DIY Dominoes

Dominoes was one of the first games Ronan really loved. We've made many DIY versions of it, including these magnetic ones. I love it when my kid gets to put their own personal spin on games, so I thought I would make a simple printable so you could do the same! You can download the PDF of this printable at the bottom of the page!

The most complicated part of creating your own dominoes is making sure you have a full set. That means you have doubles and one of each element for another element. So if you choose to use colors, you would have a red red, a red orange, a red yellow, a red green, and a red purple. Then you would repeat that process for all of the other colors. I made a little chart to hopefully help explain.

With this printable you should be able to make a set with 6 different elements. You can use dots, like normal dominoes, or get creative and use shapes, colors, patterns, etc. The options are limitless!

Printable Scavenger Hunt

Monday, February 19, 2024

There is something about scavenger hunts that my kid just LOVES. He will hide and re-hide, then beg me to hide, and then hide everything all over again. The only problem is sometimes he forgets how many things he's hidden, or where their hiding spots are. So I decided to create a scavenger hunt that included a checklist, so we could make sure that every piece got found every time.

All you need to do to have your own scavenger hunt is print out the PDF (link at the bottom of the page) and cut on the dotted lines. If you would like your checklist to be reusable you can cover it with packing tape and use a dry-erase marker!

Here is a quick and easy number recognition sorting activity for all of your love bugs, just in time for Valentine's Day! You can find the link to this PDF at the end of this post.

This printable is a simple sorting game. You will need scissors, and maybe something to color with, but that's it. Have your child cut out the bugs on the dotted lines, then count the number of spots on the bugs and put that bug on the appropriate petal. I love how cute these bugs turned out!

Super Simple Valentine's Day Cards

Monday, February 5, 2024

This week I want to share some very simple Valentine's Day cards that I've created! I added a little window element to make them a little more exciting, but there is plenty of room for customization so your little one can create exactly the Valentine they want. You can find the link to the PDF at the bottom of this post!

To make these Valentine's cards you will need scissors and something to color with. If you want to do the scribble method, first you'll turn the paper blank side up and scribble all over it. Then cut out the two rectangles. Now you want to fold your paper long ways, so the heart is folded in half, with both sides looking the same. Now cut out your heart. Fold the card in half on the dotted line. Finish by filling in the "To" and "From."

Shadows Book Basket

Happy Groundhog's Day! Let's be honest here, we talk about the groundhog, but the real star of the show is the shadow. So I put together a book basket all about shadows, just to celebrate! These books get into the myths, science, and fun of shadows. And I've included two books that directly tie into Groundhog's Day! Plus links to a bunch of fun shadow-related activities. If you'd like a PDF of the book list, plus a few extra goodies, scroll to the end of this post.



Once we figured out the best method, Ro had a lot of fun drawing shadows. You can find out more about this on the Emma Owl blog!

This Shadow Matching Activity from Hands On As We Grow is genius, and uses supplies you're sure to have around the house.

We made some very simple shadow puppets when we did our Flashlight Book Basket, and we had fun guessing what the shapes were when they were on our garage!

The great thing about having shadows as a theme is the activities are endless. Use your hands to make animal shadows. Play a shadow game where you are the shadow and have to copy what the other is doing. Set up a lamp and just have fun with shadows on the wall. And, best of all, if you get your books from the library this can be a free day full of fun!
