Stories For My Little Sister

While browsing for freebies, I as supposed to look for free banners for a website that I am planning to set up with a friend, I stumbled upon this pretty unique website for children. It is called “Stories For My Little Sister” and is a website that contains downloadable original stories written by an older sister for her younger sister who loves to draw. Unique, eh?

I don’t have children of my own yet so I haven’t downloaded any of the stories available here on this website but I am surely going to let my friends, who are young mothers, know about it so that they can download these stories with colourful drawings for their children.

Free Beijing 2008 Worksheets & Coloring Pages

I was helping my late cousin’s daughter look for printable coloring sheets of the Fuwa mascots of Beijing 2008 Olympics, BeiBei, JingJing, HuanHuan, YingYing and NiNi. Somehow, these five Chinese kids in costumes of China native animals have captured the hearts of children and adults alike all over the world.

Like many schools, this girl is required to take some Beijing 2008 printables to her art class so I had to help her since she is not web savvy.

I found Reader’s Digest with quite a collection of free Beijing 2008 Olympics printables. They are all in .PDF format so you will need to be sure that you have Adobe Reader or a similar program installed on your computer to open and print these files after downloading them. Enjoy!

Origami For Kids

Do you remember folding paper planes when you were a kid? I do. It seems like an eternity ago, though. What I did not know was that there could be so many types of paper planes because I only knew how to fold one type. I guess kids these days are so much luckier as they could always refer to the internet for craft ideas and inspiration.

Origami Kids is a good resource for kids to learn how to fold paper planes, boats and other things. The art of folding paper is called Origami but the art of folding paper planes specifically is called Aerogami. HHmm don’t we just learn something new daily?

If you have a kid on your hands, without an activity idea, you may want to check out Origami Kids and fold, fold, fold!

My young niece has been pretty excited about the upcoming Beijing Olympics, 2008 next month in August. This is like her first Olympics as she was too young back then.

I thought that it would be a good activity for her to color the Olympic mascots. Who agrees with me that BeiBei JingJing HuanHuan YingYing NiNi Olympic mascots are cute? I think that the creators of these Beijing Olympic mascots are innovative and they have a winner, or five, on their hands.

I searched for free coloring pages of BeiBei, JingJing, HuanHuan, YingYing and NiNi and managed to find a good selection of free coloring pages from Activity Village.

If you are also looking for free coloring pages of Beijing Olympic mascots BeiBei, JingJing, HuanHuan, YingYing and NiNi, whose names, by the way, collectively make up “Beijing Welcomes You”, then head over to Activity Village.
