I LOVE DJ Inkers clipart and fonts! When I was teaching I was often known as the Queen of clipart! I loved to use different fonts and add fun clipart to everything I printed. All of the clipart in this post – in fact most of the clipart I have used in my whole blog has been from DJ Inkers. I also have an embarrassing amount of fun fonts, and my favorites are from DJ Inkers!

This is a sample Kindergarten schedule. Parents often ask for a general idea of how the day will go, and it’s a lot cuter with the clipart!
I used to ask the children to draw a self portrait on the first day of school.
You are probably familiar with this beehive rhyme. I made this easy, fun project using Kidillywinks clipart too! I like this simple project because although it is very easy, it gives you a chance to observe the children’s cutting skills and they can practice counting forward and backward. In my classes the kids always had a wide range of previous experience and expertise in academic stuff. I also liked doing some fun, simple projects to help the children relax and gain confidence in those first long days of school.
I just printed out the beehive and bees, then I taped a fold and tuck baggie onto the back of the beehive.
Just for fun I cut the door so it would open and you can see the bees inside the beehive.
Here is the master
I used to make a lot of simple board games for the children to play at centers. Playing games is such a good way to encourage taking turns and cooperating. Moving a game piece requires one to one correspondence, using dice or spinners gives practice recognizing numerals or standard configuration of dots. It always made me smile that I could give the kids the exact same game with different clipart on it and it seemed like a new game! Here is a sample of a simple board I liked to use.
Here is it with some Kidillywinks back to school clipart added.
This game reinforces naming shapes.
Adding Kidillywinks fall clipart makes it fun to name letters!
I hope you all enjoy the rest of your summer!
Good luck on the raffle!
