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!

The Kissing Hand: First Day of School

Brayden will be starting full-day school this year and is expressing some nervousness over it. He hasn't had an issue with starting preschool or Kindergarten. He says he doesn't want to leave me all day. All I can do is hug him because I feel the same way!

I wanted to come up with an idea to make the first day seem a bit easier and to do something special to let him know I love him and am thinking of him. As I said last Monday, I love the book The Kissing Hand. I think it is great for the first day of anything, especially school. We have been talking about that book and how I always love him even if I am not right with him. 

I saw this R & M Heart in Hand Cookie Cutter pictured above on Amazon and thought that was a great idea! Wouldn't that be a fun treat in his lunchbox the first day? 
I plan to do this for the first day. Either that or just do heart shapes I have already and just do the heart. 

*sniff.* My baby is growing up.
