FAQs:

1. What ages are these appropriate for?

​Elementary students, kindergarten kids, young students, really, kids of all ages and grade levels.

2. Are these just for fun, or are they educational too?

Both! There are some practice worksheet pages that will help with letter recognition and tracing letters, along with coloring and activity worksheets, cute characters to color, the best way to get to the end of the maze, and vibrant colors to create in your coloring pages.

Creativity is such an effective tool for helping kids of different ages increase confidence! A fun worksheet as a way to improve important skills like problem solving is always a win, and these pages will help you whether you are a professional educator, a busy mom, or a childcare provider. 

3. Are these really free? Or do I have to signup to a million email lists just to get them?

These printable activities really are free! I specifically looked for preschool worksheets, work problem pages and other learning fun activities that were completely free to use. Just click the links and print your pages. A fun way to spend an afternoon or two!
