I may be slow but I just found out about all these great File Folder printable games for kids. What you do is print out the games and glue them onto File Folders. You glue the game boards on the inside and the instructions on the outside. Then you can glue the game pieces onto card-stock paper and cut them out. Store the game pieces in small Ziploc bags or envelopes and attach them to the file folders. There you have it! A game all stored in a small file folder that you can organize in a bin or file-box. I think it is genius and can’t believe I have just found this out.
I found a cool site that has some called File Folder Farm. I like how they have the games broken down by grade. They have games for Pre-K up to 2nd grade. So far, I have printed out the Shapes By The Sea and the Apple Alphabet Matching Game. It took me about 15 minutes to get everything glued and cut. Here is how they came out:
The trees have the upper-case letters and the game pieces are lower-case so it helps the child to see the difference. Abby really liked this game.
This one was a little easy for her but the oval, diamond and rectangle are new shapes for her so we will continue to play it until she gets those down.
I can’t wait to get more printed out and made up. Do you know of any other sites that have free file folder printable games? Let me know! I’d love to check them out. These are so great. I just love how they are so organized…I know I am a freak.
