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!

More Color Sorting

Age Ranges: 1.5-5 years

  • paper
  • crayons
  • baskets/cups
  • puff balls

  • color pieces of cardstock or paper to match the colors of the puff balls
  • tape paper to the bottom of the baskets/cups
Just start sorting the puff balls by color and encourage your child to join in. Ask questions like "where does that go?" "what color is that?". If your child starts to put one in the wrong color say "no, not there" in a neutral tone. When he gets it right praise him. This activity is very simple but changing up the materials you use to teach colors and numbers can make it more fun.

*For a child with sensory issues this activity is great because the puff balls (we got ours at Target) are pretty fuzzy and feel odd.
