I Spy Sensory Bag for Sight Words & Letters

Make this I Spy sensory bag for all types of learning, including sight words and letters like we did, but don’t stop there! Sight words have been the talk here in this house this past week or so. Henry was stuck on the same list for over a month, only to realize that it was […]

Goldieblox Building Blocks for Girls

Meet GoldieBlox! Blocks Just for Girls!

I have three boys that just love to build with blocks. The creations they make is incredible to me, their imaginations soar when they’re building. And then they play with it for hours afterwards [or until their little brother may knock it down]. Blocks are so open-ended that we’ve done many activities with them, they’re […]

Kindergarten Math Activity to Solve Simple Addition Problems

This is not just a Kindergarten math activity that works on solving simple addition problems, but can also be a great number matching game for preschoolers!

Sort Colors & Get Moving With a Play Tunnel

This is a silly way to get the kids to learn about and sort colors. I absolutely needed to get the kids moving, or at least I thought I did. I have not been making the best of all their energy lately, and it’s starting to wear on me. So we included our play tunnel in […]

Ring Toss Name Recognition Activity

George just recently started learning his name to be more than the letter ‘G’, so we’re working on name recognition lately, and made a ring toss to get him moving and learning it! It was just Louis’ first birthday, so we have paper cups and plates still sitting out. I simply wrote the letters of […]

Make a color collage for learning colors

Super Simple Color Collage

This is a super simple color collage for learning colors. It’s a great introduction for colors because its great for kids that are just beginning to recognize that there are different colors and this is all about matching the colors and not putting labels on it. George, however, already knows most of his colors, so […]

Finger Painting with Baby Food While Creating Memories

You can paint with babies! Painting with baby food is a great way to introduce painting to babies! When George was little, we did a little sensory play with baby food, and he also made tape resist letters with edible finger paint that I made. All very special memories I have of him as a baby… It’s the season […]

Giant Spider Web Maze for Kids

Of course, a large spider web maze for the kids was in store… we just had to! You know how much I love mazes… and spider webs seems to be the theme in our house this Halloween. Plus, I found a super easy way for clean up with Clorox Disinfecting Wipes [who's sponsoring this conversation], […]
