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!

U Words

This is something Brayden made in preschool last year. It is a simple activity to learn about the letter U, talk about rain, and do some fine motor practice while also working on gluing skills.

Age Range
Preschoolers through Kindergarteners. Some older toddlers might be able to do this, too. If you have an older child do this, challenge him by having him cut around the rain drop, not just a rectangle around the raindrop.

Supplies Needed
  • Paper with umbrella on it
  • Paper with raindrops with pictures of U items--including the letter U
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Crayons
  1. Have your child color the pictures. Be sure to talk about the words and the "U" sound they start with.
  2. Have your child cut out the rain drops.
  3. Have your child glue the raindrops onto the picture.
