Back to winter and back to the long days at home. With the schools closed and the freezing temperatures outside this is a good moment to find some new easy printable kid activities to do! This easy to cut face can turn into hours of fun! Click here to download the face template and here for the parts template. If you want a more durable activity, print the parts on cardstock instead of regular paper. If you don’t have cardstock, don’t worry, paper will do just fine. Have your child color the face parts before he cuts them and then have him cut along the dotted lines or help him cut them out. You can either: print multiple faces and glue different parts to make a gallery of different people or just place the different cardstock parts on the face and have fun! It can also be used to discuss emotions: prompt your child to create a sad face, a happy face, an angry face and a sad face. Try moving the eyes and the mouths in different positions to see how the face will change emotions!
Recently a french blog called “French Zendalas and Zentangles” posted about our little printable house project. I was very happy to see that and also very intrigued by the idea of the Zentangles: a series of black and white decoratif motives sometimes abstract sometimes forming shapes. I realized that it has been something I have been doing while doodling since I was a young girl and spent my time doodling on my journal during classes. That is why I decided to create some Zentangle “inspired” artwork and I made this “under the sea” page that is perfect for being printed on adhesive paper and made into stickers. I am going to decorate a white dresser for my kid with it, but the whole page could also be printed and framed to become an original artwork for the kids room. It is now available in our Etsy store for only 2.00$ and you can print it as many times as you’d like.
