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!

Sticky Vowels

Vowels are the letters that hold words together. This is a fun craft to help solidify that idea in your child's mind.

First, find a glue clipart picture you like online (or draw your own).

Second, copy the picture and paste it into your word processing program. 

Third, resize it to the size you like and then copy it and paste it four more times.

Fourth, print this sheet out.

Fifth, you will want letters. You can write them, get stickers or die-cuts, etc. You could even put them on your glue bottles in your word processing program before you print.

For the activity, have your child color the glue bottles, cut them out, and stick the words on the glue bottles. Talk about the role vowels play in our words. Not only will you be increasing your child's understanding of letters in preparation for reading, but also practicing cutting, coloring, and pasting if gluing letters on the bottles.
