Peek & Find APPLE TREES

Peek and Find Apple Trees

We have a new Peek & Find featuring Apple Trees! Peek & Find is a great activity for for Tot Schoolers, Preschoolers, Kindergarteners and beyond. There are a few variations to this activity can easily grow with your child’s ability!

You can also add in some fun elements to the activity, or simply print, cut, and play! Below I will share the free printable, ideas for different levels of play, and fun variations.

There are two main elements of the Peek & Find activity.

The “FIND” board…

The “PEEK” cards…

Apple Peek & Find (1)

Print the board on plain paper, or cardstock if you plan to reuse it. Print the cards, on cardstock if possible and cut them out. Laminate if you plan to use these cards repeatedly.

A few options for play…

Option #1 {single player}

Print the Peek & Find board.

Print the cards and cut out.

Mix up the cards, choose one at a time and find the object on the Peek & Find board. Color, circle, or mark the object.

Option #2 {2 or more players}

Print a Peek & Find board for each player and one set of cards. Cut out the cards.

Flip over a card and race to see who finds the object first on their board. Using Dot Paint with this game is fun!

Winner keeps the card.

Person with the most cards at the end is the winner!

See a video of my daughter and I playing {we were using the SPRING theme board in this video} …

Option #3 {sensory, fine motor activity}

Create a sensory bin and bury the cards.

Use a fine motor tool {child tweezers} to dig for cards and pull them out and then find the object on the Peek & Find board and mark it.

Option #4 {gross motor activity}

Hid the cards around the room and challenge your child to find one card at a time and bring it back to the board, find it, mark it, and repeat! This is a great version for those of you with energetic younger kids!

      Bible Verse Printables ~ Letter A

      RLRS Letter A Philippians 2 5 Bible Verse Printables

      Our Raising Lil’ Rock Stars Bible Verse Printables for the Letter A are available to download for free!  This set is based on Philippians 2:5, “Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus.”  A is for ATTITUDE!  This sure is a lesson I need right along with the children I teach!  Having a Christ-like attitude is a daily struggle for me personally.

      We used the group version in my children’s church class of 4 & 5 year olds and really enjoyed it. 

      I am using the home bundle with Ladybug as a review, working on the verses again later on.  For example, in my class we are on the letter E right now, but at home we just worked on our review of letter A. She is in my children’s church class so she is getting the group teaching and then getting it again at home with me. Good thing she really likes it!

      Here’s a peek at our home work {most of these printables are in the bundle version}.

      Here she was coloring the coloring page, she LOVES to color.  She wanted to copy the poster graphic so you can see it sitting beside her.

      Cut and Glue the Verse ~ this is a great word work activity for her, identifying individual words and sounds she knows as well as the Bible verse as a whole.

      Here’s an Instagram video I shared of her when she was working on this activity, singing as she worked!

      She also enjoyed her verse bracelet at home.  She got one when we did it in Children’s Church awhile back too.  She and the other kids LOVE the bracelets! Yes, sometimes she wears it up on her big muscle.

      Here’s a shot of how we did the letter page at church, I have all of the kids sign it on the day they are there! I just love all of their little signatures.

      We have a banner at church, which you can see a glimpse of here on Instagram.  Here is the start of our home banner!

      Here’s the work Ladybug did at home…

      And, here’s Ladybug singing the verse for you!  The verse tune printables are only available in the bundle but you can hear the tune for Letter A in this video!  In case you don’t catch it, the tune is Are You Sleeping?

       

      The free version is ONLY for home use.  If you will be using these printables in a church setting, private group, co-op, preschool or other group you will need to purchase the group bundle here.
