Here’s some more fun activities for St. Patrick’s Day! Great for classrooms, parties, homeschool, and just for fun!
Slip these into your kids’ lunchbox on Valentine’s Day to put a smile on their faces, or set them by their plates at dinner for a little Valentine fun! Also great for the classroom or a Valentine party!
These reading encouragement activities are great to use at school or at home to make reading extra fun for your kiddos!
Paper people are back! Just color and cut out the kids, then do the same with each costume. Have fun dressing the kids in cultural folk costumes from around the world!
This is an 8 week reading tracking chart! Great for the upcoming summer reading programs!
…and a little book report form.
And of course, your kids will need some book marks for all that reading! ;)

While a huge blizzard of snow was coming down today, the kids and I pretty much made a snow flurry inside as well.
We’ve been making paper snowflakes all day and my floor is literally covered in snowflake confetti.
I’ve always wanted to make the perfect snowflake. “Perfect” meaning not lopsided. Pretty is good too–I especially like those pretty 6 point ones.
The kids and I have spent a large portion of the day cutting, drawing, figuring, making messes, and making patterns. I tried to make these as easy, clear and kid-friendly as possible. The patterns are printed right on the paper you’ll be cutting. No tracing, no guessing, no problem. Each has an icon in the upper left that rates it’s difficulty level: easy, medium or hard.
Oh, and if you’re feeling creative, I’ve included a blank pattern so you and your kids can design your own!
The season is officially here! I created these printables in preparation for the cold snowy days when the kids like to sit around coloring. (By the way, coloring printables goes great with hot chocolate and a warm fire nearby.)
One more thing, for those of you that live in warm places in December, what kind of Christmas decor and printables are you looking for? A friend in California once told me she likes to decorate with snowflakes even in the warm weather. How do you celebrate and decorate?

We love to decorate pumpkins this time of year like everyone else. I don’t like the oo-ey goo-ey mess of carving them though! I think mostly I just don’t like the idea of the kids using sharp knives to carve pumpkins. Anyway, that’s why we paint pumpkins.
I created these little printables to decorate the pumpkins after we painted them….crazy eyes, mouths, and creatures.
Here’s the creative minds at work!
In hindsight, I’m not sure if this is actually any less messy than carving pumpkins, but at least its safer!
More Halloween printables as promised! Here is a Halloween Neighborhood Treat chain letter. I’m going to start this in my neighborhood tonight! (To my neighbors: Okay, so I gave it away…but just keep it going! It’s so fun when everyone gets a treat!)
Also below, a Halloween gift tag–perfect for decorating a plate of spooky treats–and a Halloween party invitation. Print and Enjoy!
I love fun holiday activities. I created these printables last year and Anne was excited to have her teacher use them in class. They are great for classrooms or to use for a fun Halloween party activity at home! Print and enjoy!

Don’t forget about the Angel Street Kids Monster Backpack and Monster Lunchbox—PERFECT to take to the Halloween party at a friend’s or overnight at Grandma’s house!
Wondering what to do for Grandma for Mother’s Day?
This is a really fun thing for kids to do at home or at school. Kids love to decorate cookies and they love it even better when they get to present it to someone they love.
Just cut out the ‘Grandma Recipe’ and paper cookies. You could use the recipe card to write a sweet note on the back, or just use these as embellishments to decorate a plate or bag filled with your grandma’s favorite treat. Even if your sweet grandma can’t have sweets, you could still use these to decorate a cute gift bag or Mother’s Day card.

BTW-I don’t really bake cookies a whole lot. It takes too much time! So if you’re a fabulous dessert maker, go make something that will knock grandma’s socks off! If you’re a not-so good dessert-baker, like me, and like to save time, there are several different things you can do and still give a little homemade touch. You can buy sugar cookie dough already made, or even the already baked plain sugar cookies, and then just frost and decorate them.
