Next in our series of guest posts (as I finish the work on our Fun at Home with Kids book) is the lovely Kate from Picklebums. I first fell in love with Kate's site when I saw her free printable hexicards (below), but two of my other favorite posts of hers are her gorgeous post on chalk and loose parts and her amazingly fun looking sludge!

{Guest Post}  Ten Playful Free Printables for Kids by Picklebums for Fun at Home with Kids

Hi, I'm Kate, and I have an obsession with printables.

It all started back when I discovered digital scrapbooking and learned how to create digital scrapbook kits. Then I had twins, and then I two more babies, and for some reason I never find time to scrapbook these days. Instead, I fill the need to 'make stuff' by creating printables for my kids to play, and I share them on my blog, Picklebums.

My philosophy as a preschool teacher has always been 'learning through play', and that same ideal influences the printables I create. All of the free kid's printables on my blog are designed to inspire our children to play, explore and learn.

I hope you and your kids enjoy these playful printables as much as my kids do, and as much as I enjoy making them. 

Add something new to your small world play with these one page printable play mats.

Playing shops? Print this blank play money and design your own currency!

Choose from four different shaped glasses and have fun decorating and wearing your crazy glasses.

Do you have a car lover? Print them some roads!

There are so many ways to play and learn with these simple coloured hexagons!

Paint or colour these printable masks and add ears, or a hat to make them extra fun!

Sing your favourite ducky songs with these cute puppets.

You only need one piece of paper to make these crowns.

Lots of space characters and accessories to add to play dough or small world play.

Going on a holiday? Need something to keep the kids busy in the car? Print these out.

  1. I love the printable roads! My 18 month old is really getting into cars and trucks in the past month or two and this is great! We travel a lot and it will be so much easier than taking tracks and trains with us! :)
