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!

Rainbow Crayons!!

Ever wonder what to do with all of those broken pieces of crayon that pile up? Make rainbow crayons! It's super easy, very quick, and fun to use to color. I let the girls choose their own combinations. We heated the oven to 300. They are done as soon as the wax melts (about 5 minutes). If you continue to let them "cook", they will blend into one color. So if you want to keep the rainbow effect, keep an eye on them. Let them cool completely and then peel the paper off.
