Welcome!

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!

Shadows and Shadow Puppets

Image Source

This week, we are talking about shadows with it being Groundhog Day and all.

We started off with talking about our shadows, and since it was a nice and sunny (though cold) day, we went outside and watched our shadows. We ran and danced to see what our shadows would do. We also touched our shadows. It was fun to watch little 22 month old McKenna walk a while as she tried to catch up to it before finally just bending over and touching it.

Once we were done exploring our shadows, we were ready to try making shadow puppets. You can do this quite simply, but I found a fun website called Shadow-Puppets.com that has some fun ways to do different shadows. I am not all that creative with such things, so this was great.
