How are you guys all surviving? We are actually staying pretty busy here. With printables, puzzles, and decluttering our house we are keeping pretty busy.
I have seen a few bloggers rounding up printables and throwing them up on their site but the only way to access them is to sign up for their email list. Well, that’s really not how I roll. I like to keep things easy and simple here. So I have rounded up some really cute printables and sites with free printables (no email lists).
Let’s get started!
The Crayola site has been our go-to because it has been the easiest to access and print items. Aria has colored almost every Disney character they have on the site (don’t worry we recycle).
They have something for everyone. Kids, adults, boys, girls, everyone. They have activities for the seasons and holidays, and fun cut and paste activities. This really has been my favorite site for printables. (HERE)
I usually type free printable coloring pages and it brings up a ton. I just download the image and print. If you have to click on anything or sign up for things don’t waste your time or your inbox storage. Right now we need simplicity right?!
Also, there are a million things to print. From educational to just fun. I have downloaded so many educational sheets for Aria and laminated them so we can reuse them. Pinterest is a great resource for mom’s desperate to find a way to burn time and keep the kids busy.
My Montessori Lesson Plans
I have some really fun lesson plans I did with Aria for homeschool. You can access them all (here) without having to sign up for anything they are completely free. Just download and print. Once you click that link they are all listed under “How to plan a lesson”.
File Folder Fun
Now this one does have email lists if you want certain content but most are accessible without having to register. This is a great place to get some fun quiet activities for those busybodies. They have some fun activities that include legos, and blocks that help them learn math skills. (HERE)
Ok, this one is a fun one because the kids can create their own coloring pages to print off. There are so many fun options and scenes to choose from. I love that they can make their own because it can be as simple or as complex as they want. It also helps burn more time. They take the time to build their own coloring page then go and color. It’s great for the creative process and it’s so fun to be able to create your own page to color. Great for all ages and genders. (HERE)
If you want to create some of your own activities or pages I often use Canva to make mine. I used this site to make my printables for Aria’s homeschool lessons. It is incredibly easy to learn and fun to do. You can use it for free and also pay a membership fee for access to more fonts and elements. You get a lot out of the free version. (HERE)
I hope this helps you parents survive this really weird time. Remember to just take things easy, keep things simple and it’s ok to lock yourself in the pantry for a little peace and quiet!
