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!

Surviving Winter: Baking

My idea behind surviving through the winter months (with sanity, happiness, and fun) cooped up in the house is to find things that will keep my children so they don't feel the need to pull out every toy and game we own and to prevent bickering that can happen when people are bored. We have structured  days, but you need some free play. 

Baking is something that all three of my children love to do. The measuring, pouring, mixing...not only is there a lot to learn while baking (math, fine motor, life skills), there is a lot of time to talk. It is a great moment to bond and get to know your children a bit better. Plus, you get food made at the same time! Yum!

So do some baking this winter. Your tummy and your child will thank you for it.

I believe the threading practice strengthens small muscles and the finished product is something your child can wear or give as a gift! When you try an activity out, please comment and let us know how your child liked it! Coloring Pages

Well it’s a great idea to keep kids busy in some interesting jobs which they like. Besides this we can arrange fun activities for them so that they can learn things while playing games.there are many games for kids available in market and online as well.

I can't wait to cook or bake with my son. I think it will be an important lesson for him - that cooking and eating is something more than just filling your empty stomach.
