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!

Witch Cupcakes

This is a fun way to decorate cupcakes, and it is definitely something your toddler can help you do.

1 and up with assistance. Two with lots of guidance. Three and up with their own imagination.

  • Cooking/baking
  • Math
  • Fine motor skills


  • Cupcakes (and all that it takes to make them)
  • Sugar ice cream cones (the pointy ones)
  • String licorice
  • Candy corn
  • Frosting
  • Food coloring if desired
  • Scissors (for you)


  1. Have your child help you bake cupcakes. This is where the math learning comes in.
  2. After cupcakes have cooled, frost them. You are making a witch, so I dye it green.
  3. Cut string licorice into pieces of hair. I use red licorice because no one in my house likes black.
  4. Let your child put hair on the witch.
  5. Put her pointy hat on.
  6. Add her candy corn nose.
  7. Eat her!
