File folder games...counting and color matching

18 August 2013

I LOVE file folder games. Not only are they educational, but they keep my crazy (but sweet) little boy entertained and quiet! The ipad/iphone is also awesome for a few minutes of quiet entertainment, but there is something about actually physically moving and feeling things that kids can't get enough of.

I recently made Kyler two file folder games. They aren't anything fancy, but they get the job done!

Cupcake Counting:

Balloon color matching:

I found a couple free download file folder games online, but the colors and images were lame, and I wanted something that would grab Ky's interest. So, I copied and pasted these images (thanks google  coloring pages) into Microsoft word and made some file folder games myself.  After a little crayola magic, a lamination job, and some self adhesive velcro circles....VOULA.. I had quiet entertainment for my little one.

I know most people would never spend time making these, but if you are interested in a quiet time activity that doesn't involve the glorious ipad, I say go for it!  I would suggest finding images that your child is interested in... but if they happen to like cupcakes and balloons.... here ya go!
