Tips for using free printables

As a busy parent, I hate doing the same thing more often than I absolutely have to!

That’s why I love page protectors and dry erase pockets for printables.

Slip the printable in, let your child use a dry or wet erase marker, and you can reuse the printable time and again!

Kids love doing the same thing multiple times as they try to master the skill. You can also tuck the printables away with your holiday decorations and bring them out again next year!

Dry erase pockets are basically super strength page protectors. They’re a lot more durable for repeated use.

Clipco Dry Erase Pocket Sleeves Assorted Colors (6-Pack)
  • VERSATILITY - This pack of 6 dry erase pocket sleeves or worksheet sleeves are perfect for protecting and reusing student worksheets. Measuring 14...
  • COLORS - In this pack you will receive 1 blue, 1 yellow, 1 orange, 1 green, 1 red and 1 pink sleeve
  • HIGH QUALITY - Made with high grade plastic and double sewn edges these worksheet sleeves are made to last. Features a convenient marker pen holder...

If you really want to protect your printables, grab an at-home laminating machine. They pay for themselves in about 10-20 uses, compared to going to a copy shop, and you don’t have to drag your kids to the store!
