Keepsake Christmas Tree Activity

Posted in Holidays, and Homeschooling

We started doing this Christmas countdown craft several years ago.  Each year that we’ve done the craft, the tree changes as Munchkin’s hands change.  This year, Munchkin’s hands were the same size as my hands, so the tree doesn’t have the same shape as in years past.  It tends to work best if you have the hands getting progressively smaller as you get toward the top of the tree. Usually, we add numbered ornaments to the tree as a countdown to Christmas.  This year, we decided we wanted to have more of a focus on Christ, so I made 25…

Giving Thanks Turkey Craft

Posted in Holidays, Homemaking, and Homeschooling

Since I have decided to be part of the 30 Day of Thanksgiving, I thought it would be fun if Munchkin joined in on the fun.  I created this workbox activity to allow her to easily participate with me. Each day, Munchkin will write at least one sentence on a feather about what she is thankful for that day.  We will add the feathers to our thankful turkey.  By the end of November, she will have a turkey with lots of feathers and a visual way to see all the things that we are thankful for this month. In case…

Making Math Review Fun

Posted in Homeschooling

Flash cards can be a great way to learn math facts, but kids don’t always enjoy it. I created this file folder game for our workboxes as a way to review Munchkin’s math facts without it seeming like math drills. Pyramid of Numbers You can find the game board and instructions here. There are currently multiplication, addition, and subtraction card sets. While working on basic math facts is great, Munchkin also needed work on story problems.  I created this file folder game to assist her in working on story problems. Leaping Lemurs You can download the game board and instructions…

Batter Up! Slavery Edition File Folder Game

Posted in Homeschooling

As you can see, I’m having fun creating more file folder games for Munchkin. Since we’re studying the Underground Railroad and Slavery, I made game cards to go with that theme for this game board. This could easily be used with many other trivia type cards. I plan on making more trivia card sets for it later. You can download a pdf copy of this game here.  The Batter Up! Slavery edition cards can be found here.  You can find additional game cards for the State edition here.  

Bowling for Answers

Posted in Homeschooling

Mary from Games for Learning came up with a great idea for a review game. I decided to make up a file folder game board and question cards to go along with the idea. You can find the game board and instructions here.  You can find a template for these cards in Word here. You can download the score cards here.  If you’re not sure how to keep score in bowling, here is a good explanation. I have created bowling pin cards for the States and Capitals.  You can download these here. Munchkin is excited about having another new game…
