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!

Simple Summer Fun: Easy Crafts
The final installment of Simple Summer Fun this year is on Easy crafts. There are all kinds of easy-to-make crafts that you can purchase. Foamies brand has a whole lot (as pictured here). Craft supply stores (like Joannes, Michaels, Hobby Lobby, etc.) have a variety of kits you can buy that are ready for your child to assemble.
These are simple because you don't have to do any more prep than purchasing the item. The downside, in my eyes, is that these kits cost more money than it would be for you to assemble a craft yourself. But, hey, sometimes time is money, right?
So if you are wanting to do something but don't want to put a lot of brain power or time into it, try walking through your local craft supply store and seeing what they have to offer.
