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!

Most of us are familiar with the Magnadoodle and possible with the Aquadoodle. I have a special fondness for the Aquadoodle Wall Mat. I've written before about the benefits of using a chalkboard or paper mounted on the wall to strengthen hands, arms, cross body lines, and help your child with pre-writing skills. We've been using the Aquadoodle to connect dots, practice drawing vertical and horizontal lines, and drawing shapes. It's a great place for preschoolers to practice writing their name or letters since it's very easy cleanup (none is pretty easy, right?).
And since it just uses water, no worries about spills. And mounting? Wall putty...super easy to move from location to location without leaving marks on the wall. Looking for an activity for kids while you are making dinner? You can use paintbrushes and water, or even let them "fingerpaint" with water minus the mess of paint.
I found mine at Target, but I also saw that AsSeenOnTV.com is offering a free Travel Doodle and pens when you buy the Wall Aquadoodle.
Hip-Hip-Hooray for another successfully spent dollar. :)
