Can you tell I'm having fun with these? The novelty will wear off soon, and we'll also have a new little one to keep us plenty busy around here in just a few weeks...so I'm trying to create what I can before my quiet naptimes are filled with the unpredictable schedule of a newborn!
I fell in love with these tool graphics while browsing through http://www.mygrafico.com/, and the very next day they had a 40% off sale – Yay!
With two little boys who love tools, I couldn’t resist using these as my next “learn to use Photoshop” project. There’s still room for improvement, but it sure is fun learning! (Alex had a lot of fun helping me change the color on the wrenches, too!)

If you can’t tell from the pictures, here’s what you can download:
- colors cards
- shadow matching
- size sequencing
- finish the pattern cards – you can keep the sheets whole or cut around each patterning box and put these on a ring
- letter finder
- count and clip cards
- shape matching
- 4 part puzzles
- Race To The Toolbox game
- color the hammer
- circle the picture that is different
I’m just going with what works for Alex at this age and stage. Hopefully some of you can use these with your little tool-lovers, too! Enjoy!
I don’t think it would be fair to post this without crediting a few wonderful moms who share their own pages. Their creativity has sparked the ideas for some of these pages. Thanks, ladies!
