Barbara J. Feldman
Dear Barbara,

If all has gone according to plan, I should be relaxing at sea today, on my way to Barcelona. In Barcelona we have tickets to a flamenco show, plans to eat tapas for dinner, and a city guide booked to show us around town. I’m really looking forward to seeing the Gaudi architecture. Are you familiar with it? Take a look at these pictures.

See ya on the Net,
Barbara J. Feldman

Printable Games Printable (** for premium members only)

Wherever you may go this summer (car, train, airplane, restaurant, Grandma’s house, campsite or hotel) these printable games just require a bit of planning to print out a stack of them before you leave. Be sure to give them a once over before heading out the door, however, as some require pencil or crayons and others need dice or scissors.

ABC Teach: Fun Activities
ABCTeach has both free and membership-required printables. On most of their pages, you’ll find the free resources at the top of the page, with the paid ones below. The printable games include coloring pages, crossword puzzles, dot to dot, word searches, printable crafts, folder games, printable dominoes, and (whew!) many more. I particularly liked the puzzles, which include Sudoku, mazes, number puzzles and tangrams (a geometric jigsaw-style puzzle that you print and cut.)

Activity Village: Printable Games
Highlights of the printable game collection from British site Activity Village include the classic Battleship game, memory matching games in a variety of themes, dominoes, file folder games and a few dice games such as Mountain, Skeleton, and What’s Your Number? Mountain is ideal for young players because of its simplicity, but has variations for older kids as well. You’ll find more games by following the “More Educational Games” or “Kids Games and Activities” links at the bottom of the page.

Dr. Mike’s Math Games For Kids: Printable Math Games
While some of these are worksheets, there are plenty of printables at Dr. Mike’s that do qualify as games. Here are two that caught my eye. Challenging Math Puzzle is a grid of eight cells. “All you have to do is arrange the numbers 1 through to 8 in the grid shown. The rules? No consecutive numbers should be next to each other, either horizontally, vertically or diagonally. Sounds simple? Have a go!” Traffic Jam is a printable version of the Rush Hour board game, where the object is to drive the red car off the top of the board (without hitting any other cars.)
