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!

Learning Boxes

You can make learning time very simple by having a learning box set up. This makes gathering common supplies very easy and also creates a situation where you can teach your child some personal responsibility and help her learn about cleaning up after herself when a project is finished. 

This is a great time of year to buy these supplies since stores have them on super sale. You simply buy a pencil box. We got ours at Walmart for 50 cents each. Then you either buy or put in the supplies you want. We did crayons, scissors, a pencil, an eraser (pencil erasers are the first to go), and a glue stick. Brayden also has a ruler. Then, being the nerd I am, I whipped out my label maker and put their names on each box.

These are great for learning time at home and also for a child who is doing homework. Everything is in one neat box. You could even stock extra supplies in it ahead of time if you knew you would be using extra things (like glitter, tape, etc.).
