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!

Ice Skate Craft

This activity provides a fun winter decoration while working fine motor skills.

  • Yarn or string
  • Popscicle sticks
  • Aluminum foil
  • Construction paper
  • Scissors
  • Glue or tape
  • Paper hole punch
  1. Cut out skate shapes (older preschoolers and older can do this step).
  2. Punch holes for the "laces."
  3. Have your child wrap the popscicle sticks with the aluminum foil. Tape or glue one to the bottom of each skate.
  4. Have your child string the laces through the holes (tape down the string on one side--you can see that done on the skate on the right in the picture). Go through both skates with the yarn. Then tape it down on the other skate when done lacing.
