Free printable house coloring pages - a wonderful resource for teachers, homeschoolers and parents. Also a fun and educational way to entertain kids. Houses Coloring Page – When I was a little girl I used to spend hours drawing houses and floor plans that went with them. I still remember my Dad walking to the end of our very long farm lane driveway to get the weekend newspaper. As soon as he brought it in I would fling it open in search for the “homes” section. Back in the day, they would have pages of house renderings and the corresponding floor plan designs – trying to entice all the farm folk to become city slickers. To this day I have no idea what it was that drew me to draw page after page of houses but I know I had books full of my designs. At one point I was seriously considering becoming an architect but then my school guidance counselor told me all the math credits I’d need to get into University – let’s just say that math wasn’t my strong suit. Eventually the dream of being an architect faded but I never lost my joy of drawing houses. Now that same joy seems to have been passed down to my daughter who loves drawing, especially the bricks on the buildings.

I’ve made two designs. The first printable is a coloring page full of houses. The second printable has houses but also an option for kids to draw their own house too – a wonderful resource for teachers, homeschoolers and parents. Also a fun and educational way to entertain kids.

Home Book Club Card

Home Book Club Card – In my recent post Certificate of Awesomeness I confessed to my parenting “oops” when my daughter didn’t get a card of congratulations from her teacher for reading 100 books.  As you know, Noelle did indeed read 100 books and I created a certificate of awesomeness to help fix my blunder.  In the same vain, we really work hard to make sure Noelle is a confident reader and yesterday after school she spent about an hour reading. Both my husband and I were impressed by this desire to read without being prompted and Michael had a great idea to encourage this positive behaviour – like the “karma card” from another one of my posts, why not have a home book club where a reward is given after reading 10 books (this does not include her books that we read for school). Noelle loved the idea too so I spent the morning creating a Home Book Club card. I’ve created two versions, one called the “Home Book Club” for families to use, and then I made one called the “Kids Book Club” that can be used by teachers, counsellors, kids clubs, camps, libraries, etc.
