Today’s free printable pack is a memory matching game perfect for young superhero fans, brought to you by our contributor Kim of Life Over C’s
Superheroes are totally loved in our house. All four of my daughters will watch superhero cartoons, beg to watch the movies, buy the toys, play the games. I’ve made superhero learning activities for my older kids before, but my littlest one, who is in special needs preschool, hasn’t had a game just for her. So, I made this Superhero Matching Game with her in mind, though the older kids will definitely be playing it too. (They’ll probably end up monopolising it, so she never gets to actually play…)
We’ve been learning a bit about Arctic animals, so I put together a colouring pages pack featuring seven of the animals that we’ve been covering. Look out for the Arctic animals fact sheets printables coming soon, along with some game ideas to play with them!
Arctic animals make a great theme for winter. When it’s cold outside it’s easy to imagine the freezing Arctic regions! Some of these Arctic animals are so cute, but many are powerful and deadly too!

Grown up colouring is a big thing these days. It’s relaxing and calming nature play a big part in why it’s won over so many fans, and it’s for that reason that inspirational words colouring pages are always some of my favourites.
There’s something quite meditative about colouring words that inspire you, or that give you a positive message, and they also make excellent pictures to display once you’re done.

I’m sure all of us have spent time folding and flying paper planes during our childhood, and now there’s a new kids movie out celebrating that timeless favourite pass time.
Here are four fun ways to fold paper planes, inspired by the hit Australian movie Paper Planes (click the link to read our full review.) This is a great family friendly movie, which the kids and I really enjoyed. It’s out in cinemas in the UK now!
These four paper plane folding ideas will see you through the stages from the classic paper plane you probably learned to rustle up as a kid, up to some crazily unique designs like the round “defier”. You can see all of these paper plane designs at different points of the movie, along with some other really impressive ones too.
Paper planes are one of the most popular forms of origami, and are a childhood staple – introduce your kids to these new designs, and I’m sure they’ll be impressed!
