Second in the series of activities for preschoolers is the Pom-Pom Clothespin Grasp.  This activity is great for practicing fine motor and sorting skills.  The girls made our Pom-Pom Clothespin Grasp game at the homeschool co-op we attend, but it would be simple to make at home as well.

It’s cold here in the midwest and we’re stuck inside most of the time.  Finding activities to keep the kids occupied (and from fighting with each other) can be a struggle.  Today, I’m sharing one of our favorite activities.  Indoor bubbles!

As we go deeper into fall, it starts to get cold outside and we stay indoors more.  But being inside doesn’t mean you can’t still enjoy the season!  Today’s indoor activity, Fall Guess Bags (inspiration found here!) is a great way to bring the outside, in!  It requires a little bit of preparation on your part […]

I’ve been pinning sensory rice on Pinterest for a while now, thinking I’d make some, but I’ve not gotten around to making any until now.  When I saw this apple scented sensory bin at Frogs, Snails, and Puppy Dog Tails, I knew I had to give it a try!  Who doesn’t love fall scents and apple […]

Busy Bag Printables

A couple years ago, I did a busy bag swap for my girls where a bunch of moms got together, made ten of a certain type of busy bag, and then exchanged them.  We’ve gotten a lot of use out of ours and I’ve now created printables for five different busy bags that you can use to […]

Easter Crafts for Kids: Cross at Sunrise

Today, we continued with our Easter crafts.  The more I think about it, the more I really, really like the fact that we’re doing Easter crafts in October.  Or any time of the year other than Spring.  Not that I wouldn’t do them in the spring, but adding them in at other times of the […]

Nature Walk Ideas

Have you ever taken a nature walk with your children and then wondered what to do with all the STUFF you bring home?  Twigs, leaves, rocks, butterfly wings, and grass strewn about the house.  I know I’ve personally had to threaten to throw out acorns if I stepped on any more!  The solution?  DO something with all […]
