Need a fine motor activity for your Kindergartener?
Here is a simple way for your Kindergartener to practice hand control.
Even better? Kindergarteners love tying knots. - Fascinating, isn’t it? Hand my Kindergartener some ribbon and he will tie knots for a solid 20 minutes.
Scoop the Limes. - Also known as Grandma Bought too Many Limes at Costco and Now we Need to Find Some Uses.
Sometimes the best activities come from ideas that happen organically.
Here, my mom purchased more limes than she could account for.
Since the mission was to scoop and transfer, I also knew that no limes would be wasted. After water play, we used the limes in our next 37 glasses of soda water. 😆
What happened as my boys played, was simply magical. We began the water play using a ladle, and finished up with some other fabulous variations. All taken from our outdoor storage bin, of course!
Need a pencil grip activity for your creative spirit?
My almost four year old enjoys his morning Breakfast Invitation and almost always goes a little rouge on the final steps.
Here, I wanted to give him some freedom to explore pencil grip without following a rigid guideline. We want to remember that all kids learn differently and do not fit one mold.
Sometimes we are looking for an activity to excel academically.
Other times we are looking for ideas to help unload the dishwasher.
Good News! This Elmer the Elephant activity does both!
What do you do when your children love hot lava as much as they love snacks?
You make fine motor hot lava games, of course.
My boys love hot lava.
I find that it can sneak up into our living room, and also make it’s way into the cracks of the parking lot. Hot lava seems to be everywhere. And who knew? I am thinking that hot lava and kids seem to be this unspoken language that unites them all. Apparently, it’s a thing and I am determined to run with it.
Winner Winner Chicken Dinner! I’ve got your Breakfast Invitation secret weapon.
Kids love seeing their name. Like, loooooooooove seeing their name.
And so do we. We use our names to mark our success at workouts, sign off on an email, and to simply identify which Starbucks frappacchino is ours. We find it especially funny when it gets written incorrectly.
Names are a beautiful representation of who we are.
Let’s use names to help our children grasp a marker, identify letters, and hold their hand steady to design a circle as they find their name.

Need to entertain your one-year-old?
Grab your clothespins and paper rolls for this quick and easy toddler game.
One thing I have learned about my 18-month-old is that his mind is always focused on how things work, how things come apart, and just how far something will travel when it gets tossed across the room.
Through these observations, we discovered Clothespin Pull.
