Finally a new free printable kids’ activity!! Winter is still long, at least here in the Midwest, but I have to say we are not getting that much snow this year! What is the fun of winter without snow right?
So for all of you who don’t have the chance to build a real one, either because you are lucky enough to live in a warmer climate or because like me are having cold winter with no snow, why not build a paper snowman instead?
I created two free printable templates to use at home or in your classroom: the body of the snowman and the pieces. Of course you can also have the kids create the body out of construction paper or other supports, just make sure to kind of match the size of the pieces.
As usual, all you need is a printer, scissors and glue! Have fun!! If you have pictures of your completed works, please leave some in the comments, I would LOVE to see them!

This is a very simple memory game whose object is to practice the concept of opposites. It comes with 8 pairs of opposites: Happy/Sad, Hot/Cold, Asleep/Awake, Above/Below, Open/Close, Behind/ In Front, Small/Big, Inside and Outside.
As you can see I did not write the words on the bottom because I think these cards could be useful to practice a foreign language and wanted to give teachers and parents the freedom to write their own words on the bottom. Also if you can laminate them, then you can use a dry-erase marker and have your budding writers write the correct words on the bottom themselves!
The images below are only the low-resolution previews, click here and here for the hi-resolution versions. As usual you are free to use these for any non-commercial purpose. If you like them, leave me a comment, I love to receive feedback and know how my things are used and why! What other opposites would you like to see? What other kind of games?

From the point of view of someone from Europe, American houses look a lot like doll houses, and everything seems to come out of a movie at first. I find the architectural styles of older American towns fascinating and beautiful and this interest is what inspired me in this project. I designed 7 houses in 7 different styles: Italianate, Tudor revival, Greek revival, Craftsman, Victorian, Colonial and Log Cabin. I looked at pictures of real houses for inspiration although these are not exactly perfect copies in most cases. I also decided to draw four classic cars, although they are not all American in this case: I couldn’t help but add a VW Beetle and a Fiat 500!
You can color them or not, and you can print them on cardstock, cut them out and create your own little town. I think they would be cute even just as wall decorations. Click on the image to get the hi-resolution printable version.
