Blog — Printable



 Birthday Parties are about food, fun and friends.   We are delivering the fun today.

The best way to keep a birthday fun and keep the kids busy is to have some activities for them.

For our THIRD Birthday celebrations we have created some fun printables for you to download and enjoy. Well, not for you exactly, for your little ones.


There is nothing better than HOLIDAYS!   WooHooo


There is nothing worse than having holidays and nothing to do, especially if the weather turns on you.  We all want to relax and enjoy slowing down...but kids need to keep active and entertained.  We all try to restrict screen time and it's so expensive to go out, so that is an occasional treat for us.


We have put together a fun list of things to do to give you some inspiration.  Some we plan on trying, some we loved when Lucas was younger.

5 fun activites for kids



Zoomin Moovin Alphabet

Lucas and I have been big fans of RoyalBaloo for many years.  Lucas has done quite a few of the Zoomin Moovin packs.

These free printables contain multiple activities, and there is a pack for each letter in the alphabet.  It's so well done it's the definition of fun learning.

You will LOVE this! 


Make a plane moneybox

With step by step descriptions and images makes this look easy. It's on our holiday to-do list.




Paper fortune teller

I loved this when I was younger and remember playing with them for hours.

They are so universally popular that there is a wikipedia page for them - with instructions!




Colour by Numbers

There is a whole range of transport colour by numbers images at
They even have some that are easier and then pages like these that are harder.



Potato Stamping

I remember doing this with my Mum many, MANY, years ago!   Of course this one needs parental help to cut the shape.  I wonder if I have the abilities to be able to cut out a car? 

The additional bonus with this activity is the stamps can be used to make Christmas paper.  Just cut the potato into a tree shape.

 The directions and idea for this one came from

DIY Father day gift ideas 

I love a home made gift and I love Pinterest.  I am also time poor with a 5 yr old that doesn't like to spend hours on crafty things.   So these are quick and easy! 

With Fathers Day coming up I have put together a little list of things that we will be doing for Dad.


1 - Honey I shrunk the kids!

Remember shrinking chip packets?  Now you can shrink the kids.


Turn your kids into a keyring, a fun little broach or tie pin. 

The post on Oh Happy Day is easy to follow, with a couple of great ideas.

We bought our Shrinky paper from ebay.  For this project make sure you purchase the plastic that is made for INKJET printers. If you have some plastic left over here is a link to a page that has 50+ Shink film projects!

This can also be done by laminating a picture if you don't want to buy the shrinkies.


2 - All about Dad

I love printables where the kids answer questions about Dad.

We do these every year and it's so cute to see the changes as the kids get bigger.
There are a lot of options out there, these ones were from


3  - Coupon Book 

Another cute idea, for slightly bigger kids to participate in is a coupon book

These coupons are for simple, wonderful little gifts, like a hug or a kiss. We love these ones because they have simple designs that can be coloured in by little people.  From 3boysandadog 


4 - DAD Card Printable.

A simple DAD card coloured in by your little one.  

 Now that's simple, fun and sweet. 

A perfect idea for a lsat minute cheap gift.  Or as a card to accompany a gift. Simple print out the printable from Kidspot here.


5 - The Car Mat T-shirt.

What would be better than a t-shirt that encourages the kids to drive cars on your back.  It keeps the kids entertained AND Dad gets a back rub.


Click on the image to go to the etsy page.
This was a father day gift for the head mechanic last year and we loved the little story book to encourage the kids to drive around.


6 - Some adorable gifts from Lucas loves cars. 

If dad is crazy about cars then we have put together a few gifts that he would love.  Simply click here.
