Hug Bracelets

Sometimes you just want to give someone a hug that lasts all day. I designed these fun bracelets for just such an occasion. You can find the printable PDF at the bottom of this post!

To make your hug bracelets you will need something to color with, scissors, and tape. I would suggest coloring the bracelet before you cut it out, or, if you need to divide it for multiple people, cutting it so there is a border while you color. This allows you to get all the way to the edge without making a mess! After you color you will need to cut put the bracelet on the dotted line, then hug it around someone's wrist and tape it together so it stays on!

I was thinking while we were coloring these; how cute would it be to get a envelope full of hugs in the mail? It sounds like the perfect way to brighten a grandparents day!

Cookie Counting Printable

Monday, April 8, 2024

No comments

This week's printable is delicious! Or.... it looks delicious anyway. This is a simple cutting and counting activity meant for preschoolers and kindergarteners. Have your child cut out the cookies on the dotted lines, then put them onto the plates according to how many chocolate chips each cookie has. You can find the link to download this printable at the end of this post!

If you happen to glance at the photo above and think "hey, there's a chocolate chip missing," don't worry. My very efficient and thorough product tester (aka my son) found the mistake and it has been fixed. The pdf has enough (fake) chocolate chips, though maybe not enough real ones.

Spring BINGO

Monday, April 1, 2024

No comments

The weather is finally warming up, and we are getting our first spring blooms! I figured this was the perfect time for some Spring BINGO. All of the things I included in this BINGO are common in our region, so hopefully they will work for where you live as well. Take this sheet outside and see how many you can find!

I tried to keep the art for this printable simple and recognizable, so even your younger ones will be able to participate! We colored with markers to check off what we found, but often at the library, we will use candy or snacks as markers for an extra layer of fun.

Eggs Book Basket

Happy Easter! We had some beautifully illustrated books on display at the library and I just had to check them out and share them here. I've also been seeing a bunch of unique egg-dying techniques that I've been wanting to try with my kid, so I decided to make a day of it!

First I'm going to show you the books. You can find a printable .pdf of this list, plus a few extra goodies, at the link at the bottom of this post! I wasn't lying when I said these books were gorgeous. I picked a couple the are about the tradition of Easter eggs, one that is a really cute counting book and also a bit of an eye spy book, and a few that are just great non-fiction about eggs in general.

Now on to the activities! Ro and I had a lot of fun dying these eggs. I was trying to collect some more science and process-based ideas, because I knew we were going to do traditional dying with my family the night before Easter. These links were all a hit!

Rice Shaker Eggs from The Crafty Morning - These were the most satisfying eggs for getting vivid colors. The details did fade a bit when I rinsed them, but they still retained some color. Ro loved this one for the nearly instant gratification. (In the picture below these eggs are the red and blue speckled ones.)

Shaving Cream Eggs from The Crafty Morning - I've done this process before with paper, and it's always turned out surprisingly vivid. However, these eggs weren't nearly as colorful as I would have liked. That could have been our technique though, we only did two eggs with this method instead of perfecting the process. You can see the result on the egg that is in the lower left corner in the photo below!

Baking Soda Dyed Eggs from Better Homes and Gardens - I'm going to be honest, I didn't really care how these were going to turn out, I just knew we had to do it for the chemical reaction. I really ended up liking the subtle color shifts of these eggs, though. You can see my favorite of the bunch in the lower right corner of the photo below.

Color Mixing Printable

Monday, March 18, 2024

Did you know that to create most colors you only need red, yellow, and blue? Here is a simple printable created to help your young ones understand the basics of color creation.

Color in the ovals with the color labeled. Make sure they color in where the ovals overlap, because that's where the magic happens! I find that this works best with markers, but you can use crayons or colored pencils if that's what you have!

In the end you should end up with green in the top ovals, then orange, and purple in the bottom. Adding a but more of one color and a bit less of another will change the color, but it will still be in the same family.

Rainbow Slide Printable

This is just a fun little project I dreamed up with the Leprechaun traps in mind, but it would look cute on a dresser just holding things too! Tape one side to a table and slide all of the things down into the clouds. My kid is always looking for a new way to test gravity, haha.

There are seven colors for this rainbow, just like a real rainbow. So to create this you're going to need scissors, tape, and red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet colors. Or go rogue and make an only blue rainbow! There's no one stopping you from making this creation your own.
