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!

Snowman Rice Krispie Treats

I got this idea from the Preschooler's Busy Book and added some decorations for fun.

  1. Make a batch of Rice Krispie Treats.
  2. Put coconut in a bowl.
  3. Spray hands with cooking spray or wet with water.
  4. Have your child roll three balls for the snowman.
  5. Have your child roll the balls in the coconut.
  6. Stack balls on top of each other to form the snow man.
  7. Put eyes, nose, buttons, arms, etc. on snowman. We used chocolate chips for eyes and buttons, pretzels for arms, and candy corn for noses.
This is a great activity for learning about circles, spheres, and size relationships. You need three different sized balls for each snowman. If you have your child help with making the rice krispie treats, it will be good math practice. These are also easy to do so the finished product looks nice. Brayden (4.5) and Kaitlyn (2.5) made the ones pictured. Brayden's is on the left, Kaitlyn's in the middle, then they both worked on the third.

We made three snowmen then put the rest in an 8x8 pan for normal treats.
