Slimy Spaghetti Sensory Activity for Toddlers

Sensory activities are always fun for toddlers to do. They get to explore, and there’s never a right or wrong way to do it. A spaghetti sensory activity is perfect for Halloween because it’s oh-so-slimy! We turned The Imagination Tree’s bug slime spaghetti [eww!] into a sensory activity especially for Halloween with just a few colors! I […]

Baking Soda and Vinegar Experiment with Color Fun

Any baking soda and vinegar experiment I’ve ever done with the kids has always been a success. The fizz just makes it so much fun! Henry was fascinated by the reactions the colored vinegar made when it hit the baking soda in this activity. This science experiment,¬†that I found at The Adventures of the Smith […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Homemade Finger Paint for Toddlers Tape Resist Art

As George is getting older, it’s getting more interesting to keep him entertained during activities with Henry.¬†Especially art activities. Because he’s usually stuck in his high chair with nothing to do. To solve this, I included George in the activity this time. I made my own homemade finger paint [its an edible recipe found At […]

Kid Made Homemade Ice Cream in a Bag

It was for Grandpa’s birthday, my mom mentioned there was cake for dessert, so we made homemade ice cream in a bag to go with it! Ever since The Pleasantest Thing shared her homemade ice cream pops here and I saw Coffee Cups and Crayon’s homemade ice cream in a bag recipe, I’ve been dying […]

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 […]
