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!

Watermelon Crepe Paper Pic

My son brought this activity home from preschool (above, age four) and Kindergarten (below, age five). I figured if it is good enough for both teachers, it is good enough to post here!

Supplies Needed:
  • paper
  • red crepe paper
  • green crepe paper
  • black marker/paint OR actual watermelon seeds
  1. Draw a half circle for your child. If your child is able, have him cut it out. If not, you cut it out.
  2. Draw a line to divide the flesh from the rind.
  3. Have your child tear or cut red crepe paper to glue in the flesh section.
  4. Have your child tear or cut green crepe paper to glue for the rind section.
  5. Glue on seeds or add black paint dots for seeds.
