Toddlers

This page is for all the sweet cheeked toddle-babies out there (along with their exhausted and hard working parents!) Below you’ll find ideas based around early learning skills such as sensory play, creativity, math, literacy and exploring the world! Though these activities can be done by very young children, preschoolers will definitely enjoy them all too! Note: Please be cautious when doing any activity with younger toddlers that involves small pieces. If your little still puts everything in their mouth, either watch them like a hawk, or skip that activity!

Tot School

Even though toddlers are too little to go to “real” school, I thought it would be fun to do some back to school activities with my littlest learner this week to go along with his brother’s back to school themed learning! He’s really been into identifying colors and counting lately (I sang him “1, 2,Continue reading “Tot School”

A World of Color

Teaching your toddler their colors is probably one of the first things you’ll do since they’re so fun and easy to notice and point out. Since we’re doing crayon week with my older little, I figured this was a perfect time to focus in on learning about color with our youngest! He’s already pointing colorsContinue reading “A World of Color”

Happily Ever After

Fairy tales are great simple stories to start your toddler on, so this week we’ll be reading several from the book “A Treasury of Five Minute Stories” and doing projects that go along with them- from castle building with blocks to a “Princess and the Pea” sensory bin, I hope you have fun playing happilyContinue reading “Happily Ever After”

Apples, Apples, Apples!

This week we dove right in to more fall themed activities with a super yummy and fun apple week! Nothing says fall quite like nice, crisp apples (except maybe pumpkins, but I’m saving those for October!) and we had a blast sorting them, counting them and of course eating them! So join us in theContinue reading “Apples, Apples, Apples!”

Cozy up to the Campfire

There’s just something cozy and comforting about camping in the fall time- the pretty changing leaves making a roof over your head, the chill in the air warded off by the warm campfire, hot gooey s’mores melting all over your fingers. Some people think of camping as a summer activity, but my favorite time toContinue reading “Cozy up to the Campfire”

Aaaahhh! Spiders!

I do not like spiders. They’re unpredictable. And they bite. And their webs are about the creepiest thing to accidentally walk into on the planet. But- since it’s officially October I thought they would be a fun theme to start off with this month in all its scary, creepy crawly glory! So without further adieu-Continue reading “Aaaahhh! Spiders!”

Beautiful Bats

We’re already going batty at our house for Halloween, which is just a few weeks away, so I thought a bat theme would be a perfect way to tie in some spooky fun to our learning this week! Swoop on in and check it out! –Bat light box: Ever since I discovered this activity onContinue reading “Beautiful Bats”

BOO!

Halloween is right around the corner, so I thought we’d kick it off with some spooktacular Halloween learning activities! We’ll still be celebrating Halloween this year, but in a Covid-safe way…it’s one of my favorite holidays, so opting out wasn’t an option! (Check out my list of safe trick-or-treating alternatives in my blog post PandemicContinue reading “BOO!”

Vote!

Although the idea of voting may be way over our toddlers’ heads, I still think it’s important to introduce our children to the democratic process of voting at a young age. Since having my second baby, I usually do mail-in ballots (because honestly it’s WAY more relaxing to look up all the lesser known candidatesContinue reading “Vote!”

It’s Pumpkin Season!

Halloween is over and the holiday season is on the horizon- which means food, family and of course PUMPKINS! Although pumpkins may traditionally be a Halloween/Jack-o-Lantern type thing, we decorate with these cute fruits all fall long, so of course we had to break out some activities to celebrate their adorable orange roundness too! YouContinue reading “It’s Pumpkin Season!”

Gobble Gobble

Thanksgiving is already upon us, and although I know most people take a break from school during this week, I figured you might need some fun activities to keep your littles occupied while you madly cook 863 dishes in the kitchen (especially since the Macy’s Parade is canceled this year! Dang you Covid!!!) So grabContinue reading “Gobble Gobble”

Little Deers

It’s the most wonderful time of the year again, and I just can’t WAIT to jump in to some fun Christmas themed learning over the next few weeks! To start, we’re going to be doing everything reindeer- after all, how else would Santa deliver all of his gifts if it wasn’t for the help ofContinue reading “Little Deers”

Joy to the World!

Welcome to the most wonderful blog post of the year- toddler Christmas activities! I just love this time of year, especially with littles! It’s the sweetest thing ever to experience Christmas magic through their eyes and there’s no better way to kick off the Christmas season than with some fun crafts and sensory play activities!Continue reading “Joy to the World!”

Frosty Fun

Frooooosty the snowman was a jolly, happy soul! Hi everyone! Happy New Year! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas break! Now that the most wonderful time of the year is behind us (TIME of the year…not the most wonderful year because we all know 2020 was rough! LoL), we’re going to jump into someContinue reading “Frosty Fun”

3 2 1 BLAST OFF!

Even from an early age, kids are interested in space. Both of my boys were obsessed with finding the moon as babies, and as they grew, they became interested in rocket ships, planets and stars too. Even as an adult, I find space fascinating and never cease to be humbled by the new things IContinue reading “3 2 1 BLAST OFF!”

Winter Wonderland

It’s been winter for a few weeks, but with all of the Christmassy fun we’ve been having, we haven’t had time to stop and properly enjoy this season- until now! This week’s lessons are full of snowy, cozy wintery fun perfect for toddlers and preschoolers alike! So bundle up and let’s go! –Winter cotton ballContinue reading “Winter Wonderland”

Rawr!

Dinosaurs are such crazy fascinating creatures, aren’t they? Both of my boys love them, so I knew we had to do a dino themed week of learning at some point- and it seemed like now was as good a time as any! We hope you’ll stomp along with us through these prehistoric activities and haveContinue reading “Rawr!”

Love is in the Air!

I just LOVE Valentine’s Day! I think it’s wonderful that we’ve set aside a special day each year to celebrate the gift of love that God has given us! It’s a wonderful opportunity to show family and friends how much they mean to you- and to teach your littles to love themselves, God, their friendsContinue reading “Love is in the Air!”

Won’t You Be My Neighbor

My toddler LOVES the show “Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood”- and let’s be honest- with all of its sweet little lessons on kindness, dealing with big emotions, and pretty much every other issue toddlers and preschoolers face- so do I! I seriously have several of the jingles memorized to use with my boys when issues arise (“Stop!Continue reading “Won’t You Be My Neighbor”

Seussville

With Dr. Seuss books I’m like “I can read them here or there, I can read them anywhere!” They are truly gems in the world of kids’ books! Not only are they whimsical and fun, but Dr. Seuss was a revolutionary in the area of early childhood literacy in that many of his books areContinue reading “Seussville”

E-I-E-I-O!

My toddler has been obsessed with chickens since he turned 1, and both my boys are huge tractor fans so I knew we had to do a farm week sooner or later! Since spring is on the way, I figured now would be a great time! So get ready to get muddy and learn aboutContinue reading “E-I-E-I-O!”

Radiant Rainbows

Somewheeeere over the rainbow blue biiiiiirds flyyyyyyyyy! Oh hey there! Welcome to my toddler rainbow activities post! Both of my boys (and most of the adults I know) marvel at rainbows whenever they appear. They’re just so beautiful and wonderous, aren’t they? Not only a promise from God to never flood the whole Earth again,Continue reading “Radiant Rainbows”

Wee Leprechauns

Top o’ the mornin’ to ya and your wee lads and lasses too! Even though St. Patrick’s Day was on Wednesday and I usually do holiday plans with my littles a week early so they’re in your hands for the actual holiday, I got my dates confused (I THOUGHT St. Patty’s was on the 17th!)Continue reading “Wee Leprechauns”

Fun with Flowers

Down here in the south it’s definitely springtime! The weather is (mostly) warmer, our crepe myrtles are starting to sprout leafy branches, the magnolia trees are budding and flowers that were dormant for our short winter are blooming in our yard…plus it’s raining pollen instead of water and making us all wonder if it’s allergiesContinue reading “Fun with Flowers”

Little Ladybugs

What’s cute, red, has black spots and can fly? Ladybugs of course! Ladybugs are just so cute- and their fun black spots make it SO easy to come up with learning activities centered around them- especially art and counting! Since spring is in the air, I thought it would be a great time to doContinue reading “Little Ladybugs”

Kiddie Construction Site

My youngest little is VERY much in to all things construction! Books, toy tools, construction vehicles, blocks- if it’s related to building, he’s all about it! I knew that he would love a construction site based week of learning (I mean, I’ve read him the book “Goodnight, Goodnight Construction Site” so many times I practicallyContinue reading “Kiddie Construction Site”
