My suggestion is to print the tree template (click here) on green card stock and the ornament on white card stock. For a school activity for very young ones it might be cool to use velcro strips for an easy and mess free activity!

For those of you that know my work as an illustrator, I love drawing monsters ! I thought I would put those monsters to work to help you teach your kids about the main food groups with a cute free printable activity!
Here is a preview of the activity which includes:
1 sheet of food items to color and cut out
6 sheets of adorable monsters asking for a specific food group, so the kids can practice dividing the foods in different groups
1 sheet for the kids’ own plate with their favorite foods divided according to the FDA guidelines for healthy eating.
Start teaching your kids about healthy eating today ! Download the Hi-res pdf for this activity here:
So for all of you who don’t have the chance to build a real one, either because you are lucky enough to live in a warmer climate or because like me are having cold winter with no snow, why not build a paper snowman instead?
I created two free printable templates to use at home or in your classroom: the body of the snowman and the pieces. Of course you can also have the kids create the body out of construction paper or other supports, just make sure to kind of match the size of the pieces.
As usual, all you need is a printer, scissors and glue! Have fun!! If you have pictures of your completed works, please leave some in the comments, I would LOVE to see them!
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, Out/In, Hot/Cold, Tall/Short, On/Under, Behind/ In Front, Close/Open, On/Off.
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 on the button 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?
