If, like so many of us, you find yourself staying at home with your kids for the next little while, you may be looking for fun and simple activities to help pass the time. Over the next few weeks, we’ll continue to share round-ups of some of our favorite crafts, activities, and projects from the past ten years of Handmade Charlotte’s archives. Today we wanted to start things off with a whole bunch of ready to use free printable projects!
These adorable dominos are black and white just like the originals but you get to match playful images instead of dots!
