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!

Valentine Dump Truck Card

So many cute Valentine ideas are geared towards girls.  J made these Valentines cards for his cousins who would prefer trucks to hearts.  Candy always adds something special to the card too!

What you need:  Unopened box of candy and a few extra pieces of the candy, construction paper, cardstock, car stickers, marker, and glue

Prep:  I precut all the pieces of the truck for him to glue onto the cardstock and already had the "Happy Valentine's Day" message on the cardstock. 

J  put the shapes together to create the truck and added the box of candy last. 

The front of the card has a little road with some foam car stickers.  I thought it turned out pretty cute.
This is from Busy Bee Craft Kids.com .  They has a cute "Unloading some love" message for the card.  Of course, I didn't plan for the candy box to be glued on at a tilt like in the example (in effect, dumping its cargo).  Oops!
