I’m Sandra and I’m a mom to a six year old little girl.

I think childhood is the time of intensive play, creativity, new discoveries, lots of memorable moments and magical creatures. :)

I’m passionate about hands-on learning activities for kids. I believe learning should be based on play as long as possible, that’s why I love creating cute and colorful printables to make it engaging and super fun!

Here you’ll also find science experiments and other activities for playful learning.


These are few of my favorite and most popular post so far:

Build a Bear Number Match

Snowman Counting Puzzles

Fish & Fishbowls Upper and Lower Case Letter Match

Trolls inspired Pod Houses

      Hi Patty! Please also check spam/trash folders. If you still can’t find the link to your printable, let me know and I’ll send it to your email manually. :)

  1. Tammie says

    Hi!!! Am I able to find you on Teachers Pay Teachers??? Just curious. If not, I’ll come back and purchase your Build a Bear resources. They are adorable!!!!

    • Sandra says

      Dear Susan, you should have gotten an email with a download link immediately. Sometimes the email will land in your SPAM folder or Promotions tab (if you’re using Gmail). So it’s best to check these folders if you haven’t gotten the email.

      I’ll also send you another email with the link just in case.

  2. Susan says

    Hi Sandra,

    It is not in my junk mail folder and no knew email has arrived. I did notice when I paid the paypal address had my email ending with .xa not .ca. I’m on the subscriber list and have picked up the freebies. Could it be that when I ordered my email was listed as .xa. Can you please check the email address? Only thing I can think of.

    Thank you,


    • Sandra says

      Hi Susan, you’ve received an email from my colleague. Looks like your email address was misspelled, that’s why you didn’t get any emails after your order.

      Best regards, Sandra

    Hi! I love the clip art bear you used for all of the build a bear activities. I’m always on the lookout for cute bear clip art. Did you create it? I’d love to purchase this bear clip art.
    Thank you.

    Dear Sandra,

    I’ve just bought a flower five senses match. Where can the pack be downloaded from?

    Thank you,
    Best regards,

    • Sandra says

      Hi Shannon!

      Thank you! I do have a teachers pay teachers store, but it’s kind of new and only some of the products have been added so far. I’m slowly adding them as I can. Here is the link.
      If you are interested in printables that aren’t there yet, you can tell which ones and I’ll try to add them quicker. :)

  5. Mary McNeel says

    I ordered the letter match bundle and I can find where to download it. It never asked for my email address. Could you please send to this email. * Thank you and I can’t wait to use this in my classroom.

    • Sandra says

      Hi Mary! I think the links were sent to the address that’s attached to your Paypal account. I just sent them to this email as well.:)

  6. Adrienne Dominic says

    I am unable to “checkout” the item I tried to purchase because I don’t have a paypal account and although it says I can pay with a cc, it doesn’t allow me to do that!

    • Sandra says

      Hi Adrienne, yes, I’m sorry, the only option is Paypal right now. I do also have a Teachers Pay Teachers store – you can use a credit card there. If the product you’d like to purchase isn’t there yet, just let me now and I’ll add it. Thank you.

    I have tried several times to acquire the pumpkin seed counting cards, but have not received the email after entering my email address. They would be great fun for my four year olds. Thanks

    • Sandra says

      Hi! Make sure to look at your ‘promotions’ and other tabs in you gmail inbox. Also, please check the spam and trash folders. If you still can’t find it, let me know!

    • Sandra says

      Hi! These products are printable PDF-s which are meant to be printed by you. I don’t send physical products by post.

  8. Katy says

    Hi Sandra,

    I purchased the birds and houses letter match yesterday and still haven’t received the download link. Can you help me? Thanks!

    • Sandra says

      Hi Kathryn,
      thank you for the order. I just sent you the download link by email. Please check your inbox.
      Regards, Sandra

        • Sandra says

          Hi Kathryn,

          I’m sorry to hear that. I don’t know what happened. My colleague sent you another email from a different address, hopefully you’ll get this one. Please also check your spam folder and if you see any of our emails in there, move them to your inbox, so next time they arrive without a problem.

          Let me know if you received the email this time.

          Regards, Sandra

  9. Jill says

    I have purchased the number match bundle but have been unable to download it. I can’t see where on your website that I can log in and see what I have purchased and try and download it again. Please assist! Jillxx

  10. Jill says

    Hi! Do you have a teachers pay teacher store? I love so many of your items but I can use a purchase order through there. Thank you.

  11. Melissa Connelly says

    I just bought my first item from your site. I went to send it to my printer, and it says I have used all of my downloads. I just bought it. I would like my purchase. Not sure what happened?

    • Sandra says

      Hi Melissa,

      thank you for your order. I just increased the number of times you can download the printable so you should be able to download it. When you go to the link to download the PDF, your browser might prompt you to “Open File” or “Save File”. If you select “Open” you will have to re-download it every time you wish to open it. If you download it to your computer you can open it as many times as you wish.

      If you have any more problems, please don’t hesitate to let me know.

      Regards, Sandra

  12. Grainne says

    I ordered the printable build a bear number match last night and paid through paypal but I have not yet received the link to download the product and print out.
    Item number 6454.
    Please can you let me know how to access this product?
    Many thanks,

    • Sandra says

      Hi Grainne,

      thank you for your order. I just sent you an email with the download link. Sometimes the receipt email with the download link ends in spam or junk folder by mistake. If you find it there, please move it to your inbox.

      If you have any other questions or problems, please don’t hesitate to let me know.

      Regards, Sandra

  13. Rosalinda Hernandez says


    I made a purchase yesterday for the following items:
    Bird Nest Number
    Match 1 Holiday Bundle
    Telling Time Bees
    and Flowers Match
    However, I never received my files for these activities. I really need them in preparation to return back to school.

    Your attention to this matter will be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you,
    Rosalinda Hernandez

    • Sandra says

      Hi Rosalinda,

      thank you for your order. Sometimes the automatic email with the receipt and download links gets stuck in spam/junk folder by mistake. I just sent you the download links in a separate email.

      If you have any other questions, please don’t hesitate to let me know.

      Regards, Sandra

      • Rosalinda Hernandez says


        Unfortunately, I never received my files you sent. Do you mind checking again, please?

        • Sandra says

          Hi Rosalinda,

          my colleague sent you the links in reply to one of the emails you sent him. This way you should get the email. Maybe for some reason you did not receive my email from yesterday.

          Regards Sandra

    • Sandra says


      thank you for your order. I just replied to you by email and sent you the download link. Please let me know if you somehow don’t receive the email.

      Best regards, Sandra

  14. Natasha says

    Hi Sandra,

    I similarly brought the build a bear and have a pay pal receipt for the 22nd of September but despite checking my junk daily. I have not received anything. Please may you advise me?

    Many thanks and I love the store!

    • Sandra says

      Hi Natasha! Thank you for you order! I’ve just sent you another email with your link. Your order email was different from this one, with which you logged in to comment, so please make sure to check the other one. :)

      If you have trouble finding it, let me know and I’ll send it to you again.
      Kind regards, Sandra

      • Natasha says

        Hi Sandra,

        I am so sorry but I am still having no luck. It isn’t in either email address inbox or junk mail folder. Please may you have another look?

        Kind Regards, Natasha

        • Sandra says

          Hi Natasha,

          that’s very strange. I noticed you placed the order from a different email address then the comment. I sent you another mail, this time using the email address you used for this comment. Hopefully this time the email will reach you. If not, I’ll use a different account to send the email. We will resolve this :)

          Let me know if you get the email this time.

          Best regards, Sandra

    • Sandra says

      Hi! I’ve just sent you an email with your download links. Please make sure to also check spam/trash folders. If you still don’t receive the email, please let me know and I’ll use a different account to send the email.

      Best regards, Sandra

  15. Shirley says

    Hi Sandra,
    I got the email and it does say Download 1, 2 and 3, however it does not open when I click on it.

    • Sandra says

      Hi Shirley,
      I’m sorry, I don’t know what you mean. After you click the download links I sent you, a window should open and prompt you to either open or download the PDF. I tested the links and they worked for me.
      I also noticed you downloaded the printables, so please let me know if this issue is resolved or not. If you’re still having trouble I’ll send you the printables as email attachments.
      Regards, Sandra

  16. Cath Bestley says

    Hi, I bought the addition and subtraction puzzle printable and they are not in my email – i’ve check the junk folder as well. Thanks

    • Sandra says

      Hi Cath,

      thank you for your order. I just sent you the download link. Please let me know if you somehow don’t receive the email.

      Best regards, Sandra

    • Sandra says

      Hi Marcie,
      your order was marked cancelled at first, I think that’s why you didn’t receive your download link right away. The email should’ve been sent by now. Let me know if you somehow still didn’t receive it. Thank you!

      Best regards, Sandra

  17. orlandoq67 says

    Hey there, I bought the number bundle with the fish bowls, flowers, and bears. I didn’t download the bear matching one because I didn’t need it at the time. Now that I go back and try and download it, it says it has reached its downloaded max. Can I get the link sent again?
