You may be wondering what we could have possibly done with pool noodles inside the house, but believe me, you’d be amazed at some of the ideas that we came up with before deciding on this one.From ABC’s to ACTS
A pool noodle play house that is perfect for a gloomy, rainy day!
This simple activity is actually a lot of bang for your buck: it’s fine motor skills AND math all rolled into one. Fine motor skills are important for future tasks like pencil grip and buttoning sweaters; sorting is a hugely important math skill that introduces the concept of classifying and organizing data (all that from a simple sorting game? You betcha!).Busy Toddler
If there are two things that I know about preschoolers it is this: they love scavenger hunts and they love sticky notes.Hands On as We Grow
Really. I have never met a preschooler who didn’t love a good scavenger hunt or one who would not cover a room with sticky notes with a smile ear to ear.
This preschool scavenger hunt to find colors is bound to be a hit!
If you are looking for easy play activity ideas for your baby, toddler or preschooler it doesn’t get much simpler than playing with dried pasta and spaghetti. Pasta play keeps young children busy as well as working on their fine motor skills. Dried pasta activities make very little mess and they can be tidied away again quickly. This easy play idea is one of our go-to activities if we have a spare 5 minutes to fill as it is so easy to prepare and tidy away.Messy Little Monster
This easy preschool shapes activity hunt is the perfect way to teach toddlers shapes.We often do colors and shapes activities for preschoolers because they work on basic preschool shape recognition, preschool color recognition, sorting skills and visual perception. This early math themed sensory activity is sure to teach your child some wonderful math facts in a hands on way. I was searching for ways to help my toddler learn shapes. Through repetition and many of the other shapes activities we did, she learned them pretty quickly at the age of 2. Kids learn through their five senses and when we can target these senses kids are more easily able to internalize the learning experience.Fun with Mama

Glow in the dark bowling is an activity I have been anxiously waiting to do with my girls. Now that it is warm enough and Rosie and Jewel are old enough we finally got our chance! The girls were so excited to head outside with a glow in the dark bowling ball and go night bowling….. and they even got to make the glowing pins and ball themselves.Growing a Jeweled Rose
