Dear Moms, Dads and Kids,
Today, I am going to share some of my secret stash of websites with you 😉
It might have been a year or two when I got introduced to this world of printables. I just LOVED them.
I couldn’t believe that there was collectively just so much information out there. So much that, was made easier for me as a parent. So, as I painted, learned, crafted, greeted and partied with my daughter, I used some of these printables.
I want to share these with you and I am positive that they will also help you, as you do all the above with your child. If you visit these websites and their blogs, you will find one thing in common. There is so much passion, individuality and generosity in these awesome women. All they want is to share more and more of their treasures. Be sure to do that, if you love some of them too.
Jilian writes, “I started Catch My Party in 2009 as a place to find party ideas and inspiration from real people. It is a place to discover incredible ideas, share party photos, and connect with people who love entertaining.” This is absolutely true and the best part is you can also add your awesome parties here to share your ideas with the world. I am also going to add our Mickey Minnie party here.
Michelle writes, “I hope you enjoy the printables that I design on Printabelle. I sure enjoyed making them!” Michelle has some amazing stuff and she can even personalize them for you for a small fee. So imagine, you choose a theme, you choose a creative, lovely party printable and you can even get your child’s name printed on it.
Jilian and Michelle are creative individuals I really admire. Their websites have awesome party printables all neatly sorted into themes.
Jolanthe writes, “I am a homeschooling mom to four great kids and have been homeschooling since 2006. I began creating different printables to go along with our studies ~ geography worksheets, planning sheets, preschool printables and more. The home school creations site contains the different resources that I have created to share.” When most of us find it tough to even use the available material to teach our kids, I find it remarkable that Jolanthe has homeschooled and actively participated in her children’s education by creating so much material. She also urges you to share and use these.
Carisa writes, “1+1+1=1 is a blog that began in 2007 and has grown beyond my wildest dreams!” Carisa, with such lovely content, it had to grow and we pray it will grow more and more. If you go to her about page, she has very nicely outlined how to proceed through her blog, in case you get overwhelmed and that’s exactly how I felt 🙂
Art, craft and fun Printables
Leanne writes, “DLTK’s Crafts for Kids features a variety of printable children’s crafts, coloring pages and activities including projects for holidays, educational themes and some of our children’s favorite cartoon characters.” DLTK has lovely printables and many of them are also for teaching in a fun way. Once you are here, you will also find some more educational and craft sites which belong to her daughters, Tasha and Kaitlyn. And they are great too. Looks like Leanne, passed on her zest for creativity and learning to her daughters. Way to go Leanne.
Maggy writes, ” My aim for Redtedart is: Inspire you to go and get crafty, Inspire you to try out something new, Help you to explore great artists with your kids, Give me andmy children a creative outlet for all our activities.” Maggy, you have not only succeeded but your blog is outstanding for it’s simplicity and it’s reach into our hearts & life. I guess, you have something to do with that! 🙂
First Palette is the creation of Sue, a teacher and craft enthusiast who is passionate about sharing her ideas with educators and parents. Firstpalette’s about page writes, “Our goal is to nurture creativity and a passion for learning in children.” Sue, I love your crafts, templates and printables and have used quite a few of them.
Wow, even writing about them, made me feel so good.
