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!

Paper Pieces Sun

It is summer around here (or at least getting there). This is a fun activity for the sun that Brayden did in Kindergarten this year. It is a sun made from different cut pieces of paper. The pices are cut in various shapes: trapezoids, triangles, rectangles, diamonds, etc. That puts this activity covering fine motor skills, color skills, shapes, and gluing skills.

  • Paper to glue yellow papers onto (the blue paper in this picture)
  • Yellow papers of various shades. You might also do gold as shown here
  • Scissors
  • Pencil
  • Glue

Have your child draw a circle on the base paper. This will be the circle the yellow pieces go into.

Have your child cut out yellow pieces of paper. If your child is too young to cut, do this ahead of time and talk about the shapes as you glue.

Have your child glue the pieces into the circle for to create the sun!
