my new blog: little learners

June 10, 2010

I recently started a new blog on a site called If you don't live in Georgia, that's okay, you can still read my blog!

It's called Little Learners and my goal is that it be a resource for parents who want to encourage a life-long love of learning in their children.

In other words, it's a lot like Silly Eagle Books, but it doesn't focus completely on books. I can actually write a post and not have to tie a book to it!

Don't get me wrong, I love that this blog has a niche, but sometimes Juliet and I do fun activities that don't necessarily go with a book we've read. Now I have a place to share those ideas and more freedom to explore different topics.

I haven't written too many posts yet, but my vision for it right now is to share simple and fun learning activities that parents can throw together fairly easily from everyday items. I've been working on a series focused on activities you can do with coins and have come up with some fun ideas like

I would also like to feature great ideas from other blogs--that's where I need your help. You all are amazingly talented and I am constantly inspired by your blogs every day. If you have a blog that you wouldn't mind me featuring a project or craft from, let me know.

I will just use one picture and of course, include a link back to your blog. I've featured two great ideas so far:

DIY Latches Board  from Let's Go Fly at Kite
Butterfly Matching Activity from Toddler Approved

I will also be sharing some of our Georgia-related adventures like

I hope you'll stop by and check it out! I don't post every day, but am trying to get two or three posts a week going. Leave a comment and say hi! Right now, it's pretty silent in the comment arena! 

Again, if you'd like to submit an idea or just give me permission to peruse your blog and choose an idea, email me at! Thanks! Can't wait to hear from you!

What a cool concept, and I imagine it is a challenge to constantly have to come up with ideas related to books to post on.
Feel free to use anything you see on my site.

Girlfriend, you are amazing. One active preschooler, a baby on the way, and you're starting a new blog! I hear you on the always having to find a book to match the activity. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with on the new site! :)

The new blog is looking great! Thanks for putting my visual discrimination activity on there.

I love your idea of sorting coins! I'll have to use that for the little girl I babysit when she's ready. You've got some great ideas for helping kids to learn in practical and everyday ways!
