This week’s activities, clockwise from top-left.

  1. 4th of July! Already? Yep its this week! Get in the spirit with a giant flag, learn patterns and practice counting too!
  2. Struggles with toddler activities are quite common, and being creative with them is even tougher. Hence, the 30 creative toddler craft and art projects for inspiration!
  3. It’s Playtime was all about friendship, as part of the friendship theme for The Readathon. How do you encourage being a good friend? [Shown is a reading comprehension activity from Reading Confetti.]
  4. A blast with water while learning a life skill, pouring drinks! George was all about pouring water into glasses and did it quite well!


A couple posts that you may like… I did!

  • There is just something about balloons that I’m always drawn to! A Mom with a Lesson Plan came up with a fun balloon toss game!
  • I found quite a few new ideas for developing fine motor skills  from Smiling Like Sunshine’s 10 activities that she shared. Can’t wait to try out a geoboard, have yet to do that!

Henry reading "The Lion and the Mouse" on

And I’m absolutely L-O-V-I-N-G the MeMeTales app. Henry could read books over and over all day long with it. I do wish I had an iPad instead of the iPod because actually reading the words is tough for me on that small of a screen. It’s a good thing there’s an Auto-Play option where it reads to Henry on its own. Love that! Seriously. Over and over.

This week he’s been reading the friendship themed books that are available for free for The MeMeTales Readathon. Its been a great discussion opener for what makes a good friend! Next week is character development. Curious where those conversations will lead us!

Don’t forget about International Mud Day – it was yesterday, but you can still play in the mud!
