There’s nothing worse than your kids drawing on your walls and furniture because they are bored, right? Give them something else to use their artistic talents on with these fun and free printables for kids! Most of these work for all kids under age 12, and some of the sites are age specific. I’ve broken them up into ‘just for fun’ and ‘educational’ to make your life easier. One site that falls into both categories is Scholastic.com. They just announced that they are offering free resources to parents and teachers on their site while kids are out of school!
Thank you to everyone who contributed to this list. You had so many great ideas and suggestions, it was hard to sort through all of them. If you have any favorite printable sites I missed in this list, tell me about them in the comments!
