All of my Printables are designed for children Pre-K to K although they can be easily adapted for younger or older children as well. I design them to low prep ready-to-go activities with the Childcare Provider in mind. To extend the life your activities I recommend laminating them so they can be used year after year.
These activities are flexible! Combine them with real or pretend leaves. Use other materials such as magnets to turn them into cookie sheet activities, or file folder games. Add them to your centers, or use them 1 on 1..
