This blog is here for you to find fun learning activities to do with your children. We share great ideas we find and love on the Internet, as well as ideas we come up with on our own! We also like to share resources we find helpful.

To find ideas for your child, click on the age range blog label or on the theme/topic you are looking for (on the left side of the page). In each post, we try to list optimal age ranges for the activity, but you must judge for yourself if it is appropriate for your child. When you try an activity out, please comment and let us (and everyone else) know how your child liked it!

Number Squares

This is a fun, simple activity for working on numbers.

I haven't tried this with my 2.5 year old yet, but my 4 year old did very well with it. This is definitely appropriate for four and up. I would guess that most three year olds could do this. If your child is two, you can try it and see how it goes, but expect to give lots of guidance (which is fine).

  • Paper
  • Pen/pencil (or you can create on the computer and print)
  • Stickers (you can use stickers that go along with your theme for the week if you have one)
  1. Make a grid on a paper. Put six squares on the paper.
  2. Put different numbers in each grid. Initially, start with only two different numbers.
  3. Get stickers out.
  • Instruct your child to put the correct number of stickers in each grid.

I agree--2 year olds will probably need a lot of guidance. BUT I am going to try this with Charis. It's so nice to have lots of different ways to introduce and work on numbers!
