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!

Simple Shape Find

The other day I wanted to do a shape activity, but didn't want to take a lot of time to prep it. I came up with this. I simply took a piece of paper and drew several shapes on it. They aren't perfect (as you can see). Then I told my children to color the diamonds on the page. This picture is the one I did for my 6 year old. It was rather simple for him. I did fewer shapes on the page for my 4 year old, and even fewer for the 2 year old. 

If you wanted the shapes to look nicer, you could definitely make this in Word with the shape tools and print it off.
