Hello! I created this card game to help the kids practice some basic rhymes while having fun. Here is how it works:
- Print the pdf file and cut out the cards
- Shuffle and Distribute all the cards to the players. It is ok if one person has an extra card
- First, the players look at their cards and if they have a set of three matching rhyme cards they put them down showing them to the other players
- Next, the players take turn taking a random card from their opponent. Anytime they make a match they put it down and then go again.
- Beware: nothing rhymes with Orange! So you really don’t want to get stuck with that orange card!
- There are two ways to end this game (depending on the age and personality of the players)
- the player left with the orange card at the end of the game loses
- OR when all the matches are found, the player with the most matches wins!

Hello! I normally only post activities that I created myself, but these are times in which lots of fellow artists are pulling together to share free resources and activities for kids to do at home and I want to make sure all of you get to know about them as I come across them.
First up, the amazingly talented author and illustrator Doug Cenko has on his website several activities related to his wonderful books: there are free printable “My Papa is a princess” and “My mama is a mechanic” paper dolls, “Sleepy Solar System” coloring pages and, my personal favorite, a model to build a Big Cheese car from his book “Little Monster Truck Go!” . If you haven’t read the book yet, there are 5 adorable little monster trucks each with their own unique shape and personality: my favorite is the kitty truck of course, and I hope Doug will a model of that to the list too…. but for now, enjoy the Big Cheese template by clicking here and don’t forget to get Doug’s fantastic books (click on the names to be redirected to their page on Indie Bound).

I created this activity with slightly older kids (or perhaps adults) in mind, as a way to help them be creative without having to follow a pattern too strictly. It is a game I play often when I feel like doodling: I create a bunch of organic looking shapes and the imagine faces and creatures inside of those. I am posting here my own final result as well as my own blobs but I can’t wait to see what all of you come up with! It’s sort of like looking at clouds and seeing all sorts of creatures in there. All you need is to print the free template, add some faces and features and then color. Don’t forget to share your work with me in the comments!

Valentine’s day is almost here and I am always a big fan of making your own free printable valentines 🙂 Last year I made robot Valentine (click here to download and print) so this year I went with a pet themed Valentine design. This time I have created a two sided card so you can just print one behind the other and then cut and fold your valentines.
