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!

Color Matching--Easter Style

Age Range: 1-4 years old

Materials:
  • plastic easter eggs
  • cardboard egg carton
  • crayons/markers
Prep:

color insides of the egg spaces in the carton to match as close as possible the colors of the plastic eggs you have

Activity:
Show your child how to put the yellow egg in the yellow hole. Practice with a few eggs and then step back for your child to do it themselves. If your child struggles simply say "no, not there, where does that yellow egg go?" and praise him when he puts the egg in the correct hole.

*For us this was surprisingly a big hit. I just knew my son needed practice with colors but he really latched onto this game. He completed it 3 separate times later in the day too!

This does sound like a lot of fun!

Do you allow guest posts?? I recently did a poetry activity with my almost three-year-old and blogged about it.
