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!

Pom-Pom Spring Chick

This is a fun little craft Brayden brought home from school at the end of his egg unit. It is simple and something you can use to decorate for spring with!

You could adapt this as young as a toddler, but the most rounded learning will come for the preschoolers and up.

  • Yellow pom-poms--one small and one large
  • Styrofoam egg carton
  • Orange paper
  • Black marker
  • Glue
  1. Before you begin, gather supplies. Cut egg carton up so each section is individual.
  2. Have your child cut the edges of the egg carton section to look like a cracked egg shell edge.
  3. Have your child glue the large pom-pom in the egg.
  4. Have your child glue the small pom-pom on top of the large one.
  5. Have your child cut out an orange diamond shape for the beak and glue it on.
  6. Have your child make two eyes with the black marker.
  7. Let glue dry and then display it somewhere!
