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.

Independence Day Books

Here are some great books for Independence Day!

ABC of America by Kim Bellefontaine
ABC of America
Fun for the younger readers who are just learning their ABCs.

How to Bake an American Pie
I love, love, love this one. I am someone who very much loves my country and very much loves the history of it. This book pays great tribute to the founders of this country as well as the immigrants who built it up. 

Scrambled States of America by Laurie Keller
The Scrambled States of AmericaThis is a great book for learning about the geography of the states. Geography can be a difficult subject for young children. This book is silly and interesting to the children, so they pay close attention!

The Journey of the One and Only Declaration of IndependenceSimilar to the book above, this book is able to teach about history (another tough subject for young children) in an interesting manner. 

A is for America by Tanya Lee Stone
A Is for America
This is another fun "American" alphabet book.

So we found The Journey of the One and Only Declaration of Independence at our library. It's marketed for 9-12-year-olds, but my (young) 5-year-old sat through the whole reading and was very interested. It's well-written and entertaining and full of historical information. My son said he liked it: "It has war." Ahem.
