Every couple of months my kiddos get in a "coloring frenzy."  They just cannot get enough of coloring!  Soon enough, with 4 kiddos coloring away, we have new pictures everywhere from Pokemon characters to fairies to monster trucks.  

I love their focus and colorful creations, but for the next time they are in their ''coloring frenzy," I created a couple coloring worksheets that are fun, yet educational. 

I know not EVERYTHING needs to have some type of educational "extra," but I just can't help it.  I mean, if my kiddos are coloring... why not color shapes?

SHAPE COLORING WORKSHEETS


Hence why I created these shape coloring worksheets.  In this 'bundle,' are three different coloring sheets that give your child a ''key'' to how to color in the picture.

Squares are green, triangles are orange, circles are to be colored blue, hearts are red, and stars are purple.  

Then, once all the shapes have been colored in, your preschool and/or Kindergarten kiddo can count how many of each shape there are and write the number in the box below the shape.  

THESE AREN'T YOUR AVERAGE COLORING SHEETS, TONS OF LEARNING IS HAPPENING, TOO!  

So not only is your child coloring, but he/she is:

  • working on shape recognition
  • fine motor skills
  • hand-eye coordination
  • counting 
  • number formation

SHAPE RECOGNITION COLORING WORKSHEETS


NO-PREP SHAPE COLORING WORKSEETS


Get the box of crayons ready!  
.... or colored pencils, or markers... whatever floats your boat!  Okay, maybe not ''whatever.''  I guess I've been hanging around my teenage son too much.  HA! 

Have a toddler in the mix?  You could have him/her use dot markers to ''color'' in the shapes.  

If you'd rather not color on these worksheets, you could place them in a page protector and provide colorful manipulatives, such as buttons or pom poms.  

Go ahead, print these shape coloring worksheets out for your kiddo(s).  He/she will decorate a cookie, make a colorful unicorn, and/or color some dinosaurs.  

Enjoy these NO-PREP coloring worksheets.

Handprint Easter Card Ideas (Spring Chick & Easter Egg)

Handprint crafts are just the sweetest!  Grab your little one's hand & make these adorable handprint Easter cards to send to family near and far.  With your toddler and/or preschooler, create some fun Easter handprint art: a spring chick and handprint Easter egg.  These handprint art ideas are a MUST for Easter!

HANDPRINT EASTER CARDS

Sad to say, kid #4 and #6 don't have any handprint keepsake crafts!  And #5 only does because she helped me make these adorable handprint Easter cards!  

Little fingers and toes are just the sweetest, so capture those fleeting days with handprint art because soon enough, they get big-- and they aren't so sweet anymore! HA!

As spring weather is making its way here and Easter is a few short weeks away, set aside some time to make some Easter handprint crafts, such as a handprint spring chick and handprint Easter egg.  

You could make these Easter handprints on a piece of cardstock, a canvas, and/or turn them into Easter cards to send to family. 

HANDPRINT EASTER CARDS


HOW TO MAKE A SPRING CHICK HANDPRINT EASTER CARD


Supplies:
To make a spring chick handprint Easter card, begin by folding a piece of cardstock in half the long way.  Cut the folded cardstock into two pieces.  Use the other piece to make the Easter egg handprint card or make another spring chick.  

Paint your child's hand yellow and then help your child press his/her hand onto the front of the card.

Allow the handprint to dry while you clean up your child's hand.  Alternatively, if you are also making the handprint Easter egg card, paint your child's hand again and press his/her handprint on the blank card.  The paint should dry fairly quickly.  

Next, with a yellow marker, draw a circle around your child's handprint.  Draw some ''hair'' on top of the chick if you'd like, too.

If your child is old enough and would like to continue to help, have him/her make grass with a fork.  Press the fork into green paint and then "rake down'' to make grass-like prints.  Allow that to dry, and using your child's fingerprint have him/her make Easter eggs using other paint colors.

To finish off the handprint spring chick, glue two googly eyes, a triangle beak nose cut from orange paper, and two yellow feathers- one on each side of the chick.  

Finish the card off by adding a simple message inside the card!  

SPRING CHICK HANDPRINT EASTER CARD

HOW TO MAKE A EASTER EGG HANDPRINT EASTER CARD


Supplies: 
This Easter egg handprint craft is a bit simpler in supplies than the spring chick.  Some of the steps are similar though.  

If you have not done so already, fold a piece of white cardstock in half the long way.  Cut it in half.  Use one of the cards to make the handprint Easter egg and the other for the spring chick above, or make two handprint eggs.  

Paint your child's hand one color and then help your child press his/her hand onto the card.  Another option is to create stripes of paint.  

Clean up your child's hand and let the handprint dry for a few minutes-- it shouldn't take long.  

Next, draw an oval shape around your child's handprint.  

Using the markers, create simple designs onto the Easter egg-- zig zags, dots, stipes, etc.  Be creative! 

Finally, paint grass at the bottom of the card by dipping the back side of a fork into green paint.  Paint down to create grass marks.  

Once everything is dry, add a sweet Easter message to the inside of the card!

EASTER EGG HANDPRINT EASTER CARDS

I may be a bit biased, but these handprint Easter cards are just the sweetest!  I know a couple of special family members that will just adore these Easter cards!  

I think I will have to keep one for us, too!  

Have a someone special near or far who would love getting a sweet handprint Easter card in the mail?  

Set aside your morning or afternoon to make a spring chick handprint and/or handprint Easter egg!

Enjoy!

This letter matching activity features an adorable spring bunny who is collecting eggs, but not any old eggs.... Each egg has an uppercase letter on it that corresponds to a lowercase letter on the worksheet.  Add this upper and lowercase letter matching activity to your spring theme activities; it's an easy to-do alphabet activity!

UPPERCASE AND LOWERCASE LETTER MATCH


This letter matching activity is adorable and so cheerful that I hate to call it a ''worksheet.''  However, it is something that your child will most likely be able to do on his/her own, if they have some knowledge of the alphabet already.  

It's easy to set up.  Just print out the file and cut apart the uppercase letter eggs.  It may be helpful to print this out on cardstock and/or have your laminating machine ready to go so that this printable activity can be re-used. 

Once the letter matching activity is ready to go, spread the egg cards all around and have your child match the uppercase egg to the lowercase letter on the ''worksheet.''  YES! It's that easy! 

UPPERCASE AND LOWERCASE LETTER MATCHING

ABC LETTER MATCHING


For some ''egg-stra'' fun (HA!), hide the egg cards around the house for a little scavenger hunt!

OR, if you have a sensory seeking kiddo, add the egg cards to a sensory bin filled with rice, pom poms, or shredded paper.

But obviously, setting this up on the table is A-OK, too!  


ALPHABET EGGS MATCHING PRINTABLE

With a house full of kids (well, JUST 6!) we've had our fair share of alphabet activities, and with a couple littles still, we'll have plenty more to share I am sure.  But if you can't wait to use this ABC matching printable with your little one, you will probably also love these:

5 Senses Drawing Prompts Worksheets

Most children certainly aren't shy about weird smells or their disgust over what's for dinner, either verbally or by the look on their faces.  Oh I can just hear some of my children now (ha!).   

Sometimes young children, preschoolers, Kindergarteners, and 1st graders, are simply overwhelmed by what they are experiencing and simply may not have the language to express details describing what they see, hear, touch, taste, and smell.  To help draw out their sensory experiences, we are sharing some simple drawing prompts.

These drawing prompt worksheets are a fun hands-on way to express the 5 senses through art.  And they make a great introduction to 5 sense poetry for little learners!

WHAT ARE THE 5 SENSES?


The five senses are sight, sound, hearing, touch, taste, and smell.  Through those senses, our body and brain make connections about the world around us.  Just think of how much we absorb through our five senses everyday... every minute!!

Little learners LOVE learning about the human body.  Learning about the 5 senses gives them a "peg" to help them understand the world around them.  

Sight: Our eyes help us make connections to light and dark, shapes and colors that we see.
Taste: Our tongue is the organ that helps us perceive what tastes sweet, salty and sour. 
Hearing: Our ears are the organ that help us to hear volume and pitch.
Touch: Our skin is the organ that helps us distinguish textures and the difference hot and cold.
Smell:  The nose is the organ that helps us smell whether something is pleasing or not!

To help young children share and understand their sensory experiences, I'm sharing these 5 senses worksheets!

5 SENSES WORKSHEETS


These drawing prompts may be especially appealing to children that love to color and/or don't have the language to express their senses through words.

These print & go 5 senses worksheets are an easy activity to use with preschoolers, kindergartners, and 1st graders!

The worksheets encourage your child to share their sensory experiences- what they see, touch, smell, taste, and hear, in different settings:

  • at the park
  • on the farm
  • in their room
  • at the beach
  • and I've included a blank worksheet for you to fill in the topic.  Other ideas might be the grocery store, restaurant, at school, etc!

25 Story Sequencing Activities that Make the Story Come Alive

Is there a children's book that you have read and re-read to your child so many times that YOU could re-tell the story without looking?  

Re-reading that story to your child for the hundredth time may be futile to you, but it's developing important sequencing, language, and narration skills in your child.  Here are 25 stories that are PERFECT for re-telling with accompanying activities.  These sequencing activities are great for preschoolers and Kindergarteners.

WHY STORY SEQUENCING?


If you think about it, sequencing is an important skill that is used in many disciplines in life-- from getting up in the morning to school work like math, reading, and writing, .... and even in the kitchen.

There's an order to how we do things, and if events happen in a different order.... you may have a different outcome.  In this case, you may have a very different story! 

These story sequencing activities will help you teach your young children the importance of what comes first, second, last and how to re-tell events, which is a great way to encourage narration and develop vocabulary in your preschool or Kinder kiddo(s).

There are SO many fun ways to make a story come alive through re-telling via:  

  • story stones
  • create hands-on props
  • re-telling stick
  • puppets
  • hands-on printables
