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!

Blast from the Past: No Bake Turkey Cookies {plus Spinoff}

We recently made Raegan's no-bake turkey cookies and of course the kids loved them. A whole lot. What's not to love? Sugar, sugar, sugar.

We also recently went to story time at the library, where they made something similar:

I thought that was a great way to lessen the sugar impact if desired. Yes, I was a weird mom squeezing in there to get a picture of the turkey with my phone :) All for you people! All for you. 

This cookie is one half of an oreo, candy corn, and a Hershey's Kiss. You could do a malt ball instead of the kiss. The kiss is stuck on using white frosting (when we made our turkey cookies, I had some green frosting already made so we used that instead! Kids don't care).

I made those turkey cookies too (Raegan's) with the same result - lots of love from the kids! But it was too much sugar for me! :) I really like the modified version because it's a teensy bit more teeth-friendly. My older son is under dentist's orders not to have a lot of the hard or chewy candies, which leaves out candy corn but the rest of the modified version would be okay. ;
