This 1 page printable may seem like a simple activity, but there are many things you can do! First, have the kids sharpen their skills by cutting out the pieces along the dotted lines.

What you can do:

  • Mix & Match – Switch the pieces around. Ask your child what would happen if they took the snowball to the beach or tried to play soccer with the beach ball?
  • Play a game – Place the pictures facing down and take turns choosing pieces, see who can complete a friend first.
  • Learn about the seasons – Which season is missing? Have them draw their own mixed up friend to complete the set!

Activities like these encourage cooperative play while engaging in fun games. Continue Reading Printable: Mix & Match Friends…

Welcome to ALEX Printables!

Inspired by our popular and cuddly Learn to Dress Monkey, this week’s printable craft is Build a Monkey! He’s lots of fun, way cool (check out his shades) and a great way to practice zipping, snapping, buttoning and lacing with your little one at the same time you’re having fun making the craft.
