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!

C is for Caterpillar
I find it ironic that one of my favorite themes to do is insects when I absolutely, positively, HATE insects. Maybe I like to make insect crafts because they aren't real? I don't know.
This is a caterpillar with C words. Draw or print a series of circles on a page. Then give your child C words to color, cut out, and paste on the caterpillar's body.
If you have a younger child (toddler or younger), you will want to cut out the circles for your child. Some preschoolers will not be able to cut out a circle, either.
If you have an older child, have him draw pictures of C words rather than giving him pictures to color.
As you do the activity, talk about the letter C, the sound it makes, and say the words of the pictures you are drawing and coloring as you go.
