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: Popsicles

Making Popsicles is so simple, yet fun for the kids. They get to mix up this powder into a liquid, followed by time in the freezer and it comes out this solid piece of goodness. What's not to love?!?!? Here is a simple recipe I have for Popsicles:

  • one package Kool-Aid
  • one package Jell-O
  • 1 1/4 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup hot water
  • 3/4 cup cold water
  • 2 bowls
  • Spoon
  • Popsicle Molds
  • Optional: funnel. I like to use it, but it isn't necessary
  1. Mix dry ingredients in a bowl
  2. Measure 6 T of the dry ingredients into another bowl. Add the hot water. Add the cold water.
  3. Pour the into Popsicle molds and freeze.
  4. Store the remaining dry ingredients in an airtight container to use in the future. You could probably make Popsicles all summer from this one mix.
Again, no picture. I have a picture on my camera, but I can't use it because my computer is still out. Now the hard drive is dying...sigh. But I do like how the picture I pulled off the Internet has pictures of fruit in the background...that is a bit misleading, right? Maybe not for them, but it is for us!
