If you have young kids then you know that kids like to stay super active. I’m excited to share a fun new Netflix show and a few glitter-inspired kids activities!
Teaching science to kids can be creative and fun! It’s easy to make school at home interesting and interactive to inspire a love for learning. Here are a few projects we’ve enjoyed to mix up our daily homeschool routine.
The best way to learn about science is by performing your own experiments, but not every family has a full science lab in their garage. Science is everywhere and you don’t need to visit a lab to teach your kids all sorts of things using static electricity. These static electricity activities are fun to incorporate into homeschool or do as an after school activity.
My kids love color, glitter and playdough so we combined all three and made rainbow unicorn playdough! This easy salt dough recipe involves creating a range of playdough colors and mixing them all together. Of course a generous sprinkling of glitter is the finishing touch.
This year my girls are in kindergarten and preschool. I did not invest in a official homeschooling curriculum this year but most mornings I plan some simple school activities with my kids. We color, trace letters, learn alphabet sounds, recite the months of the year and days of the week and learn about the 5 senses. The girls also do a few pages in their kids workbooks from Costco. While we are doing school I set up a few activities to entertain my toddler boy so the rest of us can enjoy a productive school time. Here are some learning-inspired activities perfect for 2-year-olds.
Valentine’s Day is a fun holiday to celebrate with the people you love! These creative Valentine’s Day kids’ projects, sensory activities and yummy snacks are some fun ways to make the holiday memorable for your family.
My girls love creating and doing all sorts of crafts and activities. They love building forts, playing with color, helping me cook in the kitchen and designing their own crafty creations with paper. Here are some toys my girls received for the holidays that encourage learning though play! We can easily include these kid’s activities in our preschool routine at home.
Where we live Winter can be a season of “cabin fever” with little ones at home. It takes a lot of effort to bundle them all up just to get outside for half an hour but it is always worth it! I’ve noticed that my kids always come back inside feeling refreshed from getting their energy out and breathing in the fresh air outdoors.
Rainy or snowy days can still be adventurous opportunities to play outside with some extra gear. And if we have to go somewhere, rain and snow gear is essential for staying warm on the go!
