This exciting roundup is the place to be for tried and true activities for kids.

This 'best-of' roundup provides teachers and parents with the most-viewed, most-shared options.

I'm happy to share this list of learning activities with parents and teachers that interest and excite both grownups and kids.

It is my goal to create, and make accessible, simple affordable activities that benefit early learning.

Hands-on playtime activities are by far the most popular - and beneficial - for fun and learning, for grownups as well as for kids.

  • When we can learn just by playing, early education doesn't get much better than that!


Most popular preschool activities

It's always a pleasure and a privilege to annually compile the most popular posts of the blog.

This list includes a couple annual favorites that have not lost their place in the roster - the lift-the-flaps game and the marble roll activity.

I'm also excited to welcome a newbie to the list - the DIY cardboard box roadster is a hit this year!

More than half the posts in this roundup are science related, which is no surprise.

  • Everyday play naturally includes exploration and discovery, which supports the emerging young scientist - and artist! - in kids.

Whether mixing paint colors on the easel, or sand and water in a jar, kids have a tendency to 'mix things up' to see what happens.
