Free Thanksgiving I Spy Printable

This Thanksgiving I Spy printable is geared towards older kids and adults since I wrote out the words of the object you need to find. But it can definitely be done together with younger kids. I created it in black-and-white so that you can color the objects yourself for a little extra fun. A Thanksgiving I Spy game is a great way to keep your guests occupied while you’re waiting for that turkey to bake!

I made this freebie with G and L in mind. They have really gotten into I Spy type books lately (Where’s Waldo is a big one with G at the moment). I thought it would be fun to try and create an I Spy printable for them to work on during the downtime we have while waiting for Thanksgiving Dinner to be made or that in-between time we usually have waiting for dinner to settle and dessert to be served.

Signs of Autumn Scavenger Hunt for Kids

I’ve already seen some signs of autumn, despite the fact that most days are still sunny and 85 degrees. Our oak trees are starting to turn colors and the boys are finding acorns and pine cones on the ground. There have been a few days in the last week where Mother Nature teased us with some cool weather days. All of it has been making me anxious for fall to arrive. I’m ready for my hoodies and hot apple cider!

Since I made scavenger hunts for spring and summer, I had to make one for fall as well! As with the last two, this Signs of Autumn Scavenger Hunt is great for preschoolers and kindergarteners.

Getting to Know Your Teacher – FREE Printable

I can’t believe I have two kids in elementary school!

I wanted to send in a Getting to Know You worksheet to each of the boys’ teachers last year, but they actually gave us a handout at their Meet the Teacher Days with a little bit of background about themselves.

G’s teacher did the same this year, but L’s did not so I made one for him to take to school this week. I’m sharing it with you today!

I tend to have a lot more interaction with L’s teachers throughout the school year because of speech/developmental concerns and his food allergy. I know that creates more work for his teachers, so I like to go a little bit above and beyond for them when I can.

This questionnaire also includes a spot for teachers to jot down some supplies they’d like for their classroom. Each year G has come home mid-year with a list of supplies needed by his teacher or the school nurse. Teachers can write down what they tend to run out of or something they’d love to use for a future project that wasn’t on the school supply list.

Use this Getting to Know Your Teacher questionnaire for holiday gift ideas, Teacher Appreciation Week, or end of the year gifts. Or just a little random “thank you” at some point during the school year.

Grab your very own copy of the Getting to Know You questionnaire to give your child’s teacher HERE.

Summer Scavenger Hunt Printable

The boys have been out of school since Memorial Day, but it’s now officially summer! For the next couple of months, we get to look forward to days at the lake, family reunions, playdates with friends, and lots of outdoor time.

I had so much fun creating my Signs of Spring Scavenger Hunt printable that I decided to make one for summer as well. I’m thinking about giving it to the boys the next time we visit their grandparents at the lake.

Take this Signs of Summer Scavenger Hunt along with you on vacation or next family picnic!

Signs of Spring Scavenger Hunt

Spring has been here for a few weeks and I’ve been so excited for warmer weather! Of course, in Virginia, we might have a beautiful 70-degree day and a 50-degree day the next. My daffodils definitely suffered the wonky weather this year. But once it starts getting warm and the trees start blooming my heart and attitude tend to get a little lighter. Spring might be my favorite season now that I’m an adult.

The warmer weather also means that my kids are happier and more willing to go outside and play! Hooray for more quiet time!

I created a scavenger hunt for us to take on walks or use as we’re driving around town. It keeps the boys engaged, letting them forget they’re stuck in the car or on a walk they didn’t really want to go on in the first place 🙂

This signs of spring scavenger hunt would be a great outdoor activity for school or daycare as well! The images are easy to identify, making it ideal for toddlers and preschoolers who haven’t learned how to read yet.
