Fun ideas from


Fall is here (although in some places of the US it doesn’t feel like it yet), and was nice enough to send me some samples of fun activities my kiddos could do to help bring in the new season! They both tried out a maze, and a word search that focused on prepositions, both on autumn themed paper. The word search was perfect for them because they could actually¬†read the words on the word search, which made it more meaningful.


I did some clicking through the website, and they are chock full of different supplemental materials that l think could be fun for kids (but keep in mind, not everything is free). Here’s what says about the word search my kids enjoyed:
