Shelf Elf Counting

We’re having so much fun with our Elf on the Shelf, that I just had to make another freebie for you all!!  I know I had plans to do more, but with everything going on, I just wasn’t sure I was going to get any done.

This game has several possibilities.  For this one, I left the elves blank and made numbers from 1-100 to place on the elves.  One shelf of elves can go up to 25, so if printed 2 per page, you could use it for counting to 100.  It can just be a matter of placing in numerical order or even skip counting.  There’s a variety of ways that these little shelf elves can be used for number games!!

Here’s a thumbnail view of what this game looks like….

Shelf Elf Alphabetical Order Fill-In

It’s time for a Christmas freebie printable!!  This is the first year that my family has done the Elf on the Shelf and we’re having a great time with it.  Even though my daughter is a teen, she’s playing along and looks for him every morning.  How many of you have an Elf on the Shelf at home or in the classroom??

Well, I decided to create a couple printables for this cute little character.  This is just one of what I’m hoping will be at least a couple more.  This one was a complete thought and I was able to finish it up between the hectic holiday schedule!!

For this game, the directions say that the elves have lost their space on the shelves.  In order for them to get their spot back, they must be placed in alphabetical order by filling in the blanks between the elves already sitting on the shelf.  So the elves fit on the shelves better, I’d recommend cutting them out instead of the whole boxes.  For little hands, cutting the whole box might be more convenient.

Here’s a thumbnail view of what this game looks like….

V.B.S. – More of Amazing Wonders Aviation

I’m back with some more AWA themed printables for VBS.  First though, I’d like to say THANK YOU for all the wonderful comments.  You’ve truly made me feel wonderful and you’ve reminded me why I spend so much time creating these for the kids.  It warms me to know that they will be used and hopefully enjoyed by the kids.

Now onto the new VBS printables!!  First up is a set of memory verse cards.  They can be used a number of ways.  One could line them up to complete the memory verse, or 2 copies could be printed and they could be used for concentration.  There’s also a number of other things that can be done with them.  The verse is from the NIV version of the Bible.

Next, I made a blank file folder game (ffg) that I called “The Race”.  This can be used for fun or to teach/review a skill.  All you need is die/spinner and player tokens.  I’ve provided the rest!!  There is a blank spot for you to fill in the directions for how you want the game played.  There’s also a set of cards that are blank for you to write in the skill or they don’t need to be used.  I also made an optional back for the cards too.

Last up is a shadow match game.  This one is more for fun or a time filler.  The airplanes and logos are matched to shadows on the map (game board).

Here’s a thumbnail view of some of the parts to these Amazing Wonders Aviation printables for VBS….

V.B.S. – Amazing Wonders Aviation

Each summer, one of my group members conducts Vacation Bible School (VBS) at her church.  For a few years now, she’s asked me to create printables that they can use in the classroom because they have a limited budget and can’t purchase the whole package.  This year, their theme is Amazing Wonders Aviation through LifeWay and it looks like a great backdrop to teaching the kids God’s love.

They use the NIV version of the Bible, so any printables with the verse for this theme will come from that version of the Bible.  Also, I just want to note ahead of time that I will be adding a few more items to this and I’ll do another blog post to update what ever else I create.

For the memory verse, I made a cryptogram, fallen phrase, double puzzle, and letter tiles.  These are all puzzles geared more toward the older elementary age kids.  There’s also an AWA maze.

I created a set of banners and doorknob hangers.  You’ll find desk plates and name tags as well.  There’s also a set of basic VBS bookmarks. 

Finally, the things that I’m most excited about and proud of is a passport and tickets/boarding passes.  The kids can hand the teacher a boarding pass each day as they enter class.  Beforehand, the tickets can be filled in with the destination that the class is going during VBS.  There’s also a set of semi-completed tickets for those that don’t want to fill in all the information.  The passport can be stamped by the teacher as activities during VBS are completed or a lesson is done for the day.  I just can’t tell you how much I love these!!

**PLEASE NOTE:  When I printed the passport, it printed front and back perfectly on the 2 printers that I have.  One, prints front and back, while the other, the paper has to be flipped over and re-inserted.  I’m unable to give tech help on how your printer might print front and back, so if you have an issues, just print one-sided and then cut each page out and insert in the cover, then staple.**

More Froggie

At the end of April, I shared some froggie flashcards that I’d made for a request from one of my group members.  I’ve now created some additional materials for her and wanted to share them with all of you!!

First is a set of puzzles featuring the same cute froggie, plus a couple of his friends.  The puzzles come in 4, 6, and 8 pieces.  If you print on cardstock and laminate, they’re perfect for little hands!!

There’s also a set of alphabet clothespin cards.  The upper case letter is on froggie and the lily pad with the matching lower case letter is clipped or marked.

Also in the making right now is a set of number clothespin cards.  They will be from 0 – 25 with the number of froggies being clipped to the numeral.  If these aren’t in the file when you download, please come back to get them!!  (When the thumbnail view is available, these cards will be available.)

Lucky Money

I took a break and tried to get my creative juices flowing again after all the madness of having something for everyday of the week for Dr. Seuss and the contest.  I’m ready to move on again and get to making things!!

I realized that I was running out of time to create for St. Patrick’s Day, so that’s what I got to work on first!!  This is a set of 2-part cards called Lucky Money.  The amount on the pot of gold is matched to that value in coins.  These go up to 99¢ and use quarters, dimes, nickles, and pennies.

The coins are © US Mint.  Graphics and background © A-Manda Creation with permission.

Sharing the Love

I know, my posting is few and far between.  Since my surgery, I’m just so much more active and don’t spend the time at the computer that I used to.  Plus with the GigaTribe mess, I just didn’t feel like sharing, much less creating new materials.  I gotta admit that I miss it just a bit though!!

Today, I have a folder of Valentine’s Day printables.  Most of these were made last year.  Some of you might have them, or they might be new to many of you.  Either way, it’s a great set of 9 fun activities for the kids!!

First up is my oldest one in the batch.  It’s Valentine Stamp Pattern worksheets and there’s about 3 pages of pretty stamps to complete the pattern on.  Next is A Heart of Many Colors and it’s a set of 2-part cards for color matching.  Then, I have The Shapes of Love 2-part cards for matching the shape to the shape word.

There’s 2 sets of clothespin cards.  One is Have a Heart and that’s for counting numbers 0-20 and Sweetness & Love is for matching upper case to lower case letters.  I also have a set of Have a Heart mirror cards to work on symmetry and just fun play with a mirror!!

A Time for Love is a set of 2-part cards for telling time.  They are for 5 minute times.  There’s a flipbook called Count on Love for matching the number of objects, the numeral, and the number word from 0-20.  Finally, there’s The Price of Being Love Birds which is a set of 2-part cards for money values.  It’s matching the value of a Valentine’s gift to the correct amount in coins.

New Year …. New Direction

I want to wish all my readers, followers, and those who use my printables, a very HAPPY NEW YEAR!!  I hope that you have a blessed 2012.

With a new year comes new directions and some changes.  This is so true for me!!  It’s also true for my blog and the things that I create.  I will still continue to create and share my educational and Christian printables, but I’m adding to my portfolio.  I’m going to start to create printables for the home, party supplies, gifts, and items like those.  I feel that it’s time for my to broaden my horizons.  I don’t think that any of you will be disappointed by what I share and I think it will bring in a wider range of viewers to my blog.

My first new offering for the new year is a set of checkbook cover art.  This is a set of 4 different ones.  The checkbook cover art are inserted inside the clear plastic covers.  I’ve had one of these covers for years and my insert if wearing out and I’ve often wanted to change it out.  I measured them for the clear cover that I have, but some might vary slightly in size even though they’re pretty standard in size.  In that instance, I’d just trim off the borders to help them fit better.
