Since this blog is called “Confessions…” I have one.  When I first started homeschooling, I didn’t understand what a “File Folder Game” was. I downloaded all these fun games and just kept them in a manilla envelopes. It wasn’t until this year when we started Lapbooking, that I realized what a File Folder Game was! I immediately went and gathered my manilla envelope games, and put them into file folders and voila!
Here is a gathering of all the file folder games we did this year, just click on the Titles to download:

Shades of Color (to be used with paint chips): This is game I ended up making into a file folder game. You can download my color grid here, and I used a 1 1/4″ square punch to punch the colors out.

  1. I love file folder games. I heard of them when I taught first grade but never really tried them out. I have been using them with Madeline while attempting to homeschool this year and I love them! Thank you for sharing yours.

  2. Thank you so much for your wonderful ideas and easy downloads. I am in the process of creating some file folder learning for my 2 1/2 year old, and putting packets together of some educational fun for our road trip to NC this summer. 14 hours in the car! God Bless, Ashley
