Fall Fun ~ Just Color!

Fall Coloring Printables



The idea behind Just Color! is simple ~ theme packs all focused around coloring. There are mostly coloring pages, and a few coloring activities. The coloring pages are all in one download to make it easier to download and print all at once, in case you have coloring monsters like I do!

I just added a new Fall Fun Coloring set!  Look for this graphic on the Just Color! page and click to download the printables!

Play with Numbers Printable Pack

I honestly wasn’t sure what Ladybug would think of the app.  We have a LOT of apps, and she is super picky nowadays.  She really enjoys her “school” apps, I just wasn’t sure if this one would make the cut for her.  Immediately she recognized the design, as we have the KneeBouncers Volume 1 {we bought it years ago}.  She began scrolling through the games and I ended up having to peel her way.  She really enjoyed this app and the educational quality was great.

I was asked to develop an activity that was inspired by the Play with Numbers section in the app, so of course I thought a printable pack would be awesome!

Play with Numbers

Ladybug’s favorite mini game was the Puppy Race, so I made a roll and graph game featuring the puppies!

Kneeboucners Play with Numbers -9105

To say she loved the roll and graph game would be a total understatement.  She saw it in a box on my desk one night {before I had planned to show her} and went nuts and begged to play!  I couldn’t resist so we had a bedtime game of Puppy Racers together!

We play our Roll and Graph games differently each time, you can see other variations here. This night she asked for stickers to mark her graph.

But, she wasn’t done yet, she was having so much fun she asked to fill in the entire graph!

Such a simple and easy to prepare activity, with so many valuable extensions for developing early math skills. Many of these same skills are developed while using the Kneebouncers App also!

I couldn’t stop there, so I also worked with KneeBouncers to develop a number maze, and also some number cards to play various games with!

Here you see her putting the cards in order.  We continued by matching the 2nd set of numbers too!Kneeboucners Play with Numbers -9090

Lots of math talk going on as she made the realization that both 3 and 13 had the number 3 in them, and so on!  It was a big light bulb moment for her!Kneeboucners Play with Numbers -9094

There are 2 sets of 1-20 cards, you can use them to work on matching, numerical order, number ID, or play memory!  There are so many variations with just a simple set of printable numbers with adorable designs kids love!

We didn’t get a chance to work on the number maze yet, it’s a bit more challenging as it contains all numbers and you have to follow the correct order to get through the maze.

Mouse Paint Printables

Mouse Paint Q Tip Painting Color Words

{disclaimer ~ affiliate links used below}

Mouse Paint is a great way to work on color word and although my daughter is a bit young for this, it’s not too early to expose!  I made these to be Q tip painting sheets, but she is an out of the box thinker and asked for glitter.  Together we put tiny glue dots on the bubbles and then glittered them!

Lalaloopsy Preschool Fun

Lalaloopsy Preschool Fun

Ladybug isn’t a huge Lalaloopsy fan, but she definitely likes them.  I added in our Lalaloopsy Preschool pack to go along with our Letter L week for some extra fun!  I have an extra low shelf in the schoolroom this year, so I cleaned it off and displayed some of our Lalaloopsy stuff there!  She LOVED it when she walked in! We already had everything except the book, which of course she didn’t even want me to read to her, I picked it up especially for this theme week!  Thankfully, later in the weeks she wanted me to read it!

Home Preschool Lalaloopsy -6692

I put most of the printables in a notebook so she could flip through and choose what she wanted to do with me.  A couple of the printables were on display, the colored matching cards were one.  She chose those first!

She adores the find the difference sheets, so she asked to do that one in the notebook first.

She was free to choose or ignore anything from her theme, here are some of the other things she chose to do…

Draw, Write, Now Book 4 Printables

Draw, Write, Now Book 4 Printables 

I am continuing to plow through creating the Draw, Write, Now printables and recently got book 4 completed and will be completing the rest of the books, I promise!

Book 4 has some fun themes; The Polar Regions, The Arctic, The Antarctic . If you aren’t familiar with Draw, Write, Now, you can see the post I wrote last year when we gave a set away and learn more about them!

You may remember me sharing Book 1 last year, and the printables to go along.  These printables are exactly the same, two different options.  One for tracing, one for copying.  Both have the same drawing space.
