Printable DIY Mermaid & Monster Coloring Game

My preschooler is very intrigued by learning to read lately. I must admit, it’s often difficult to get her to sit down and focus on a book for more than 20 seconds. I’ve found that playing games is an easy way to spark her interest in practicing her reading skills.
Combining two of her favorite activities, coloring and playing games, seemed like a great way to hold her interest long enough to practice reading. So, we made this “Build-a-Mermaid or Monster” game to color and play together.

How to Make a Planet Paper Mache Project

OOLY’s Lil’ Poster Paint Pods offer a fantastic palette of colors fit for a cosmic space theme! I loved the neon colors in this set, they’ve made it possible to create fantastical, “galactical” planets as a great paper mache project. These brightly colored planets would make great props for a school project, a space themed birthday party or just to hang in a child’s bedroom! And the perfect accompaniment to the D.I.Y Alien and Spacecraft from my previous blog.
