Some Free Printables to send to your Sponsored Children

With limitations on what we can send in the mail to our children, I am always looking for printable papers that will fall under the guidelines put in place by Compassion:

"Regrettably packages cannot be sent. Because of strict mailing and customs regulations in our various countries, letters that are not flat, are not made of paper, or are larger than 8-1/2" x 11" and 1/4" thick can delay an entire shipment of sponsor correspondence in customs for weeks. View a list of items you may send your child.  Please remember to include your sponsor number and your sponsored child's name and number on any item you send."

I linked to this site in my last post, but you need to know more about them!

Calvary Curriculum is my favorite Bible/Sunday School lesson site and it has an updated webpage with lessons in English and in Spanish.  There are coloring pages, word searches, true and false questions and much more!  There are 325 lessons going from Genesis to Revelation in pdf format.  They have new 2yr-Kindergarten pages as well as the Grades 1-6 that they've had for years.  Excellent resource!

I found this next one just the other day.

Frecklebox, a company that sells great personalized products (Super-Beautiful's Lunchbox came from them with the help of Groupon), also has free customizable coloring pages where you can insert the name of your child.  They're geared to younger children and some of them do include English text that you can't customize, but there are lots to choose from.  I'm planning to send my younger girls the mermaids and boys the rockets.  There's just something about having your name right there as part of the page!

There is a world of free printables out there, and I'd highly recommend you check out Michelle's blog, Blogging from the Boonies where she has several letter writing posts and a great list of items her family has sent to their sponsored children.

Happy writing!!!
