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!

Toilet Paper Roll Penguins

I have been saving toilet paper rolls for months now. I just knew someday I would want them. The day came! 

I was searching around for fun penguin ideas and found this one. I will give a brief synopsis, but will direct you to the website I found the idea at because it gives instructions.

You will go to DLTK's website and print off the printable page.

Have your child color it. Then have your child cut it out. Brayden (5) was able to cut all of it out, but there were things that proved too technical for Kaitlyn's (3) cutting skills.

You will then glue things together. I also decided to add a cotton ball to the penguins tummy for some texture. You can unroll cotton balls. Here is a photo:

The top picture is an unrolled cotton ball and the bottom is a regular cotton ball. One cotton ball will easily do two penguins. 

We also used "googly eyes" instead of the paper eyes.

You just glue it all together and you are done! Easy as that. My kids have had fun playing with their little penguins.
