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!

Foam Fish

This is another cute craft Kaitlyn did at playgroup this past year. It is a foam fish. 

Age Range
I think you can make this work anywhere from 1 on up.

  • Piece of foam
  • Scissors
  • Marker/pen/pencil
  • Stickers, jewels, etc. to decorate fish with 
  • Glue
  1. You first need a foam fish. Depending on the age and ability of the child, either you draw or have the child draw a fish on the foam.
  2. Also depending on the ability of the child, either you cut out or have the child cut out along the lines.
  3. Now is when any aged child can participate. Time to decorate the fish! For babies, you can pull the stickers off and give them to her to put on the fish. Toddlers can apply glue and put the decorations on the fish. 
Companion Book
This activity would be fun in conjunction with the Rainbow Fish.
