from Galilee, from the city of Nazareth, to Judea, to the city of David which is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and family of David, in order to register along with Mary, who was engaged to him, and was with child. While they were there, the days were completed for her to give birth. And she gave birth to her firstborn son; and she wrapped Him in cloths, and laid Him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.

~Luke 2:4-7

Merry CHRISTmas to all!!




Travel Fun & Games

I know that summer is quickly coming to an end, but you can’t tell it by the temperatures here!!  There’s also lots of people out there taking their family vacations or visiting family and friends.  To keep the kids busy in the car, I’ve created a couple simple printable activities.

Last year, I made a Travel Bingo game where the objects can be marked off as you find them on the trip.  There’s also calling cards, that someone could use to call off objects or they could be cut apart and the players draw objects….until BINGO is yelled!!

There’s a set of Travel Word Games where words are made from travel phrases.  There’s 4 different ones!!  I also made 2 versions of tic-tac-toe with a travel theme.  Finally, there’s a set of maps to choose from to color the states (or countries) that you visit or travel through on your summer journeys.

I have 2 more games in the works, but I don’t know if I’ll get them done or not.  Well, I will, it’s just a matter of when!!  Just so many things going on right now and I’m trying to keep up with it all.  Please check back to THIS post to see if there’s an update for me finishing up creating them.  If it’s not posted by Sunday, then I got overwhelmed and I’m not sure when they’ll be complete!!

Here’s a collage sample of some of the items for travel fun & games….

If you’re interested in the travel fun & games printables, please just…..

UPDATE:  There is a new set of 9-piece jigsaw puzzles with a variety of cute and fun travel pictures.  There’s 4 puzzles in the set.

Let’s Have a Picnic!!

July is National Picnic Month.  It starts off the perfect way and the perfect time for a picnic.  And that great start is Independence Day!!  What’s better than celebrating the 4th of July with a cookout or picnic by the lake.

I’ve created a couple items to help celebrate National Picnic Month and get us ready for bbq-ing this summer and church picnics!!  First, there’s Ants on a Picnic Number Mats and we all know how pesky those ants can be!!  Ants are sorted onto the mats by the number indicated on the picnic basket.  You won’t be annoyed by these cute little ants though!!

Next, there’s 2 sets of Picnic Alphabet Writing Strips.  There’s a set for upper case….and a set for lower case.  I also made a sequencing puzzle called Sequence Teddy Bear’s Picnic.  It’s made from an adorable picture and they place the strips in order to complete the puzzle.

Finally, there’s some shadow matching cards.  These are What’s in the Picnic Basket? Shadow Match Cards.  There’s an image on the plate and it must be matched to the shadow of that image on the picnic basket.  What do you think it inside the picnic basket??

Here’s a sample collage of some of the pages….

Let’s Have a Luau

Summer is the perfect time to have a luau!!  I’ve created several printables that can be used in the classroom or at a party. 

This set includes several puzzles with various number of pieces.  The main object of the puzzles is a tiki.  There’s also an old Hawaii map postcard and other luau related items.  There’s also a full set of cards that can be used for memory/concentration with a storage box.

Here’s a collage of just some of the luau/tiki items available ….

If you’re interested in these tiki printables, please just…..

As an added bonus, I created some puzzles with an aloha Mickey and some tiki Disney characters.  You can find those here.
