To all of our stuck inside families, we are so glad to see that these free printables are getting so much love and use, and we hope your kids are finding them to be fun and engaging, too! We’re back with another batch of 10 free printables, this time focusing on games to go along with our Stuck Inside Series Games & Magic week! Our last two free printables blog posts, 20 free ABCs printables and 10 free coloring & drawing printables got a lot of activity from our readers, so we’re going to keep turning them out as fast as we can to help everyone get through this one day at a time.

Game play fosters memory retention, social, and critical thinking skills!


Our 10 free printables this week include many variations of bingo/scavenger hunts to do at home (great for independent play!), as well as memory games, drawing challenges, and Tic Tac Toe. Print these out, grab some coloring tools, and let kids enjoy some activity sheets play time so you can go get some work done (or just enjoy some much needed moments of relaxation!)
