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!

Simple Summer: Simple Preschool Cirriculum


While browsing my online library, looking for eBooks, I cam across this section that has a lesson plan for you for every month of the year. I thought it would make a great resource for simple summer learning! I find the biggest time suck for learning activities is the actual planning and preparing--not the doing--and in the summer, I really don't want to be sitting and planning and preparing. So I thought I would pass the link along to you if you are interested--it is linked right to June:

Teacher Appreciation Meal

I am fortunate to have a friend who is a master at serving food to large groups of people. She always helps me with the meal for Teacher Appreciation Week. This year, we did Navajo Tacos. This is a fried scone (Utah style...I think often called "elephant ears" in different parts) with meat, cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, sour cream...whatever you might put on a taco. We bought all of the ingredients for 130 at Sams.

We had room moms and volunteers bring a dessert. People love bringing desserts. Most people can easily throw something together. Teachers loved the variety of sweet treats. We also had a variety of drinks.

We finished the meal off with each teacher getting a gift card--teachers love gift cards!

Teacher Gift: Pamper Set

We wanted to give the teachers something they could use to just pamper themselves. 

We did a lufa, nailpolish, bubble bath, hand lotion, and chap stick. We were able to get a lot of the things from AVON for a really reasonable price. Here is a link to the gift tag: https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B984Wp7G0yTWbUVwSDkwSEcyMDQ/edit?usp=sharing

School Supply Gift

To go along with the theme of "You've Colored Our World, Now Let Us Brighten Yours," we gave the teachers a school supply kit with the colors of the rainbow. We included crayons, glue, pens, pencils, pencil top erasers, notebook, tissues, and sanitizing wipes, all in a cute bag. We bought most of these supplies last summer during the sales that lead up to the school year starting off. The pencil top erasers were purchased through Amazon--they have some great deals there. We bought them in gross boxes and then divided them up in those little treat bags.
