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!

Snow Painting

Thanks to Val for the great idea!
For our first real snow in possibly 20 years, Val gave us the great idea to do some snow painting. It's easy and really fun!
All you need is a spray bottle or 2, water, food coloring, and snow!
Mix together and have fun! The more food coloring the better, in my opinion. I made 2 mistakes: not dark enough (but I wasn't going back inside to fix it at that point) and I chose blue. If I'd gone darker, blue would have been fine. But since everything takes on a blueish color anyways when it snows, it didn't show up as well as I'd hoped.

Giving her snowman a snow scarf!

I LOVE this idea! We are outside in the snow almost every day. We are usually sledding, shoveling, and building in the snow. I love the artistic bent to this.

Keep the snow learning activities coming!!
