Where to Find the Best Free learning Activities for Kids – An A to Z List

Free Educationalย Activities for Kids that will Make Homeschooling a Cinch

When I started to teach at home it was because I wanted to have a positive influence for my baby to enjoy exploring and learning. Plus I had absolutely no idea how fast babies move once they start walking.

So once Sophia started (at 10 months) I was both filled with pride and then completely stumped on how to keep her – well still, for lack of a better term.

I didn’t want to hold her back from experiencing her new found mobility but I did find myself out of both breath and sanity at the end of the day. I have stayed awake many nights wondering how I could make this work for both of us.

I did my research being the bookworm that I am and thus began our journey of homeschooling and setting up activities for my child to learn, explore, and play. Sometimes we do learning activities together and other times I can set up one for her to do independently.

I found out very fast that as a new parent if I wanted my child to learn, I would need to find ways to encourage learning and that I would be the one to do it.

  • Did you want to share a link with us that is not in the post? What is your go to learning online website?

  • Wow, what wonderful information! That must’ve taken forever to compile!

    • Thank you G.F.C.G. :)! This way my first time making a massive list and I am glad you found it useful.

  • What a great list you have here! I’m sure I’ll be referring to it again and again. Thanks for sharing with the #BlogFair, hope you can visit again this week.

    • Thank you for the kind words Karen! I agree with you to use this as a resource and it has saved me from wasting time to search for the right website. I am glad you find it useful ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Hi Karen! I am so happy you found the list useful. I am the same way, I save things and refer back to it later if I need inspiration for kids activities. It is a big time saver / life saver. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • This is a great resource for all moms and teachers! Thank you for taking the time to put this together! Awesome Job.

    • Thank you Diona! I am glad you like it and I am also a big fan of your site!

    • Thank you Diona! I am happy you like it and I am also a big fan of your blog – All Day Everyday Mom. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Caroline Vieyra

    I’m saving this; my daughter is going to love these for homeschool

    • Thanks Caroline, I am glad you found it helpful for your daughter. There is great activities for when the grand kids visit you too. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Thank you Caroline! ๐Ÿ™‚ I hope your daughter enjoys the list and gets some helpful ideas. She has a wonderful mom to share it with her!

  • Karin Rambo

    This is a very thorough list! Thanks for sharing all of your wisdom!

    • It’s my pleasure Karin, thank you! This is the combination of many great blogger’s work & wisdom that has helped me on my homeschool journey.

    • Thank you Karin! This is the wisdom of all kinds of blogs and websites that have helped my family and it feels great to share it with you. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Will be looking for this for my son as soon as he goes to sleep. Thanks for sharing.

    • Thank you Iman, I do the same when my DD is asleep! ๐Ÿ™‚ That is the perfect time to put together a few special activities or lessons for the kids. When they wake up, I recommend setting some activities out for them like an “invitation” to see what they are drawn to. It can be a good way of learning what interest’s them and expanding from there. Plus, books out in the open works wonders.

    • Hi Iman, I hope you find some fun ideas to play at home with your son. My daughter didn’t always show interest in some of my activities, but I would save it for later or set it out for her to visit when she liked. Good luck, and let us know how he is doing when you can. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Thank you Courtney and I couldn’t agree more about reading together. That was our first activity together- reading lots of books. ๐Ÿ’•
