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!

Handprint Sun

Age Range: 1 and up

  • yellow finger paint
  • paper
  • hands
  1. Draw a circle in yellow paint/crayon
  2. Paint your child's hands with yellow paint
  3. Have your child put their handprint all around the edges of the circle to color it in and create the rays of the sun with their fingers
*Tip: turn the paper so they can get their fingers pointing outward the entire way around. I thought of this after the fact, so our sun's rays only point upwards :)

What kind of paint did you use for this?

We used Ikea finger paints. They worked great and washed off easily just like they should.
