As you may already know, I LOVE free stuff!!! The offer of something for free makes me feel like it’s my birthday. I get as excited as a child opening their birthday gifts, and sometimes I even squeal in delight. I have issues, I know that.
One of the awesome things about being a crafter has to be the abundance of amazingly useful printables. Thank goodness for the internet! The greatest thing about the internet + printables combination is that there are SO many FREE ones available!!!! So if you are feeling crafty but you don’t want to go to the craft store for supplies, or said craft store is closed (due to it being 10 o’clock at night) or you are a little strapped for cash, you can jump on the computer find a fun printable and away you go. Another great thing about printables is that they are usually things that you can do with young children.
I have built up a list of websites that have heaps of great printables and I thought I would share this list with you. These are the 7 best websites for FREE printables. Some of these printables are for crafts, some are for around the house and some are activities that you can do with young children. Have a look through them and let me know which ones you like best!
- Fazendo a Nossa Festa
This blog is stuffed full of hundreds upon hundreds of free printables. They are printables for themed parties. If you can think of a party theme then chances are pretty good that you can find a printable kit for it on this website. The original website isn’t in English but can be translated using your web browser. I would highly recommend that you put aside a significant amount of time to browse this site, you may get lost in the awesomeness!

Unless you have been hiding under a rock you will have heard of Pinterest. For those that havn’t really checked it out yet, I highly recommend you do (and follow me https://www.pinterest.com/eclecticHC/) . Pinterest is essentially and online pinboard, if you come across a website that you want to tag for later you pin it to one of your pinterest boards. Then when you decide to give that craft a go in 6 months time you won’t have to spend hours searching for it! You can also search pinterest to look for things that other people have pinned, for example if you type “free printable” into the search bar you will be presented with hundreds of different pins of free printables! You can refine your search to exactly what you are after to make it easier for you (and by easier I mean a smaller number of things to look through so you don’t get distracted by ALL the awesomeness!!!)
