Toddler Activity Punch Game

Energetic Activity: Letter Sound Punch Game

I laugh when I think of this game we did. It was on a whim, and of course, it was made for George, but ended up making it for Henry because he was more interested in it. [It always seems to go that way...] This is an activity that takes some movement [Yay! Gross Motor […]

It’s Playtime is Learning Time!

I love to find fun ways to teach new concepts to the boys.Henry’s been really into counting lately, so we’ve been doing a lot of things with numbers. [He's even adding and subtracting, and even sometimes dividing without even knowing it!]Here’s 4 learning activities for the kids from last week’s It’s Playtime! Above, clockwise from […]

Sand Sensory Art: 100th Day of Preschool

Henry had his first homework assignment for preschool. To create the number 100 out of something. [Not 100 of something, but to make the numbers themselves.] We discussed it together to decide what to make. [Henry told me his teacher made one out of corn!] We decided we wanted to make one with dirt. Well, […]

Kid Activity: Crayon Color Sorting

The kids and I were out shopping, actually doing it to waste time to pick up Dad. And I came across these crayon shaped paint sample cards.  I had no plan for them, but I’ve been seeing a million ideas for sample cards lately, and thought there must be something I could do with them. […]

Kids Experiment: How Much Water Does it Hold?

Henry wanted to do an experiment. He said he’d come up with one for us to do after nap. So, after nap, Henry collected his things for his experiment. He brought a tractor and his wagons. He told me his experiment was to pour water into them. So I grabbed some cookie sheets in case […]

Block Activity: Build a City

Valentine’s Day Art: The Kids’ HeArts

I’m not sure what it is about this Heart art that I like so much. Maybe its because both the boys did it together. Or maybe its because I found out how nicely Henry can cut and follow a line. Or maybe its just because its close to Valentine’s Day, and love is in the […]

A Number Maze for Preschoolers to Count

I taped out a maze on our floor with masking and painter’s tape. To make it a number maze to practice counting, I simple labeled it with numbers, with one path being in numerical order. The rest random. [By the way: that was the extent of George's participation in the maze activity. Sitting on the maze.] […]
