The Long Cold Winter

I’m back after a very long “break”!!  We had an absolutely crazy and hectic holiday season.  Then after the first of the year, we all got sick.  We had a very bad bronchitis that had the whole family down for the count.  We still have a cough, but we’re much better.

In my “down time”, I updated a ton of my files that I’ve created.  I had more than I remember and still have plenty to do.  I’ve really enjoyed finding all these things that I’ve made and can’t wait to share them here!!  Since today is Groundhog Day and he saw his shadow, which means 6 more weeks of winter, I decided I’d share my winter materials.  On top of that, here in OK, we had about 3″ of ice and that’s under 6″ of snow.  Crazy!!

Winter Badge

Here’s a list of the printables that you’ll find in the winter file….

  • 6 Coins Winter Fun Puzzle Cards – Match the amount of the 6 coins with the amount on the matching puzzle piece.
  • Winter Fun and Signs of Winter Mirror Cards – These work on symmetry skills.
  • Snowball! – This is my winter version of checkers.
  • Winter Fun CVC Puzzle Cards – Match the CVC word to the image of that word.
  • 3 Sets of Snowman Clothespin Cards – The cards work on matching shape to shape word, counting and matching the number of snowflakes to the numeral, and matching the color to the color word.
  • Winter Kids 3-Part Cards – Match the numeral, number word, and the amount of snowflakes.
  • Snowflake Shapes 2-Part Cards – Match the snowflake shape to the shape word.
  • Snow Fun Magnified – Use a magnifying glass to match the miniature image to the full size.
  • Winter Bingo – This is a bingo game for numbers 1-10.

If you’re interested in any of these printables, just click the image above.  You’ll be taken to the folder that contains all these files.  You can download all of them or just the ones that you want.

The clipart and graphics are from various sources.  Some of the artists are Denyse @ Scrappin’ Doodles, Katie Dupree, Graphics Factory, and Annette @ Kuntry Graphics.  Other images from internet sources and believed to be public domain and they are used for educational purposes without profit.

Would You Be Willing To Pay??

I recently found some clipart that I like and really want to use it in some of the printables that I create.  The problem is, it’s not allowed to be at all for freebies.  I’d like to know if you’d be willing to pay a small fee (say 50¢) per printable created using these graphics.  It’d be my typical materials that I create and I wouldn’t size anything down or try to make extra.  Payments would be made via PayPal and you’d receive the item by e-mail within 24 hours.  I just need to charge something to so that I’m not violating the TOU of the artist and her clipart.

Thanks for voting!!



Shelf Elf Counting

We’re having so much fun with our Elf on the Shelf, that I just had to make another freebie for you all!!  I know I had plans to do more, but with everything going on, I just wasn’t sure I was going to get any done.

This game has several possibilities.  For this one, I left the elves blank and made numbers from 1-100 to place on the elves.  One shelf of elves can go up to 25, so if printed 2 per page, you could use it for counting to 100.  It can just be a matter of placing in numerical order or even skip counting.  There’s a variety of ways that these little shelf elves can be used for number games!!

Here’s a thumbnail view of what this game looks like….

Shelf Elf Alphabetical Order Fill-In

It’s time for a Christmas freebie printable!!  This is the first year that my family has done the Elf on the Shelf and we’re having a great time with it.  Even though my daughter is a teen, she’s playing along and looks for him every morning.  How many of you have an Elf on the Shelf at home or in the classroom??

Well, I decided to create a couple printables for this cute little character.  This is just one of what I’m hoping will be at least a couple more.  This one was a complete thought and I was able to finish it up between the hectic holiday schedule!!

For this game, the directions say that the elves have lost their space on the shelves.  In order for them to get their spot back, they must be placed in alphabetical order by filling in the blanks between the elves already sitting on the shelf.  So the elves fit on the shelves better, I’d recommend cutting them out instead of the whole boxes.  For little hands, cutting the whole box might be more convenient.

Here’s a thumbnail view of what this game looks like….

Christmas Printables

I’m working on some new Christmas materials to share with you all, but it’s taking so much time and I’ve just been so busy.  I’m sure that you can relate, as I’d be willing to be that you all have a lot going on too.  In the meantime, you can see the previous Christmas freebie printables that I’ve shared.

Santa with list and bag

If you’re looking for nativity ideas, please look here.  There’s 2 pages worth of things that I’ve shared in the past.  If you’re just looking for general Christmas, you can see those here.  There’s a few nativity that showed up on this list as well.

Also, last year when I did my “Nativity A Day”, I shared them on my personal blog.  You can find nativity printables here.  There’s more than a page of them.  For basic Christmas prinables, there’s several for you to look at.  You’ll find Christmas printables here andsome 12 Days of Christmas here.  If you read through this, you’ll find several Christmas materials.

I hope this keeps your kids and family busy having fun and learning for now.  There’ll be some new Christmas printables coming soon.  Thanks for stopping by and I hope that you find something that you can use.

If you use any of these freebies, please leave a comment and let me know or share pictures of your kids in action with them.  I’d also appreciate it if you took the time to click the button below to vote for my blog….thanks!!

Hanukkah Fun Pack

I know I haven’t been around much, but I hope that this was worth the wait!!  This is a “fun pack” for Hanukkah and it’s filled with activities for class, home, a party, or anyplace to keep little ones and adults busy.

This pack includes a word search, crossword puzzle, and a maze.  There’s also games like “Menorah”, which is checkers and “Dreidel”, which is tic-tac-toe.  There’s also the game of “Gelt”, which is a version of bingo!!  Finally, there’s several pages of lyrics to popular Hanukkah songs.

Here’s a thumbnail view of some of the pages included in this fun pack (click to enlarge)….

Baby Bubble Shapes

Today, I have another game from the depths of my files!! I was so happy when I found this one and the previous one because I remember when I made this one and how much I loved these adorable little tub babies!!

For this file folder game, shapes filled with tub babies and bath items are matched to shapes floating in the bubbles on the game board.  This one will take some ink because I put the background behind the objects as well as the shapes so that when the game board is filled in with all the proper shapes, it also fills in the missing spaces and fills in the bubbles.  I don’t know if that makes sense or not!!  HAHA

Here’s a thumbnail view of of this game….

Babies, Bubbles, Quacks, and Shapes

Today, I have something from the depths of my files!!  This one is what could be considered a “classic” in the printables world.  I was so happy when I found it because I remember when I made this one and how much I loved these adorable little tub babies!!

For this file folder game, each baby in a tub has a shape on it.  The shape word that’s on the rubber ducky is matched up to the baby in the tub that it belongs to.  I also added the shape words of rhombus and ellipse for those that don’t use diamond or oval.

Here’s a thumbnail view of parts of this game….
