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!

Edible Acorns.... almost

Ok, so I would truly attempt to eat these acorns, but feel free to snack while crafting!

This was one of our autumn activities from last year. It’s fun, cute and easy prep (using things I already had around the house).
Before hand, I cut out a square with cardboard (the original activity said to use a paper bag, but I didn’t have any). I also drew the acorn onto the cardboard.

I first had J use a brown crayon to color the “hat” of the acorn and a white crayon for the bottom. He then glued the chocolate unto the hat and the oats onto the bottom. We focused on trying to fill the ENTIRE hat/bottom, making that the goal. At 30 months, that was an accomplishment! Fortunately he had no idea you could EAT the chocolate and so didn’t try until I suggested it (when he was finished with his acorn).

Once the glue was dry we emptied the excess and our final products:
