“Education begins at home.”

~Geoffrey Holder

If you are a parent looking to supplement your child’s learning with activities, worksheets, and games, then this website is for you. Or perhaps you’re a teacher in need of quick, reliable, and quality resources that are free and easy to use during the hectic day in the classroom.

Either way, welcome!

I am happy you’re visiting Planes & Balloons – a site full of educational printables for teaching your children or students!

My name is Kristina, the author, and creator of Planes & Balloons.

And just like many of you, I am also a mom of two school-aged children always looking to supplement their learning.

I hold a Master’s degree in psychology, as well as numerous certificates in graphic and web design. I’ve always worked with children before becoming a mom myself, whether in preschool, kindergarten, or special education classrooms.

Education has simply always been my passion!

I care deeply about the quality and depth of knowledge my children receive, perhaps sometimes a bit too much (if there is such a thing). And just like the quote at the very top, I also believe that our children’s passion and attitude towards learning can only be instilled at home.

That is why I started this website – to make printables and worksheets I can use with my kids when I see they are hungry (and ready!) for more.

And I hope you will find a good use for them too!

So whether you’re a homeschooling family, a preschool or kindergarten teacher, or a busy mom trying to help your children improve their handwriting or math skills, there’s something for everyone.

So go ahead, make yourself comfortable here, and come back often.

You’ll find free coloring pages for you and your kids, worksheets for learning, and seasonal prints and activities to celebrate the changing seasons.

And in case you have special requests or needs for printables, feel free to contact me here.
