Frequently Asked Questions

What age are these activities suitable for?

Aimed at ages 2 to 6 years old. Including toddlers, preschool & pre-K kids, kindergarten students and early elementary kids. Activities are designed with a range of skills, to keep growing with your child.  

Are the activities aligned with any specific educational standards or curriculum?

They are aligned with supporting the healthy developmental needs of preschool children. As a cognitive psychologist, I investigate the data behind how children learn best. And I use that info to structure my activities so your child is learning in a developmentally appropriate way. Research shows that worksheets are not appropriate for Pre-K age kids. And my activities are anti-worksheets. My activities require kids to use their hands to manipulate them in order to complete the activity. They do not require kids to have any writing abilities (unlike most worksheets). And they would align with a structured play-based preschool program. Also, while not strictly Montessori-focused, they are Montessori aligned.

Can this activity be used for homeschooling or in a classroom setting?

Absolutely! Use it as a complete lesson plan, or supplement your curriculum. Perfect for homeschool parents or teachers to use in classroom activities. It even comes with a sample lesson plan.

Can this activity be used multiple times, or is it a one-time use?

Definitely reuse these activities over and over. You can always print multiple copies, but I recommend laminating for durability. I’ve designed many of the activities to be used in multiple ways and the materials to be interchangeable between activities.

Does the PDF provide clear instructions on how to use the activity?

Always! All of my printables include clear instructions — from printing & setting up your activity, to how to engage with your child while you play. Plus lots of bonus creative ideas of how to use this activity in unique and fun ways.

Can I print and use this activity immediately after purchase?

Yes, your download will be available within seconds after your payment goes through.  You’ll receive an email with a link to your download, and if you create an account, you can always access your files there. Downloads never expire and have no download limits. 

What are the terms of use?

For personal use only. Use it in 1 household or 1 classroom. No commercial usage and can not be resold.
