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!

Crepe Paper Letters

This last week was Brayden's birthday. My Mom was over helping Brayden decorate for his party (he loves to put 2 foot sections of crepe paper all over the house). She put this giant letter "B" on the window. I thought that was fun, but didn't think much more of it.

I left it up, and started noticing how enthralled McKenna was with the giant letters on our window. It struck me that this is a great idea for something fun and different when teaching a specific letter! So if you do a letter of the day/week/month/whatever, you could put a large letter out of crepe paper up. 

It is fun and interesting because it is different. It is attention getting. I think this is especially effective for the two year old who is very interested in letters and just learning to identify them. McKenna talks about these large letters every time she sees them.
