Best of May 2017

Welcome to summer! June is here, and May 2017 is in the books. It was a good month where I found out how much my readers love mini folding books (I already knew that my kids ADORE them 🙂 ), I did a lot of work behind the scenes of the website, and our house construction made great progress (we’re now planning on moving in in November!) 🙂

Letter A Picture Matching Game


I chuckled a little when I saw the top 3 most popular new posts this past month 🙂 The images are deceptively similar, although the posts and printables are obviously different 😉 There’s the Letter A Mini Folding Book, the Letter A Picture Matching Game that uses the same images in a very different format, and my tutorial on How to Assemble a Mini Folding Book – that happens to also be based on the Letter A Mini Folding Book.

If you’re currently working on letter A, my most popular posts definitely have you covered 😉


My Personal Favorite New Post of May 2017

Once more, a matching game was my favorite of the month! They’re so versatile, can be adapted to many themes and learning objectives, and they’re fun every time. This particular set, Strawberry Emotions Matching Game, was even more awesome than most: My 2-year-old LOVES imitating facial expressions, and he had a field day with these cute strawberry faces 🙂
