Spider Web Sight Word Match

Inspired loosely by our giant sticky spider web made of tape, I made a spider web on the wall to have a little sight word match! Henry’s been diving into sight words in Kindergarten, and doing really well with them. To be honest, we haven’t done much sight word practice, other than reviewing the list […]

Finding & Sorting Pictures of Living and Nonliving Things

Recently, Henry came home with a note from school asking for a picture of one living thing and another of a nonliving object. While we found one picture of each, we set out to find a bunch of pictures of living and nonliving things to make a collage of each and learn a little about […]

This time we […]

Beginning Letter Sounds Sort Game

I normally just wing it when it comes to doing learning activities with Henry. Just basing it off what I know he already knows and what I think should come next. Henry has most of the beginning letter sounds down, so I rarely touch on it at home. We have here and there, but not […]

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 […]

The Kids Went Dumpster Diving… in a Cardboard Box!

We have had a bunch of very large cardboard boxes around from a bathroom remodel. My husband wanted to recycle them right away… but nope, I had to sneak in an activity or two with them first before I could see them go. My mom gave me this truly awesome idea for a big cardboard […]

Hop! Skip! Jump! with Paper Plates

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 […]
