File Folder Games

Having several children to teach at once is a challenge! I often find that they need individual attention at the same time and they get frustrated as they have to wait for me to finish with their siblings.


I thought about purchasing the Preschool Activities in a Bag ebook at Currclick but I need something to occupy each of them and they are all at different levels, so I made some file folders instead.

Penguin Hat Match

Pizza Numbers

Dress the Bear

Math Facts

Flower Garden


This was my first time and while it is a simple concept, it takes a while to cut, tape (or laminate with packing tape), and add Velcro to everything. I know that's also because I'm trying to make several of them for three children so I'm driving myself crazy, lol.

I found most, if not all of these from Preschool Printables and Crafty Chic.

Nuh's Ark


Note: There was a picture on the Noah's Ark file for the Prophet Nuh, Alayhi Salaam, so I discarded it and just used the animals.

Assalamualaykum,
these are great, maashallah. I hope they use them a lot, as you've put so much effort into making them.

JazakILLAH Khairin Sis,

I hope so too, lol. So far, so good. They are fighting over them.

Take care,

Assalaam-o-alaikom,
Those are wonderful, mashaAllah. I'm tempted to make some for my daughter too.

Wa 'alaikum as salaam Umme Yusuf,

They are fun and educational, that's for sure. If nothing else, she might like the sound of the velcro, lol.

Take care,
Ramadan Mubarak,

As salaamu 'alaikum Umm Abdul Basir.

They probably don't take nearly as long as lapbooks! I'm not so good at those and have only done about four since I've been homeschooling, lol.

Take care,
wa salaam,
