Welcome!

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!

Pussy Willows


This activity is quite common in preschool and Kindergarten classes. It is simple, but involves paint and children love paint!

SUPPLIES
  • White paper
  • Brown crayon
  • Gray paint
  • Optional: Paint shirt and tablecloth. Paper towels also help keep painted fingers off of clothes :)
ACTIVITY


  • You might want to start by showing your child either an actual pussy willow if you have them by your or by showing them a picture of a pussy willow so they know what they are making.
  • Have your child draw three stems with the brown crayon.
  • Have your child dip his finger in the gray paint and dot the stems with it. 
  • Let dry!
POEM
You might add this poem to your activity:

Pussy Willow

Close your eyes
And do not peek
And I'll rub Spring
Across your cheek.
Smooth as satin,
Soft and sleek.
Close your eyes
And do not peek.
