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).

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.

As Halloween is getting closer, I thought I would add a few crafts that you can do with your kids at home or at your classroom Halloween Party. For this craft all you need is to print the two templates, color the pumpkins (or print them directly on orange paper) and then cut out your favorite face and make your own jack o lantern!
There are so many combinations you are guaranteed to have loads of fun making as many pumpkins as you would like.
Did you make this craft? Please send me a picture! I would love to feature it in my website!

Hello everyone! Not many of you know this, but I am a HUGE Shakespeare fan. Not only I graduated in English Literature, not only I spend a year in Reading, UK studying almost exclusively Shakespeare, I have also just completed 100 PORTRAITS OF SHAKESPEARE on Instagram! To celebrate my achievement and my passion I created this cute template: you can print, color and fold your own little Shakespeare figurine! Isn’t he cute??? I have used the template from the fun app Foldify, but I was not happy with the drawing tools they provide so I had to export their template into Procreate and use that. Anyway, I really hope you enjoy it!!!

Here is a new free printable Easter game! All you need to do is print the eggs in color on cardstock paper and cut along the dotted lines. You will end up with 42 half eggs. Spread them on the table face up and challenge your kids to find as many matches as quickly as possible: the person with the most matches when the cards are all gone wins! Another, slightly harder, way to play it is to put the cards face down like in a game of Memory; the players take turns to flip the cards and a match is made when the two sides of the eggs match.
It is fun, it is simple and you can print it at your own house! Tie the cards with a ribbon or put them in a small snack ziplock bag and add them to the kids’ Easter Basket! Together with the free printable maze they make a great addition to any basket!
Just right click on the image to print it and enjoy!
