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!

Seasonal Clouds

I don't know if you've ever noticed before (I hadn't until my husband pointed it out), but the sky seems to change as the seasons change, too. The Fall and Winter sky looks different than the Spring and Summer sky. We've had many night already to just stand in awe and watch the amazing colors and cloud shapes.

My personal experience is that the summer sky seems to be great for cloud shapes and the "What does that cloud look like?" game. The fall and winter skies, though, are my favorite. The color show we've seen, sunsets, and patterns of light have been amazing. So take a look---take your kids out, watch the skies, and compare. These pictures were all taken on the same night. Every few minutes we'd get a different view from the same portion of sky. So, go out, lay in the grass, play ball, play "Captain Hook" (which is why my little one is running), take a walk, and talk about it!

Watching clouds.. sometimes it's good to just have a relaxing activity. I would also think the "What does the cloud look like" game will really open up the children's mind and creativity.

Fun for children
