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!

Baby Ghost

-take a scrap of white fabric and ball it up
-take a second scrap of white fabric and wrap it around the balled fabric, securing it at the bottom of the ball with a piece of yarn or a hair tie.
-draw eyes and an open mouth on the ghost (feel free to make it as scary or friendly looking as fits your child's age and maturity level)

Sing this song while waving the ghost puppet around to touch each body part.
*This is a great way to distract a squirmy baby or toddler during diaper changes!

Baby ghost, baby ghost
Flying through the air.
Baby ghost, baby ghost
Touching your hair.

(Move puppet back and forth in front of toddler.)

(Have ghost touch toddlers hair.)

Baby ghost, baby ghost
Flying down low.
Baby ghost, baby ghost
Touches your toe.

(Bring hand with puppet down low.)

(Bend down and touch ghost to toddlers toe.)

Baby ghost, baby ghost
