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!

Paper Bag Puppets

A great way to enhance learning is to make a puppet to go along with what you are talking about. Children love crafts and they love puppets. Are you talking about the letter F? Why not make a Fox? Maybe you are learning about bears this week and want to make a bear puppet. And the great news for you is that the internet is full of instructions on how to make these.

Enchanted Learning has some great instructions for some paper bag puppets: http://www.enchantedlearning.com/crafts/puppets/paperbag/

DLTK is another classic resource with some great puppets: http://www.dltk-kids.com/type/paper_bag.htm

If you don't find what you are looking for on these pages, go to Google and search "paper bag puppet ____ "(insert key word here, like Dog). You will get tons of ideas.
