I Can Play It! Songbook

The Friend magazine has been printing simplified children's songs since January 2012. Now that my children are beginning to play the piano, I wanted to put all those songs in one place to encourage them to use them.

Project Supplies:
printer and paper
sheet protectors
3-ring binder (or 3-prong folder)
I Can Play It! songs (this link is for the plain black and white copies)

Project Instructions:
Slip into sheet protectors
Insert in binder

Note: If you want to go fancy with the full-color PDF versions, it gets trickier: Go to the Friend, open each magazine, starting with January 2012, find the song in the Table of Contents (use the previous link to know the name of the song you're looking for), and click on the song title. For most of 2012, you then look at a bar on the right. Go to download, then click PDF for the color edition. For 2013, you will see the PDF. Just click (click to view larger) and print.


  1. Good for you! (And congratulations on being the first entry).

  2. I love this idea. I'd like to do something like this...someday. :)
