Ready for a few more learning ideas to use with your children? You all have been sharing some great ideas – hope you been visiting others to see what they are linking up?

Clothespin Counting and Color Matching

Where Imagination Grows shared a simple but fun activity that uses clothespins. You can tie in color matching and identification with counting and also get a little fine motor practice in at the same time.



We used to have a ton of sponges around the house that we used for painting, and this Absorption Sensory Bin from Memorizing the Moments would have ben a great place to use so many of them. Depending on the sponges that you have on hand, you could add in so many other learning activities with this bin – colors, letters, etc… – what fun!


transportation sensory bins

This transportation sensory bin from Unschool the Teacher is so cute. I love the little car wash that she added to the bin {and you know the kids would love that!}.


Geoboard printables

GeoBoards are a great tool to use with your kids for creating shapes, imitating patterns, and so much more.  Plants and Pillars has some geoboard printables to share with everyone. They would make great tracing activities for younger children or your kids can imitate the activities.


aboriginal artwork

If you are planning any geography studies, be sure to check out the Pinay Homeschooler. We’’ll be studying Australia soon with our co-op and there are some fun art projects we can add to our list here.

Pumpkin Spice Cloud Dough

With fall coming, this pumpkin spice scented cloud dough sounds like it would be so yummy smelling. Not only would your house smell great, but I’m guessing your kids would as well.

That’s the round-up for this week, but there were so many other great links in last week’s Preschool and Kindergarten Community. Be sure to visit some of the other moms linking up this week and share some love with them!
