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!

Santa Christmas Countdown

My mother-in-law made these with my kids over the weekend and I wanted to share it with you all! It takes so little--lined paper, red construction paper, and white construction paper. Add some scissors and glue. Then you just number the paper lines! Cut one line off each day.
