Freebie Friday- Lego Themed Matching File Folder Game

Happy Friday!

Sorry for the week long absence. I’m still here!

I’ve recently opened a shop on Teachers Pay Teachers. I mostly sell Clip Art, but every now and then I put printables in there as well.

I created a pack of TEN lego themed filed folder games to sell in the shop. You can find it here.

Today’s FREEBIE is one of the games offered in the pack. It is a matching game geared for preschool. The game includes a cover sheet, two papers for gluing into the file folder and the appropriate pieces for the game. I highly recommend laminating or covering with contact paper to extend the life of the game.

Enjoy your weekend!

Daily Lego Building Challenge- April 2014

My kids TOTALLY abandoned the lego challenges this month! I don’t blame them… we had a CRAZY month… lots of sickness, a two year old hospitalized with pneumonia, field trips, enrichment classes, Big Brother’s birthday. It was a busy time!!!

I thought I’d give them another chance with the challenges and put together a calendar for April.

Enjoy!!!

Freebie Friday- Daily Lego Building Challenge- February 2014

February already ?!?! I don’t know about you, but I have had the hardest time getting on track with homeschool since the new year. We’ve been sick! sick! sick! I was the latest victim… and let me tell you… when mom is sick, you may as well just pack it up and call it a day. Nothing got done. The fact that my children were fed and the house was still standing is a miracle!

Here is the calendar of daily challenges for February. In honor of the Winter Olympics, most of the challenges are Olympic Themed. Enjoy. Click on the link BELOW the image for the printable version!

Lego Soap Project with FREE Printable Gift Tags

*post contains affiliate links*

I’m trying to get my kids to think outside of themselves during this Christmas season. For me, as a child, Christmas was all about me and what I could get! I don’t want that for my kids.

IMG_20131210_171038

I tried to think of something fun that they would all enjoy making and I came across Lego Soaps. I used THIS TUTORIAL from Just Crafty Enough. Because the tutorial is so well laid out, I’m not going to repeat it.

IMAG4711

I picked up theBuilding Bricks and Minifigure Ice Cube Tray or Candy Mold –for Lego lovers
from Amazon and the clear glycerine soap base from Michael’s (I used a 40% off coupon). The whole process of making the soap was so quick and easy.  I let the kids pick a scent (either peppermint or lavender essential oil). It was perfect for my kids’ attention spans. The soap was firm and ready to pop out of the mold within half an hour! I did let it sit out and harden a little more before we put it into an airtight container.

The kids were seriously super excited about this project.

The only thing left is to stick the soaps into a plastic gift bag and stick a label on it!

Need a label, feel free to print these FREE ones! Click on the link BELOW the image for the printable version:
