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!

Sponge Painting Fall Leaf Picture

This is something Kaitlyn did last year as a two year old. This is a great activity for children in that age range because they can make a picture that they can recognize--it turns out similar to how they pictured it. It is also great for children of all ages because all children love to paint :)

  • Sponges
  • Paint
  • Picture
  • Crayon
  • Paper plates
Cut a sponge into square or rectangle shapes. Set out some paint on paper plates. 

Have your child draw a tree trunk in the middle of the paper.

Have your child dip the sponge in paint and put it on the paper around the "trunk" to make leaves.
