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!

Counting Sheep

A few weeks ago we got the cutest book from the library, The Sheep Fairy. It's a bit silly, perhaps not quality literature, but cute nonetheless :)

After reading it since we were also working on number sense and counting we decided to make some sheep to count.

  • cotton balls
  • glue
  • construction paper
  • crayon
  1. Draw small circles on the paper and have your child put a dot of glue in each circle.
  2. Have your child place a cotton ball on each dot of glue.
  3. Draw an oval for a head on one side of each cotton ball and 4 sticks for legs. If your child can scribble feel free to guide him/her in drawing their own sticks for legs on the bottom of the cotton balls.
  4. Have fun counting sheep. Feel free to include as many or as few as you and your child want!
