File Folder Fun
When I first started home-learning with my son K, I discovered the concept of file folder games online. I created some file folder games and discovered that K really enjoys working with them, so from then on, File Folder games are a must-have for our weekly home-learning.
So what are File Folder games? File folder games are simple activity games for preschoolers made from laminated cutouts and envelope pockets neatly consolidated into a paper folder. They are portable, easy to store, can be easily created for any subject and most of all, will help to make learning fun and engaging for the child.
Here are some basic supplies that you will need to create a file folder game :
- Computer with a coloured printer
- Adobe Acrobat Reader (alot of file folder games available for free download online are in .pdf format)
- Laminator / cardstock
- Glue / Double-sided tape
- Paper file folder
- Adhesive Velcro (dependent on the activity)
How to assemble :
1. Print out pages downloaded from site
2. Cut out and laminate individual pieces for durablity / you could also print on cardstock
3. Paste activity pages inside the file folder
4. Store individual pieces in a envelope pasted on the file folder or create paper pockets
File your new folder game in a location where your child can have easy access.
Some of the file folders that I have created for K are downloadable free of charge from these sites;
If you and your child cannot get enough of file folder games and want better variety and more options, I will highly recommend these books with ready to use file folder games in colour.
Here are some of the file folder games that I have created from titles above :
File Folder Games are an excellent and economical way to introduce and review concepts with your preschooler, while having alot of fun at the same time. One word of 'caution' though, once you start to introduce file folder games to your child, you will probably find that he/she will always be asking for new file folder games to play
