Popsugar Reading Challenge 2016 Free Printable List of Prompts


Last year I decided to take the Popsugar reading challenge and it was a lot of fun. I haven’t read all of the 52 books in the list, but I got to about 45 and on the way I have discovered some awesome books I don’t think I would have read otherwise. This year’s challenge seems a lot more doable since it has only 41 books on it and it seems equally interesting. I am not sure if I am going to do it yet, I do want to finish the old list first, but I thought I would write down the list of prompts the way I like it: with spaces to add the title, the number of pages,the author and the start/finish date for each book.
Here it is, free for you to print/download and share!

EDIT: Someone asked me to have a blank version of the list so they could make their own. I think it’s a very cool idea! I can’t make one that it is easily editable online but I can definitely make a printable one. Here it is:

Free Printable Whimsical Castle Adult Coloring Page


I am back! I have been gone for a while I know, but I plan on being back with some new exciting projects this year!

My first plan is to make a series of adult coloring pages. I have always loved coloring pages and this year I have noticed I am not the only one since many of my friends got some awesome coloring books for Christmas (me included). So I thought, why not make some nice free ones for my readers? Here is my first one!

It is a whimsical fairy tale castle. Ok maybe it is not so “adult” but the drawing is intricate enough to keep anyone busy for at least a few hours I would say! As I was drawing it I couldn’t help but let my imagination wander into what kind of story could take place in a castle like this, imagining what kind of wizards, knights and princesses would live there…. yeah, I am a child at heart! I have also used some special symbols on the castle doors, can you tell me what they are?

The image below is a low resolution preview, but if you click on the image it should open the link to the high resolution printable version. I recommend using something thicker than normal printer paper, especially if you plan on using markers, but it’s up to you.

I would love to see some finished versions of this! I know I will be working on a couple of mine today, please share yours and I will post them here!

EDIT: I spent the rest of the afternoon coloring one of these castles with my 6 years old son and here is the result! It was so much fun, especially hearing the stories he would make up about what is inside each of the towers… Can you guess which one is the princess’ tower and which one is the king’s ?

Printable Kids Activity: Make a Face/Exploring emotions.


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!
