Welcome!

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!

Simple Reading


Kaitlyn came home with these very cute ideas on helping children learn to read simple words in similar word families. In the picture above, you can see the teacher took a paint chip sample, cut out a hole, then printed out a strip of letters that can go along with the two letters to make various words (c-ap, g-ap, l-ap, m-ap, r-ap, s-ap, t-ap, z-ap). The child then moves the paint chip sample and reads the word that goes with the first letter. 


In this example, you see a fun way of incorporating a theme into your word practice. They were learning about the letter P and also farm animals.

Hey, this is great! My son is just 4 months old, but I love to think how we will spend time when he gets older. Can't wait!
