Paper clip patterning

My favorite thing about early-learning math is that children don’t necessarily have to recognize it as math. Important concepts like patterning can be taught in such a way that they feel more like playing than school work. And if you know me at all, you know I believe that (whenever possible) learning should be fun!

Counting Coconuts has made this easier for the rest of us by sharing a fun patterning activity to be used with colored paper clips. All you have to do is print out her pattern sheets (find them here), cut them into strips, gather some colored paper clips, and you’re ready to go!

I also laminated mine and rounded the corners so they’d be kid friendly and would stand up to multiple play sessions. I put the clips and the cards in a small basket in a place she can reach, so she can access them any time she wants.

Show your child how to follow the pattern on the card to hook her clips together. Then, sit back and enjoy seeing the pride on her face when she completes each card.

If your little one is anything like my daughter, she’ll also spend some time making a variety of necklaces and bracelets from the paper clips as well. She’ll make some for you, too…so be prepared to walk around with some new jewelry!

Want more patterning activities? My favorite resource for kid-friendly printables is I’ve linked to the preschool worksheets, but they have them available all the way through third grade level, so just click on the link on the left of the page to find the ones appropriate for your child.

Enjoy learning together!

Isn’t it amazing what sponges our little ones are? The amount of knowledge they can soak up never ceases to amaze me, and I’m often reminded that we should be continually taking advantage of this insatiable desire to learn, learn, learn.

Here’s one way to do just that. Grab one of those wipe-off, World Map place mats we all have. Put it in front of your child and show her the continents. Name them. Find something she can relate to on each one.

See this? This is Australia. This is where those cute little koala bears live. And kangaroos. And wallabies. Look how small Australia is, compared to the other continents!

And this one here? This is Africa. You know how we always pray for Ashley and Mikayla? This is where they’re doing their mission work. Aaaaaashley…..Aaaaafrica. 

Know why we like to speak Dutch so much? It’s because we learned it when we lived here, in this continent. It’s called Europe. We rode our bikes everywhere when we lived here.

When we Skype with Uncle Kelcy, we’re talking to him in China. That’s here, in Asia. Look how BIG Asia is!

You get the idea. Don’t just tell your child the name of the continent—tell her about the penguins that live in Antarctica, or trips you’ve made to this place or that, or relatives she knows who reside in other areas of the world. Or, point out well-known landmarks that she can associate with each place. Make each continent more than just a colored blob on a map.

Once you’ve gone over the basics, it’s time to start the game. Choose a small snack your child loves. It could be mini-marshmallows, cereal pieces, raisins, nuts, or even m & m’s. They key is to make it small, because she’s going to be eating several of them and they need to fit on your map.

For my daughter, I chose her favorite candy, Skittles. What can I say? I wanted this to be motivating…and it was!

teach continents with candy

Just take one of the snacks and put it on any continent you choose, and ask your child to name it. The rules are simple: If she can do it, she gets to take the snack and eat it. If not, give her the correct answer and move it to another continent and keep playing. You will be amazed at how quickly she will pick up on those names!

Once my daughter had the continents down pat, I decided to move on to learning the states, but since there were so many I changed the reward to Nerds candy–much smaller. (Because I’m just not sure the sugar rush from learning all 50 states with Skittles would be worth it.)

I also taught her a little song I made up to help her remember the continent names, even when she wasn’t looking at a map. We sang it to the tune of “If Your’e Happy and You Know It:”

There are seven continents in our world.

There are seven continents in our world.

North and South America,

Europe, Asia, Africa,

And Australia and Antarctica. 

(Yes, it fits. Work with me here.)

We sang the song over and over while looking at a globe. And during bath time. And while riding in the car.

I based this prize aspect of this activity on an awesome idea I found on Grasping for Objectivity, and you can use this same method to teach all kinds of things to your young (or older) child. Yes, that’s right. As soon as my 12-year-old daughter saw what we were doing (read: saw the candy), she wanted to get in on the action, too. Be sure you up the challenge factor for those older kids!

And once your little one learns the continents, you can move on to oceans, U.S. states, and other geography subjects. You can also use this method to teach the presidents, plant parts, or whatever else you have a place mat for. The possibilities are only as limited as the place mat selection at the dollar store (or Target’s dollar spot), right?

And if you’re trying to decide which subject to study concurrently, may I suggest tackling the importance and methodology of good teeth brushing?

Enjoy learning together!

Aren’t we blessed? We’ve been given so much, but sometimes we forget to acknowledge those blessings and the One who gave them. Do you want to help your child feel (and express) more gratitude?

Although I created this activity during the summer months, I thought November would be a perfect time to share with you a fun way to help your little one focus on being thankful for everything he’s been blessed with. This idea can be used anytime of year, and is a great take-along activity for when you need something to keep your child busy and quiet. I’ve also used it in my Bible class for when the children were just arriving.

Set-up is easy. Simply make a list of things your child is/should be thankful for, and search free clip-art for pictures to represent each item on the list. Put them all into a document and print them out.

gratitude game

For our game, I included a variety of material blessings, like houses, vehicles, toys, and books, as well as relational blessings like parents, grandparents, siblings, and pets. Some were very general, like sunshine and rain, while others were specific to my daughter, like her favorites foods (rice, bananas, and ice cream), her dog, and her two brothers and one sister. Some pictures represented physical blessings like a comfortable bed to sleep in, clothes to wear, and food to eat, while other icons stood for spiritual blessings like Christ, His Word (the Bible), and His church. (I used a building to represent the church, but wish I’d shown a group of people instead, for a more accurate representation.) I intentionally made the drawing of Jesus twice as big as all the others, and we talked about how none of the rest of them would mean much without HIM. His sacrifice for us is the greatest blessing we have!

Next, laminate the pages you printed and cut them out, adding a small magnet piece to the back of each.

magnetic pieces for gratitude game

Now, it’s your child’s turn! If you have a white board or some other large magnetic surface, great. But even a cookie sheet works in a pinch, and is nice for when you need this activity to be portable. Plus, it’s the perfect size for your child’s lap!

playing the gratitude game

My daughter was a young four when I made this for her, but it would work well for just about any age of young child. Simply give yours the pieces and allow him to choose which ones he’s thankful for. (Yes, eventually he’ll pick them all.) Each time he adds one to the board, have him tell you what it is and why he’s thankful for it. If you have tailored this to your child’s life, it should be very natural for him to express thanksgiving for each blessing, and it’s a great way to improve his verbal abilities while he has fun and focuses on all God’s done for him. Win, win, win!

One last note…Be sure you don’t use activities like this only at Thanksgiving time. We should be teaching our children that we are blessed all year, and we need to be grateful all year.

Enjoy learning together!

This is the final post in a series of apple-themed lessons and activities. I hope you’ve enjoyed them all so far, and want to share a few more ideas today as we wrap up.

Memory work:

We memorized Psalm 17:8 (NIV):

“Keep me as the apple of Your eye; hide me in the shadow of Your wings.”

We learned this verse the first day, and said it often during our Apple Week. Be sure your child understands the meaning of this verse, and how very special she is in God’s eyes!


Anything with paint goes over big at our house, and this craft was no exception. I simply gave Remi a paper plate and some red paint and let her go to town on it…

painting apple craft

…and then we added a letter “a” (from a template downloaded from Confessions of a Homeschooler) which I printed on white paper, to represent the apple’s flesh. We glued on some of the seeds we’d extracted from a real apple during snack time, and then I gave her some green and brown construction paper so she could make a stem and leaf. Apparently, she got them a little backwards…but how cute is that?

apple seed craft


With each theme we do, I have Remi draw a picture to add to her notebook. Here’s her rendition of an apple:

apple drawing


Next, I had my little one explain to me how to make an apple pie. As she dictated the instructions, I wrote them down on this printable from Homeschool Share. It was intended to be a mini-book that could be added to a lapbook, but I thought it was cute “as is” for her notebook, so we went with this:

Apple pie instructions


I often throw in a do-a-dot activity with each theme, just for fun, such as this apple do-a-dot worksheet from DLTK:

A is for apple do-a-dot

Non-traditional coloring? Yes, please!

In keeping with our Apple Week theme, we enjoyed some fun activities based on the book, Ten Apples Up On Top! by the incomparable Dr. Seuss. (Please see my disclosure regarding affiliate links contained in this post.) Of course, the first thing we did was read the book.

Ten Apples Up On Top

Then we gathered up some apples of our own…

apples, apples, apples!

…and tried to stack them like they did in the book. Regardless of their success, we found that doing it on our heads was pretty tricky…

apple on head

…and stacking them on the table wasn’t much easier!

But we kept trying! Such concentration…

Next, we cut one of our apples in half, and dipped it in some paint.

apple stamping

Remi drew a picture of herself and then stamped some apple prints “on her head” just like the characters in the book.

Ten Apples Up On Top--self-portrait with stamped apples

Aren’t little kids’ self-portraits just the best?!

I liked that even though the apples in the book were all red, Remi wanted to do both red and green to match our apples. And I especially liked that she made this face while stamping:

hard work face

Apparently, it’s her “working hard” expression. Once she got started on this, she didn’t want to quit…

stamping with painted apple

…and she ended up doing a whole page of extra apple stamps—always a good sign that your project has gone over well, right?

(Our activities were adapted from ideas shared on Learn~Play~Imagine.)

I also found some cute apple counting clip cards on this site. We pulled out our mini-clothespins (or you could use paper clips) and played with this as a just-for-fun, keep-busy-while-mom-fixes-lunch activity, but if your child is younger you could really spend some time with this set as a teaching tool.

Aren’t they adorable?

And they go so perfectly with the book!

I hope you enjoy these activities inspired by my favorite author. (What a genius Dr. Seuss was!)

Recently, I shared with you some ideas for Apple Math, as well as Apple Snacks and an Apple Bible Lesson. Today I have some fun activities to help you and your young child(ren) explore Apple Science.

I found a cute experiment on called Apple Slice Science. Remi loves doing science experiments—or, as she calls them, “science experiences”—and what’s better than an experiment you can eat? We started by making some fruit faces–one happy, one sad. (The original version used grapes and raisins, but we used some frozen berries instead.) Of course, the mouths were apple slices.

Apple slice science--apple faces

I gave Remi a bowl of lemon juice and a brush…

lemon juice for apple

…and let her brush lemon juice onto the happy smile only. Then, we let the faces sit for about 15 minutes.

Brush lemon on one apple

We probably should have waited a bit longer for an even more dramatic effect, but by this time our berries were thawed out and Remi was dying to eat those faces.

apple faces--after

To make it easier to see the difference, I put the “frown” and the “smile” together so Remi could see how each was affected.

apples with and without lemon juice

I explained that the “frown” turned brown because when we cut the slice, it allowed oxygen to come into contact with that part of the apple. The “smile,” on the other hand, was protected because the lemon juice stopped the browning process. I had her taste a plain slice and a lemon-brushed slice to show her that the lemon juice doesn’t really affect the taste…but she wasn’t buying it, and insisted the one that had been brushed tasted terrible. Oh, well. We ate the rest of the fruit and called it a day. 😉

Next up, we learned about the life cycle of an apple tree. (Please note that this post contains affiliate links. You can read my disclosure here.) We began by reading this book:

Then we closed the book and opened an apple, so we could look at the seeds for ourselves.

apple seeds

We counted the seeds and compared that to what the book said, and we also noted the star pattern that shows if you cut the apple just the right way. Of course, as she always does when we eat apples, Remi wanted me to twist the stem while saying the alphabet so we could see who she’s going to marry. (Did you do that as a child? Whatever letter the stem comes off on is supposed to be the first letter of your future spouse’s name. Brings back memories, huh?)

I liked How Do Apples Grow? because it gave lots of detailed information about the apple tree’s life cycle, but walked us through it in a way that she (and I) could easily understand. One of the facts that struck me was that it takes about 50 leaves to make enough sugar (using air, water, and sunlight) to feed one apple. (Isn’t that amazing?) I wasn’t sure whether my daughter would really grasp how many leaves that is, so I ducked into the kitchen and grabbed a box of toothpicks, and together we counted out 50 of them onto the table.

50 toothpicks representing 50 leaves

You could use cereal pieces, pennies, buttons, paper clips—anything you have 50 of on hand—to illustrate this point. Remi got the message, but then just wanted to play with the toothpicks and make them “rain.”

Next, we wanted to make something visual to represent the life cycle we’d learned about, so we created a craft I found on Making Learning Fun. She painted a paper plate green…

…and while it dried, we reviewed what God is doing to the apples and apple trees during each season (using the template from the link above.) She colored and cut them out while we talked, and then I mixed them up and asked her to glue them to her tree in the correct order.

apple tree life cycle

We glued on a trunk, hand cut from brown construction paper, and at supper that night she used it to tell her family what she’d learned—always a great review!

Finally, we spent some time talking about the different kinds of apples God makes for us. We looked at a chart (no longer available, but based on this site) to see some of the many varieties there are. (For that matter, you could take a field trip to a grocery store with a great produce department and see several for yourself!)

We looked at three different varieties to see the similarities and differences in size, shape, and color.

apple varieties

We checked to see if there was a difference in what they weigh, in this very scientific fashion:

weighing apples

Then, we did a little taste test to see which we liked best.

We also chose one variety (Granny Smith–Remi’s favorite) and used it to fill out this Observations Worksheet:

apple observations worksheet

If you have a very young child, you might want to have her do this worksheet. Plus, you can download a really cute cut-and-paste science worksheet called “Apple Parts” from this site.

I hope you enjoy these fun science activities with your little one. Be sure to check out the final two posts in this series, Ten Apples Up on Top and Apple Wrap-up, as well.

Today seems like a great day to share some of the pumpkin activities we’ve been doing over the last couple of weeks. First, and most important, here’s a fun Bible lesson you can do with your children while you carve your pumpkins. As you scoop out the pumpkin “guts,” explain that those are like the sins in our lives—yucky, stinky, and disgusting!

pumpkin guts--sin in our lives

As babies, we are created pure and clean by God. But eventually, we begin to understand the difference between right and wrong. As we get older, we begin to sin, and our lives get more and more full of that yucky, STINKY sin.

stinky sin, like pumpkin guts

However, as we get to know God and His will better by reading His Word (Romans 10:17), we begin to understand how our sin hurts God, and it makes us incredibly sad. The Bible calls this being “cut to the heart” (Acts 2:37).

cut to the heart--pumpkin Bible lesson

Once we get to that point, we desperately want to DO something about all that rotten sin we are carrying around, but we can’t do it on our own. We need Jesus to remove all those stinky sins for us!


Sin is like those stinky pumpkin guts–and we need JESUS to remove it for us!

As you talk with your children, be sure they know HOW this happens. Here is a fantastic explanation of how to be saved—according to God’s plan, not man’s. Not only does it contain relevant Scriptures, but the analogies of the sandwich and the door are excellent, and your child will easily understand them! Once we are saved, Jesus’ light begins to shine in us. (II Corinthians 4:6)

Jesus' light shines in us!

In fact, once we become Christians, people who look at us shouldn’t see “the old us” anymore. They should see the light of Jesus shining whenever they look at us. (Matthew 5:16)

People should see the light of Jesus when they look at us

Please note that I am NOT indicating that young children are ready to be saved, or even have such a need. In every single example in the Bible, those who became Christians were older. But, now is absolutely the time to be teaching your young children about God’s plan of salvation, because 1) they’re going to need to follow this plan themselves, eventually, and 2) they’ll hear a whole lot of conflicting information from the world, and need to know what the Bible really says. If you finish your Bible lesson and haven’t completely lost your appetite from the gunk you handled, you and your child can whip up a yummy dessert: pumpkin pie minis. You can find the recipe here, and then gather up these items, plus some milk to make the pudding:

pumpkin pie minis, ingredients

Once you provide the ingredients, your little one can prepare a lot of this dessert by himself, mixing the milk and pudding mix with a whisk, and stiring spoonfuls of pudding and pumpkin filling into the mini-crusts. If you use Cool Whip instead of whipped cream, he could even add a dollop to each mini, and they’ll be ready to eat immediately!

pumpkin pie minis

My daughter was so proud to serve these to her family, and their response provided great reinforcement for her efforts. If you want something even easier, you can try something like this mix for pumpkin spice cookies:

pumpkin spice cookie mix

Yes, I realize you could start from scratch…but when I saw this mix at Aldi for less than $2.00, I knew it would be fun to let Remi have a project she could help with that would yield super-quick results.

pumpkin spice cookies--kid baked

As you may have guessed, all these cookies came from kid-rolled balls. And they were delicious! We put some cream cheese frosting on some of them, but they were eaten up before I could get a picture. (Imagine that!) Finally, here’s a fun and easy pumpkin art project your little one can do. Get out your supply of old acrylic paints…you know, the ones you collected a decade or two ago and still have sitting around, just in case? (Yeah, those.) Put down some newspaper, or go outside—or both, as we did—and grab a few of the mini pumpkins you couldn’t resist on your last grocery trip.

pumpkin painting

And now the fun begins! Simply shake up some paint, hand it over to your child, and let the squeezing begin.

easy pumpkin painting

Remi had fun choosing the colors and layering them on her little pumpkins. It was a great way to keep her happy while older siblings were actually getting to carve their bigger ones.

pumkin art

At this point, your child could add glitter, googly eyes, or whatever else her little heart desires…but we thought these were beautiful just as they were.

I’ve seen these all over Pinterest, but will give credit to Time to Play since her blog was the first place I saw them. Of course, if you haven’t already done so, you’ll want to complete your pumpkin study with a trip to your local pumpkin patch!

It’s Halloween, and that means lots of fun projects with our little ones! Here are a couple of children’s book-related crafts, a healthy snack, and a fun Halloween lunch idea to help you make the most of the day with your little goblin!

(Please note that this post contains affiliate links. You can read my disclosure here.)

First up, an easy snack loaded with fun AND nutrition–can’t beat that, right?

healthy Halloween snack

As you can see, it’s just a banana and a few cutie oranges, accessorized with some candy pieces to make them spooky and fun. (I used m&m’s for the eyes, and Twizzler pieces for the pumpkin stems.) I found this idea a while back in one of those random little ads on Facebook and couldn’t wait to try it out with my youngest. And it didn’t disappoint! I set it up and started calling out, “Eek! There are ghosts in the pumpkin patch!” Remi came running to see what all the commotion was about, and her face was priceless when she saw her snack. (We have talked extensively about the fact that ghosts are not real, just silliness, so she is not afraid. Use discretion and common sense, based on your child’s age and sensitivity level.)

Next, we read this fun book:

I don’t want to give away the ending, but let’s just say the little guy in Where’s My Mummy? and I definitely have something in common. After enjoying the book, we got busy on our mummy craft. We grabbed a mason jar and some white muslin cloth, which we ripped into strips to wrap around the jar. We used a paintbrush dipped in a mixture of equal parts white glue and water, which we brushed on to adhere the cloth to the jar. While it was still wet, we added a couple of huge googly eyes to our little mummy.

jar mummy

My daughter wanted to add a mouth and nose, so while I was out of the room, she had her older sister help her do so with food coloring. (The little boogers…)

Then we dropped in a candle…

candle in mason jar mummy

…and ended up with this adorable Halloween decoration.

Where's My Mummy craft

I found the idea over at Time for Play. You might want to try this cute mummy craft, as well.

Then, when it’s time for lunch, why not whip up a fun and tasty jack-o-lantern pizza like this?

Jack-o-lantern pizza

It’s easy! Just add whatever toppings your little goblin loves in the shape of eyes, nose, and crooked mouth. I copied the idea from a poster in the window of Papa Murphy’s (a take-and-bake pizza chain), and we make one every year.

After lunch, it’s time for another fun book and craft. Stellaluna is the story of a baby bat who is separated from his mother and raised by birds, finally learning who he is and that we can all be friends despite our differences.

I found a cute idea for a bat craft over at Reading Confetti, but changed it up a little out of pure laziness. Rather than trace and cut out hand prints on black paper (which you could certainly do if you are less lazy), I painted Remi’s hands black and let her press them on white cardstock, adding googly eyes while we reviewed the fact that bats CAN see (despite the long-standing myth that they are blind.)

You might also want to give this little bat craft a whirl.

Finally, check out this post for some fun pumpkin activities, including snacks, an art project, and a very special Bible lesson.

Enjoy learning together…even on Halloween!

So far this week, I’ve shared some fun Apple Math ideas and Apple Snack ideas, and today I want to share an apple-related Bible lesson on the Trinity. (Please note that this post contains affiliate links. You can read my disclosure here.)

The concept of three Persons in one God can can be difficult to understand, even for adults. How in the world do you explain it to a young child?

The answer: Read them this book!

It’s the best book for children I’ve ever seen on this subject.

3 in 1: A Picture of God does a great job of explaining what tends to be a tricky concept for all of us, and the best part is that once you read it, you can go back and review the subject every time you cut open an apple! The skin, flesh, and core (together, ONE apple) will always remind your child (and you!) that the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit are ONE God serving different functions.

Of course, the moment we finished the book, we pulled out an apple and cut it in half to examine the different parts.

parts of apple

We reviewed the function of each part, and then I had her tell me how God is like an apple and how the different Persons of the Godhead function in our lives.


Do you know of an effective way to explain the Godhead? Please share any you’ve used with success in the comments section below.

Apple week continues! Today I’m sharing some fun apple-themed snacks we did, starting with these:

Apple Smiles

Not only are they hilarious in their presentation, these toothy grin snacks were easy to make, too. All you need are apple slices, peanut butter, and mini-marshmallows to make the laughiest snack ever!

apple smile

I showed Remi how to make the first one, and then she made the others for her siblings. I heard each one laughing out loud as she presented them. So much fun!

more apple smiles

(I found the recipe on Pinterest, and was unable to trace it back to an original source.)

Apple Shake-Ups

Want an even easier snack? All you need to do is cut an apple into bite-sized chunks, removing the core of course….

preparing apple shake-ups

…and then put them in a zipper bag with a mixture of cinnamon and sugar, and let your child shake, shake, shake away! The result was delicious! (And Remi had a blast “making it herself.”)

apple shake-ups snack

Did I mention how tasty these were? I think I might go make some more right now. (Thanks, Mess for Less, for the awesome recipe!)

Apple lunch

I realize people have mixed feelings about serving their child “cute food.” But I have to say that this was just too fun to pass up, so we created an entire lunch for our apple week, based on a loose adaptation of Muffin Tin Mom‘s idea.

apple lunch in a muffin tin

I used m&m’s instead of Skittles and added green ones, too…and I also added some applesauce. The sandwiches are “apple barrels,” and to make them I just smeared some peanut butter and honey on slices of wheat bread and rolled them up. There’s one inside the “apple tree” as well, but after I’d almost finished creating it, my 12-year-old pointed out that it would have been easier to just smear peanut butter on the broccoli stem and just add the pretzels around that. Wish she’d mentioned that sooner!  Of course, we served this lunch alongside a cold glass of apple juice.

To make that fun, “wormy apple,” I cut it in half and filled the middle with peanut butter before inserting the gummy worms, then stuck it all back together. I used a melon baller to make the holes.

making a wormy apple snack

Trust me, your child will love this lunch! It’s worth the little bit of extra effort it will take to prepare it.

Apple Parfaits

Usually, I collect and share the creative ideas of others, but every great once in a while, I come up with my own original one. Enter, apple parfaits!

Here’s all you need: Graham crackers (We used cinnamon!), whipped cream, and a can of prepared apple pie filling.

apple parfait prep

The beauty of this dessert is that your child can make it all by herself! Have her crush the graham crackers into crumbs…..and be sure you don’t have anywhere to go, as this will take WAY longer than you anticipate. 😉

She can do it herself!

Next, get some clear cups and have her layer the crushed graham crackers with the apple pie filling and whipped cream. Finally, pop in a spoon, and then sit back and bask in the happy reactions of all the dessert eaters in your house.

It tastes like apple pie in a cup! Mmmmmm…..
