Luck O’ the Irish

I want to wish you all a very Happy St. Patrick’s Day!!  I hope the luck of the Irish is with you and that you’ll be able to use this free printable in the classroom or at home.  This is such a fun holiday for us adults….and the kids!!

This is a set of cards that can be used for memory.  The cards are used to match the pattern on the leprechaun to the pattern on the pot of gold.  They can also be used to play “Old Maid”, “Go Fish”, or other card games.  It also includes a storage box to keep the cards in.  

Here’s a couple pages of these cards….

Mr. Potato Head NFL Memory

I was filling a request for a group member to create Mr. Potato Head items when I came across these great NFL themed Mr. Potato Head‘s!!  I just loved them and knew I had to do something with them.

I ended up making a set of memory cards with the Mr. Potato Head for each team in the NFL on the cards.  I ran into an issue of not being able to find an image for 2 of the teams.  They are the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.  However, the 30 other teams are represented!!  I also created a storage box to keep the cards in.

Transportation

In my group right now, we’re having a month long transportation theme.  I found the idea for the first item while browsing the internet, but unfortunately don’t remember where I found it.  I’m in no way taking credit for the original concept of this game, but knew that I wanted to use it with this theme.

The first item is what I’m calling Modes of Transportation Front & Back 3-Part Puzzle Cards.  Each card has the middle section of a mode of transportation.  The player has to find the front and back of that mode of transportation to complete the puzzle.  Wouldn’t it be fun to make silly transportation too and swap out pieces??

Next are some transportation cards.  These can be used as flashcards, or used to play games like “Transport Me” (a transportation version of “Go Fish”) or concentration/memory, as well as many other things.  There’s also a storage box included.

Finally, I made a huge set of transportation letter tile mats.  There’s so many, that there’s 3 downloads!!  There’s also an answer key for some images that one might not recognize.

Here’s a thumbnail view of some of the parts to this transportation theme….

I’ve decided to go with 2 previous printables that I created for today’s freebie.  The first is The Colors of the Lorax’s Truffle Trees.  Yes, I know they’re truffula trees, but I just happen to like truffle better and I went with it!!  HAHA  This is a set of 2-part cards where the color of the truffle (truffula) tree is matched to the Lorax’s color word. 

The second item is another set of 2-part cards.  These are The Shape of Thing 1 and Thing 2.  Thing 1 has a shape and it’s matched to the shape world of Thing 2.  Both sets of card come with a storage envelope for the cards.

Who Is Watching Baby Jesus?

Today is the 20th and final posting of Nativity A Day.  It looks like I missed 3 posting, but I might not be finished for today yet!!  I really enjoyed this challenge, and I hope that you did too.

My offering for today is Who Is Watching Baby Jesus? and it’s played like Who Took the Cookie? and Who Stole Santa’s Elf? that I posted after Thanksgiving.  Players are dealt cards face down and flip one at a time over.  If the player doesn’t have baby Jesus, they say “NOT ME” and play continues on in this manner, one player at a time.  If they do flip over baby Jesus, then they say “IT’S ME” and the game ends.  In this case, the one “watching” baby Jesus is the winner!!  This also includes the box to store the cards in.

Who Stole Santa’s Elf?

This is a card game for getting acquainted or just having fun at home, in the classroom, or even at a party!!

The game can be played with 2 or more players.  The more players, the more sets of cards that will need to be printed.  You can also print more than one set for 2 players to make the game last longer.

Players are dealt the cards and they’re placed in a row face down in front of them.  The game is played to the chant of “Who Stole the Cookie?” and has the same basis.  If the player doesn’t have Santa’s Elf, they say “NOT ME” and play continues on, one player at a time.  If they do flip it over, they say “IT’S ME” and the game ends, unless more than one set of cards is used…..then play continues until the last Santa’s Elf has been flipped over.

This idea is not my own.  I got the inspiration from Super Silly Songs and their “Who Took the Cookie?” activity.  Please be sure to check out their printable activity and stay tuned for me to create another version similar to this one!!
