Children, Printables!

Get your kids working!

Raise your hands if you think many hands make for light work! Now it’s time to get the kids involved in helping out around the house and this chore list is just the ticket to get them motivated! My kids love a list they can cross off…I can get more cooperation out of them if I hand them a list.

So, in the spirit of manipulating your kids…I present this free printable chores list AND it comes with a few blank lines so go ahead mom and dad, add a few extra things to the list.

Our kids love a chore chart they can mark with check marks when they complete the tasks!

Encourage Each Other!

This post is for the ladies…how often do you find yourself feeling alone? Overwhelmed? Not good enough?

We should encourage each other whenever we can. Sometimes it’s hard because we are all running around all the time making sure everyone and everything else is how it should be.

Here is a free notecard you can print out and keep in your purse. When you see another woman who may look exhausted, glum, frustrated…whatever…write a quick encouraging note and give it to her!

Here’s a link to a print-friendly version…print it out as much as you like. …and watch the site for more designs!

Prayer Request Cards for Kids!

Here’s an adorable, FREE Prayer Request Card printable for you to use with your little kids. You can print these out as many times as you want…no limit. You can find this by clicking here:ย My Prayer Requests!)

Have you child fill out a card- maybe at dinner or after brushing teeth and putting on pajamas. Prompt him or her to think about specific things to pray about to encourage this kind of thinking on his or her own. Doing this will help establish good prayer habits while children are young. It spurs them to think of others, to think of ways they can lean into God and to trust in Him.

Bonus…parents, you get the sweetest responses written in your child’s handwriting and you’ll most likely melt into a puddle of goo.

You’re welcome!

Let me know what you think of these and please feel free to share!

I’m quite the little zoo!

zebra-470305_960_720A few years back, boy child and girl child were enrolled in a preschool and as the school year was coming to a close, we wanted to do something special for the teachers from the kids. So I found a free zoo print background and printed the below poem I wrote on top of it to create a greeting card. Then I had the kids place zoo critter stickers all over the paper as they saw fit.

The teachers loved the card the kids had made and they so enjoyed giving their own sticker creations to their teachers. These ladies who cared for our children were so loving and kind every single day and we love and miss them dearly.

I’m Quite the Little Zoo

Like the lion and the Tiger,
I am getting big and strong.
I am also growing taller
Like Giraffe with neck so long.

Like the stripes upon the Zebra’s back,
There’s no one else like me.
I can play and climb and run around
Like a Monkey in a tree.

As a wise and wrinkly Elephant,
I am smarter every day.
I’m tough like Mr. Alligator
When I go out to play.

I’ve grown so much in this whole year
Thanks so much to you.
I’m many things as you can see
I’m quite the little Zoo!

Here’s a free printable version of the poem so you can use it with your child to make a handmade gift for your child’s teacher! Enjoy!!

A gift for you!

You guys, your little kids are gonna love this! It’s a great way to have some giggles together with a really short story they can make very unique. So, the instructions are pretty simple…

Grown up: Copy the story below, “A Day at the Farm!” and then paste it into a MS Word document (or similar program). Print it out so you can write in the blanks. You’ll see there are several groups of words under the spaces…ask your little kid to pick a choice from the words and then write in what his or her choice is. Once all the words have been picked, read the funny story to the child. Or, if your child has started learning to read, let him or her try to read it aloud to you.

Guaranteed laughter…we tested it! Enjoy and let me know what you think! ๐Ÿ˜Š

A gift for you!

So, my kids love reading bedtime stories and to hold our place, we’ve been using all sorts of make-shift bookmarks so I decided to make some official ones for them. To say thank you for your friendship, I’m also sharing them with you. So if you have little ones in your life or if you would like a cute little bookmark yourself, just copy this printable and paste it into MS Word (or similar program), print on card stock-type paper, cut them out, punch a hole in the top and add a ribbon…or don’t add the ribbon and be a rebel! ๐Ÿ™‚

Enjoy!
We will read more tomorrow!
