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!

Caterpillar to Butterfly

  • Coffee Filter
  • Markers, paints, or something to color coffee filter
  • Clothespin
  • Pom-pom balls
  • Pipe cleaner 
  • Wiggly eyes
  • Scissors
  • Glue

  1. Color the coffee filter. Set aside to dry.
  2. Glue some pom-pom balls to a clothes pin. Three works well--that way you can open and close the clothes pin easily.
  3. Glue on wiggly eyes.
  4. Glue on pipe cleaner for antennae.
  5. You can then take the caterpillar and scrunch up the filter in the clothes pin to make a butterfly! This is a great supplement to a caterpillar theme unit!

 Kaitlyn made this at preschool last month and it has been one of her favorite projects by far.
