A coloring page and a reminder to be kind to each other .
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!

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!
Halloween is near! Here is a free printable Halloween Craft to do with your kids at home or at your classroom Halloween party! All you need to do is print the template, color the pieces, cut them and then fasten them to each other with brass fasteners and you will have a dancing skeleton and a dancing Frankenstein ready to go and be the “life” of the party!
Summer is here, and with that comes summer break and bored kids! So here is my first summer project: two super cute bracelets of a mermaid and of a merkitten ! Just color them, cut them out and then slide the top part into the dotted slit at the bottom and you have a cute bracelet ! I recommend printing on card stock if you want it to last a little longer 🙂 I asked my 6 years old son to help me with the kitten and I colored the mermaid, aren’t they cute?
Here is another fantastic free Saint Patrick’s day activity: build your own Leprechaun!! All you need to do is cut out the parts (as you can see from the photo above you don’t need to be super precise about it, especially around details like the fingers!) and fasten the different parts with metallic brads. I was lucky to have some that actually look like buttons which I think adds a lot to the look, but any kind of metallic fastener will work, and voila’ you have your own dancing Leprechaun!! I have, as usual, created both a black and white version and a color version, in case any of you want to color your own or don’t have a color printer available. Enjoy, and don’t forget to send me pictures of your projects! I love receiving those!!
(Just right click on the images to print on letter paper. If you can print on cardstock even better, but paper works out too!)
