150+ Activities for Year-Round Play & Learning

If you were standing right next to me when I tell you this, I’m sure you would laugh a little because it’s hard for me to say it without jumping up & down …

We have written a book!

Being an author is a life goal of mine so I’m really excited about this first book 🙂

I work with an outstanding group of writers, educators and moms — we call ourselves the Kid Blogger Network — and we love to share unique ideas for fun ways to play & learn.  We write & create kids activities for many websites across the globe but we wanted to create a resource for parents, teachers and grandparents where it was easy to find activities your kids will LOVE all in one place.

So let me introduce you to “Learn with Play:  150+ Activities for Year-Round Play & Learning” along with some BONUS activities and a special offer during our kick-off launch week!



The Best Play & Learning Activities for Kids

First, I want you all to know that this book would not be possible without my amazing readers!  You are the ones who let me know which activities you enjoy and send me awesome emails about how much your kids enjoy a book we recommended or a craft that was suggested.


If you were here, I would give you a big ol’ hug while jumping up and down to share the news 🙂

Our goal in writing this book is to provide you a HUGE variety of activities & crafts that are perfect for hands-on learning with toddlers, preschoolers and early elementary age kids! 

You’ll find ideas for math, reading, fine motor skills, science, sensory activities, busy bags, recipes for making your own items (like slime & play dough) and so many more!


BONUS Activities

To give you an idea of the types of ideas we’ve included, I thought I would share some ADDITIONAL ACTIVITIES that you won’t find in the book!  These are BONUS activities that are featured on some of our blogs and websites (and pictured above in the collage):
