The ‘Green’ Version of the ABC Printable Scripture Cards


I updated the ABC printable scripture cards so that they could be printed on both the front AND back of each piece of cardstock.  This will take a little bit of effort on your part to ensure that the paper gets fed into your printer correctly (and facing the right direction).  You also must select 'reverse page orientation' on the back sides ONLY of each page when you are printing it.  If you … [ Keep reading… ]

Pretend Play: Valentine Cookie Bakery


I can't take credit for this idea:  Valerie from Frugal Family Fun is the genius behind this fun pretend play activity!  I was motivated to make these felt cookies because we are in charge of Parents Night Out at our church this Saturday and I needed to come up with some activities for the kids to do.  I thought it would be something that the girls especially would enjoy.
