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!

Dye Eggs

I know most people will have dying Easter eggs in their heads as possible activities around Easter time, but I wanted to make sure it was on everyone's radar.

There are lots of kits to dye eggs you can buy at the store. There are kits with glitter, stickers, even outfits! (see below) You can also do some home-made dyes. The first thing you want to do is either blow out eggs or hard-boil eggs. You want to do the boiling with plenty of time before you dye so they can cool completely. 

This is a fun time to talk about colors--all things colors. Tint, shades, color mixing, etc. Have lots of fun!
