*FREE* Winter Fun Mini Play and Learn Printable Pack

-Free- Winter Fun Mini Play and Learn

It seems that the bad weather and snow in the New England states is never going to end.

Here in the south, we have had a very comfortable winter so far.  Lots of 65 and 70 degree days wearing flipflops and plenty of sunshine.

But I guess all good things have to come to an end at some point, Right?

If our local weather man is correct, then it’s coming to an end very soon.

We are predicted to have bad weather of freezing rain and snow for most of next week.  I can deal with snow, okay maybe a inch or two, but it’s the sleet and freezing rain that I cannot  live with.

We are so used to not getting much bad weather that when it does happen, it send our small rural town into a panic.

Next week I will be keeping my grand- daughter while my daughter and son-in-law go out of town on business.  I plan to have the pantry  and freezer stocked but I also need activities prepared as well.  Of course, we have movies, books and puzzles but I wanted to create something fun to do just in case the bad weather does hit.

After I thought about it, I decided to do a Winter Fun Mini Play and Learn Printable Pack, (geared for Pre-K-1) because what better activity to do in the snow than printables about snowmen and snowflakes.

In the pack you will find the following fun activities:

  • Memory Matching Game
  • Counting Practice
  • Word Search
  • Coloring Sheets

What you will need to have on hand:

  • Crayons or Markers
  • Scissors
  • Cardstock and Laminate (if you prefer longer lasting durability)
  • A Printer
  • Paper

I have also included a list of my favorite children books that fits perfectly with the theme of this printable set.

Make Education Fun with Disney Jr Games

If you’ve not been following me on Facebook, you may not know that my 8 year old daughter is in the hospital with pneumonia, a complication of her asthma.  She’s having to be on continuous breathing treatment in the PICU, where they give her albuterol, steroids and regular chest percussion treatment to hopefully rid her lungs of all the fluid and mucous within.  The first  58 hours, she wasn’t allowed to eat or drink.  You can imagine how bored she was getting.  Thankfully, I had bought these Disney Junior games and they have really saved us, when we thought we were running out of things to do.

Savannah in Hospital

I had previously purchased these educational Disney Junior games at Walmart for my 5 year old daughter.  We homeschool and I thought she’d have fun practicing her writing and math skills with them.  After all, what little girl doesn’t like Mickey Mouse or Doc McStuffins?

I bought the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Learning Schoolhouse Activity and the Doc McStuffins Alphabet Learning Activity.

Disney Jr Learning Schoolhouse Activity Doc McStuffins

We used the Learning Schoolhouse Activity here at the hospital.  When I first opened it up, I was a little worried.  It’s actually supposed to be for a Pre-K to K aged child, and here I was trying to occupy my 8 year old with it.  While some of the activities were a little young (like the ABC flashcards), we were able to improvise and have a great time with it.

 

Features of the Learning Schoolhouse Activity

 

Learning Schoolhouse Activity - #Ready4Preschool  #shop

 

  • Learn to Tell Time
  • Practice Handwriting
  • Build Math Skills
  • Learn the Map of the U.S.
  • Letter & Word Recognition
  • Pretend & Play School

 

We used the US Map to quiz her on her states.  I would think of a state that we’ve been to before or one that someone we know has moved to, and she would use her pointer to show me where that state is on the map.  She’s not very strong on her geography, so this was a great educational activity that also proved to be fun, as we told stories about these different places.  You can see where she’s pointing at California, the state I was just in last month for a blogging conference.

She also used the word and picture magnets to make stories on the built in dry erase board.  In fact, that spurred her imagination even further and she decided to make more stories and books for her siblings to give them when she got home.  You can see one of her short stories here.  Her handwriting is pretty messy as her hands were shaking the whole time, thanks to the medicine.

 

Disney Junior Games - Where to Buy

 

She practiced her time telling skills.  We have a clock in her hospital room and I noticed how she was doing really well at knowing what time it is.  We’ve done time telling with her math programs in the past, so this wasn’t new to her, but since we haven’t really practiced it this summer, it was a good chance to go over her clock skills and see if she could figure out what time it was.    She did great and is now almost a pro!

 

Disney Jr Learning Schoolhouse Activity 3

 

We’ve been in the hospital for 4 full days now and we’ve done so many things, we had thought we’d run out of fun stuff to do.  Even watching TV was boring her.  These Disney Junior games saved the day and I’m so thankful I accidentally left them in the van at the perfect time!  Savannah says she can’t wait to get home, so that she can play school with her little sister, Avery.  Since these were originally purchased for Avery, our 5 year old, she’ll get a lot of use out of them in our school year, while the older children are doing their own school work.  I love that they can use these to have fun AND learn.  After all, learning doesn’t have to be boring, does it?

 

If you’re interested in purchasing some, you can find them in the school supplies section at Walmart.  In addition to the ones that I mentioned above, you can also find:

 

  • Learning Easel Activity Center
  • Counting Learning Activity
  • First Words Learning Activity
  • Rhyming Learning Activity
  • Numbers Learning Activity
  • Colors & Shapes Learning Activity
