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.

Today I was doodling while my kids were happily bouncing around in one of those awesome bouncy house places we love to go to in the winter. The doodling resulted in these four bookmarks with quotes by four of my favorite authors: Neil Gaiman, Patrick Rothfuss, Terry Pratchett and Jenny Lawson a.ka. The Bloggess.
I liked them so much that I thought I would share them so you can print them and color them if you like. Click here (not on the image!) for the hi-resolution version of the bookmarks.
Is there any quote you would like to see as a bookmark? Let me know and if I like it enough I might create one and post it!
