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!

Rhyming Cards

Today is Dr. Seuss's birthday! In honor, I thought a rhyming game was appropriate. 

This is simple. You print off two pictures that rhyme. These cards have "duck/truck", "bee/tree", "goat/boat", "fish/dish", and "mouse/house."

You then have your child color the pictures, cut them out, mix the cards up, and match the words that rhyme. 

Simple and fun!

While this game is simple enough, it is not uncommon for children to have a difficulty with rhyming. Stress that words that rhyme sound the same at the end of the word, not the beginning.

Rhyming has been more difficult than other things for my almost-5-year-old son to learn. He has it, now, but at the beginning of the school year he was choosing words that began with the same sound. Great activity for Dr. Seuss's birthday!
