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!

Circles and O's

This is a simple activity you can do to learn about several different things. You can talk about colors, the shape circle, or the letter O. I also thought you could turn this into an Olympic rings on the flag activity. Brayden did this (pictured) at preshool.

Toddler and up. You might find this appropriate for some pre-toddlers, also.

  • Paper
  • Paint
  • Paper Cup
  • Plate to put paint on
  • Gather supplies
  • Prep work area (tablecloth or whatever you use to protect your work space)
  • Prep child (aprons or whatever you do to protect clothing)
  • Pour paint onto plates (one color per plate)
  • Have your child dip the paper cup into the end (open end down)
  • Have your child stamp the paper with the cup
You could do this with a variety of items, including cookie cutters.

Awesome. Looks like something my son would enjoy, and we are going to be on the letter "O" next week!
