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!

Bowling time!

I recently purchased a mini plastic bowling set for my girls for some fun indoor/outdoor play. My youngest is 14 months and oldest is 2. This is a great activity to practice coordination, balance, aim, crossing the body line, and gain arm strength. It's easy to set up, the concept is simple, and could be great for a rainy day as well. The girls love it and it only cost me $5 at Wal-Mart. Yay!There are lots of fun variations you can play as well: spinning/twirling and throwing, counting before rolling, tossing instead of rolling, using the opposite hand to roll/throw, etc.
Definitely worth the $5 around here! If you don't have them at your local Wal-Mart, Oriental Trading also offers them for $5.99.
