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!

Ordering Objects

For math homework, Brayden was supposed to do some ordering games. The goal here was to teach about sizes and positional words. I decided our three little Christmas trees would work well for this game.

Three items of distinct sizes.

Vocabulary to Practice
  • biggest
  • middle-sized
  • smallest
  • first
  • between
  • last
  • next to
Have your child do different activities ordering the objects. Be sure to use your target vocabulary. "Put the trees in a line from biggest to smallest." 

Line the items up. Have your child describe what he sees. "The biggest tree is first. The smallest tree is last. The middle-sized tree is in between the biggest and smallest trees."

Fun and simple math!
