Kids’ Holiday Fontsquirrel Typefaces!

This month, my free fonts spotlight focuses on some fun fonts to use in Christmas projects for kids! There are quite a few lists out there of free fonts that feature candy cane letters or letters with snow on them. But I looked for fonts that evoked the holidays yet are easy for young readers to read (including some simple script faces). I found some art deco faces, old-time serif faces, hand-written and bouncy faces, plus some retro scripts, and even a readable blackletter font.

Today’s selection is from fontsquirrel, another trustworthy source that vets all their fonts and gives credit to the creators. Download links are after the infographic.

Use these fun, free, handwritten fonts for Christmas and winter holiday projects for kids. Download them on fontsquirrel.com.

New Products: Winter Holidays

I recently completed the third set of drawings, Swedish Jul, for my Winter Holidays series and set them up in my TPT store. They are a lot of fun to research! They join the clip art sets for Japanese New Year and Irish Christmas. These clip art sets come with a brief overview of the objects and how they are used during the celebrations.

They are also available in my creative market store as vector clip art.

Spoonflower

This month, I ordered spoonflower fabric samples in order to release the patterns in my shop for sale. With variations in each of the Summer Camp designs, as well as a few Holiday designs plus insect patterns, I will have 35 patterns available for purchase. First I have to make some adjustments to line weight and scale.

Elsewhere, in order to make everything easier to find, I moved all of my illustrated zazzle products to a single storefront. Then I organized the categories and collections so it’s easier to find products with the same design theme. Collections have a neater page appearance than Categories, which is better for linking from other places. [edit – I have since closed my zazzle shops.]

Finally, I revamped all of my thumbnail images on teacherspayteachers so my storefront looks more unified.
