The Top 3 Most Popular New Posts in September 2016



Pirate I Spy Game

I Spy Games are among our favorite types of printables! In fact, the first printable I ever made for E was a Valentine’s card I Spy Game. This pirate version was the most popular new post in September!

Stirring, Pouring, and Color Mixing Station

This was so much fun for both kids! Just some simple water play that offered a lot of opportunities to explore cause and effect and was the perfect activity for both siblings to do together despite their age difference.

Halloween Matching Game for Toddlers

I’ve started making printables for toddlers since N has become interested in them, and toddler matching games are his absolute favorite. Large images, a limited number of cards, and a large size for little hands make them perfect for young toddlers that aren’t ready for full memory games yet.


My Favorite New Post of September 2016



E loved this Write the Living Room activity! It was very simple to set up, and I’ve included a downloadable file with the words I used in both English and German to make it even easier for you. However, you can easily just make your own cards if you prefer.
