Welcome!

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!

Nutter Butter Snow Man


My mother-in-law randomly gave us some Nutter Butter cookies. As I looked at them, I thought, "snowman!" So we took our best shot at creating a snowman out of our Nutter Butters. I think they kind of ended up looking more like ghosts than snowmen...but we had fun and the kids enjoyed eating them.

AGE RANGE
Old enough to be able to decorate the snowman. Kaitlyn is 2.5 and spread the frosting and decorated herself. If your child is too young for spreading frosting, you could spread for her and let her decorate.

SUPPLIES
  • Nutter Butter cookies
  • Chocolate chips or other candy for eyes and buttons (like raisins--thanks Kristy!)
  • Pretzels, Tootsie rolls, or some other candy for the arms
  • White frosting
  • Knife for spreading frosting
ACTIVITY
  1. Spread or have your child spread frosting on the Nutter Butter.
  2. Decorate as desired.
  3. Eat!

Yummy! My son says he likes snowmen as much as ghosts, and ghosts as much as snowmen--so either way it's good to go!
