Printable Activities for Kids – Free Printable Activity Sheets

Free printable games for kids

While still young, parents should already stimulate and engage their children’s senses and interests. This means that they should let their children be curious about their surroundings and start learning how most things work. Games (specifically interactive ones) are a great example of this. Naturally, children have quite a short attention span and are more prone to get bored or lose interest that are not fascinating to them. This is why simply sitting them down while parents teach them stuff does not usually work especially with young kids. And because of this, parents should think of creative and fun ways to teach their children. Games such as board games, puzzles, and other interactive activities help challenge children’s minds as they will be encouraged to think more actively and make decisions. Games will also help your children practice a longer attention span as they will be focused on the task at hand. It is also always good to add in some educational games such as quizzes or flashcards to hone their memory and problem-solving skills.

With all that said, you may now be wondering about what things or games to buy. But if you must know, you can actually just print out these kinds of games within the comforts of your own home! Some of the few educational printable games you can find online are: 

  • Maze games. This will challenge your children to use their brains and think of ways to escape. There are different themes of mazes so be sure to choose ones that you are sure to catch the interest of your kids. 
  • Word search. If your kids are already at the stage where they can read and write, then word search is a great game to try. Depending on the skill of your child, you may want to print out easy or intermediate levels. 
  • Connect the dots. Kids of all ages always love this kind of game. You can choose to print out numbers or the alphabet instead of plain dots to further challenge your children.
  • Spot the difference. This is also a fun and challenging game for your kids that is easily printable. Make sure to print fun photos that your kids will love!
  • Color by number. To further hone your children’s artistic sides, you may give them a simple coloring page or you can also print out photos with specific numbers to them wherein there are assigned colors to the numbers.

Fun printable crafts

If you want your children to practice their creativity, then you may want to present them with easy crafting and DIY activities. And since they are still young, you may not want to present them with complicated materials to DIY. So instead, you can print out crafts that you can make or find online! This can include printable paper dolls, greeting cards, paper toys, puppets, and more. If you want more ideas and inspirations, here is a list of fun printable crafts that your kids will surely love.
