Patootie Folder Games!

When I was growing up, I remember watching my Mom sitting at the kitchen coloring Finch Family Games (anyone else remember those?) to make into quiet games for us. She even added glitter. She’s awesome. As I became a teacher, I borrowed those games and used them with my students. Since there weren’t many activities my students could do all by themselves, they LOVED these games. They could take as much time as they needed and it was quick and easy for me to check their work!

At home, we used them at church, on road trips and in the doctor’s office. It was fun to show off how much we knew and switch out the different folders we had.

Along with fully-finished folder games, we have DIY packs for sale where you can do most of the work yourself!


As Tawni and I started Patootie Learning Co I kept thinking about these folders and how much fun they would be for Moms to have now, so we created our own! They cover skills like matching, counting, and letters. They are perfect for beginning learners and are super durable! Each piece is laminated and use velcro to attach.

We sell them on Etsy, but in a few weeks we will be selling them at the Holy Cow Boutique March 22-25 at the Old PG Rec Center (65 East 200 South Pleasant Grove, Utah 84062)! We will also have a few brand new designs (that we don’t have photos of yet 🙂 ) that are cuter than ever! Thank you for following our journey and supporting us!! Happy learning!

He is here!


My handsome husband and I are excited to announce the birth of our son, Cyrus. We all made it through the somewhat dramatic birth and are on the mend and adjusting to life with a newborn. We love our baby Cy! We love his scrunchy face and rolls of chub. We love his smell and his baby sounds. And most of all, we love it when he sleeps for more than 2 hours in a row at night (bless you Cy!). Continue reading
