Find the Letter & Swat It! Active Way for Learning Letters!

I’ve been working a lot on letters with George lately. He’s getting them down pretty good, I’m just reinforcing what he already knows and building his confidence that he does know what the letters are! This activity was inspired from an iPad app for young kids called KneeBouncers. It has all different areas of learning, […]

Getting Messy with a Mud Target Practice for Kids

Setting up a simple target practice for kids leads to great gross motor practice with throwing! This is a messy, but oh-so-fun one. “If you want more mud, then go get more dirt.” Yep. I actually said those words. And it was so worth it. A mess can always be cleaned up later. Especially when […]

Toddler Chalkboard Maze for Learning Letters

George is getting the hang of some, if not most of his letters. But, learning letters seems to come and go with him. Instead of badgering him to learn more, more, more. I’m in a phase of building his confidence about what he already knows. I set up a chalkboard maze for him to work […]

Learning Shapes with a Ball for Toddlers

This is a fun shape learning activity for toddlers, that George kept asking to come back to and play all day. I taped a bunch of shapes onto the floor in an area. I didn’t really pay attention to where I put them, or in any certain order [mostly because I didn't have a plan […]

Hop! Skip! Jump! is a super simple activity for toddlers, and even preschoolers or kindergartners, will love that I found with Knoala App. All you need is some room [taking it outside worked well for us because it was a gorgeous day, but this would be a great boredom buster for an indoor day] and […]

Squiggle! Tracing Lines on the Driveway

On a spur of a moment activity [why not? They're the best and easiest], I drew a few random, swirly lines with chalk on our driveway. George had such a fun time tracing letters and shapes on our indoor chalkboard, when I wrote that post I realized it would be so much fun to do […]

Tracing Letters & Shapes on the Chalkboard

I never did do much for tracing letters with Henry. George is all about writing and drawing though, so this was right up his alley. We have a large chalkboard to use, but we could [and probably should!] do this outside on the sidewalk with sidewalk chalk and water too. George constantly asks for water […]
