I Can Do - file folder games and paper plate fishes...

I came across a few sites about making 'File Folder Games' for toddlers. These are a great way for little one's to learn about colours, shapes, numbers, letters, animals, matching, etc... I have put together a few now - they take a bit of work & time to prepare - there is lots of printing, cutting, gluing and laminating. It's well worth the effort though and Molly will also get to use them.

I introduced Lola to her first file game last night and it was a hit. I got Noah's Animals from Christian Preschool Printables

Our May theme for 'I Can Do' was Under The Sea - Some books we have been reading are:

and At the Beach (a board book by Hinkler books)

I saw these paper plate fish on 'The Ramblings of a Crazy Woman blog' - This was such a cute but easy craft to do & they look great stuck on the wall. Lola is very proud of her fish that she painted and made.

The wonderful thing about reading home school blogs is the wonderful craft ideas and printables you can get from other home school Mum's. I love thinking of new ideas for my children to do, but just don't have the time to work on a lot of them at this time in my life. So God bless those women who have made such great resources and freely share them with other homeschool Mum's.

Those fish were a hit when we did them at Playgroup a couple of years ago too...
We also did ones painted balck and red and the kiddos stuck round black sticker dots on them as Ladybugs.
Cute and easy!

But really Girl, you are so creative and doing such a great job at homeschooling. Kudo's to you.

Great blog you have here! I host a link up party every Tuesday called Tot Tuesdays where you can link up crafts, activities, teaching resources, parenting stories or tips, recipes and things you’ve made for your toddler. I’d love it if you’d stop by sometime & link up!
