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!

Glitter Fireworks

What child does not love glitter? I think all children love glitter. And most moms fear glitter--oh the mess. But come on, the mess isn't that bad. Plus you can do things like put the glitter in a shaker to make it less messy.

This is a simple and fun glitter activity. It makes a fun art project and works fine motor skills.

You simply give your child a glue bottle and have him make firework lines. Then sprinkle your fireworks with glitter! Fun, quick, and engaging.

I tried this activity out with my 4 year old and 2.5 year old this morning and it was a HUGE hit! Thanks for the fun idea! I drew the outline of the fireworks with a white crayon (2 for the 2.5 yr old, and 3 for the 4 yr old - who then drew a few more herself), then they traced the lines with glue(a glue stick for the younger and Elmers for the older). And they added the glitter themselves.
