Educational Printables From Dover

I signed up for the Dover Samplers for the free graphics for my blog and other projects, but I found its a great place for educational printables and games for kids.    Here's a few I found recently.  Dover doesn't keep these up very long though, so if you think you'll use them, download them before they're gone!

Collecting Items for Our Church VBS

This year our church will be doing a Galilee themed VBS, and we are collecting first century items.  If you can help provide any of these please contact me at ecarian @

*Starred items can be loaned.  Though blankets, tablecloths, sheets and pillows will be used in a way which may get them dirty or stained, so I hesitated to mark those as loans.

Buckets or tubs*
Any type of net in white, brown, or black (fishing, sports, decorative, etc.)
Ocean sounds cassette or CD*
Possibly other nautical items*

Pillowcases (any type or pattern)
Sheets or blankets (un-patterned)*

Tablecloths (un-patterned)*
Anything woven:  Woven mexican blankets, woven rugs,  placemats, coasters, reed mats, etc.*
Throw pillows
Fabric scraps
Leather scraps
Burlap Scraps

Plastic Plants*
Live plants*

Onion Peels
Walnut shells

Anything else that would look awesome in 1st Century Galilee!
