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 […]

25 Active Ways to Learn Indoors with Tape

I have a thing with tape. I kind of like it…. just a little. Okay, maybe a lot! It comes in handy for activities, especially for active ways to learn pretty much anything! The great thing about tape is it gets the kids moving indoors. When its too hot, or too cold to be moving […]

Number Match Slap with Playing Cards

I just realized the potential of playing cards and learning numbers. Duh! We played a number match game with them, they’re great for number recognition! Even more so than recognizing numbers, a deck of playing cards are absolutely wonderful for one to one correspondence. George practiced a little of that with this number match to […]

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 […]

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 […]

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, […]

10 Shape Activities for Toddlers! It’s Hip to be Square!

We’ve been having a little bit of fun lately doing some hands on shape activities! George is on a shapes kick right now, anytime he asks for an activity, he’s been asking for ‘shapes’. Can’t say no to that! I keep the shapes we work on pretty basic. Usually the square, triangle, circle. And then […]

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 […]
