WFMW (free children's printables)

It's time to post yet another WFMW tip.

Not long ago, as I was reading my January 2007 issue of Parents magazine (yes, I'm playing catch-up and still trying to get through my January and February issues), I stumbled across a most valuable link. I felt like I had hit the jackpot!!

Parents magazine has compiled a list of free children's printables. It includes roughly 65 printables for your children: games, puzzles, stickers, bookplates, and much more!

Needless to say, I got sidetracked for quite a while looking at all the fun stuff that was being offered.

Here are a few of my favorites:

1) Mother Goose memory game cards

2) Insect memory game cards

3) Lunch box love notes

4) Mother Goose bookplates

5) Happy stickers

Note: For the Mother Goose bookplates or the happy stickers, you can use glue or tape, or you can print them on full-sheet labels, like Avery 8165 White Inkjet Address Labels, 8 1/2" by 11".

If you haven't seen this list of printables already, go check it out. I know you'll love it as much as I do!

To see what works for others, be sure check out the links over at Shannon's, the creator of Works-For-Me Wednesday.
