Who doesn’t want to learn more? As Dr. Suess said,

The more that you read, the more things you will know, the more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.” 

Set aside some indoor time everyday to challenge yourself!  Below is a list of fun, educational activities to try out at home!

 

Math Activity

Try this crafty math activity.  Learning is always more fun with art!  

  1. Cut out three crowns
  2. Label the crowns 1, 2, & 3
  3. Have your little one find 1, 2, & 3 things to glue onto the correct crowns.  You can use anything from marbles to googly eyes to goldfish.  Use your creativity!



Dog Bone Measuring Activity

Learning to measure is a great skill to have.  A way to make it fun is to measure objects in dog bones!  Cut out 10-15 pieces of the dog bone image shown above.  Have your little one go around the house finding objects to measure with dog bones.  Lay the object on the ground, and the paper bones next to it.  Have your little one count how many bones equal the length of an object.  Practice writing names and numbers by filling in the blanks:

 

We measured with dog bones!

 

________ is ________ dog bones tall.

________ is ________ dog bones tall.

________ is ________ dog bones tall.

________ is ________ dog bones tall.

________ is ________ dog bones long.

________ is ________ dog bones long.

________ is ________ dog bones long.

________ is ________ dog bones long.

 

 

Letter Learning Fun

On 4-6 pieces of paper write one, common letter of the alphabet, on each.  Spread them out on the floor and have your little one collect objects around the house that start with these letters.  Place the objects around the sheets of paper and see what you can collect!

 

 

Human Anatomy Activity

While practicing math is fun, it’s important to broaden knowledge with other subjects.  Check out this cool video on the lungs and then try the lung craft activity below!

What you’ll need:

  • Tape
  • Brown lunch bags
  • Straws
  • Markers

First decorate your lungs however you like, we’ve provided a picture above to give you some ideas.  Next, attach the straws to the tops of the paper bags with tape.  Make sure there are no holes.  Then, blow in and out of the straws and see the lungs in action!

 

 

Goldfish Color Learning Activity

With a box of colored goldfish, pour out a handful and have your little one sort the fish by color.  Once sorted, practice naming the colors.  Add more fun to the activity by counting out the amount of goldfish in each color category.
