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!

Teacher Appreciation Week: Seed Packs

I forgot to take a picture of this, so I am using a picture off the web.

Another gift for Teacher Appreciation Week I did to go along with the theme of "Nurturing Gardens" was a couple of seed packs. I did one vegetable or herb pack (most people around here garden) and one perennial flower pack. In picking vegetables, I was sure to only do packs of things that could still be planted in this growing season.

 I then tied the two packs together using Rafia (as seen above--Rafia can be found in the floral section of any craft store). I also included the quote: "Without hard work, nothing grows but seeds" by Gordon B. Hinckley.I put all of the packets in a basket and dropped the basket off in the office. The teachers and staff could then go at their leisure (ha! leisure for teachers) and peruse the seeds and choose what interested them.
