Sorting Out Another Winner & A Few Details

We also appreciated the feedback labeling posts. Since it is our intent to post according to a theme or skill each day, we think it might be most logical to label by subject area. However, within the post we will do our best to label activities with appropriate age/skill levels for the activities. You will notice in the future that some of our posts have subtitles for age groups and others may list approximate skill levels. We do acknowledge, and agree, that not all students of specific ages are ready for specific skills. Use our age-leveled subtitles as a flexible guideline.

On that note, we could use more feedback here, please!
What ages are the kids you work with & have in mind when you check ABC and 123 for educational activities.


  1. I think labeling by subject is a really good idea! :)

    I have 3 1/2 year old twins and a 1 1/2 year old that follows right along behind!

  2. I have a 19 month old.

  3. I come looking for more ideas for my almost 3 and 4 year olds. I am just loving your site.

  4. 2-3 year age group...and soon my baby too. He is just five months though.

    I appreciate the younger age group since there are tons of preschool age stuff out there...but this is a great site for all ages.

    I think labeling by subject with an age category is great! Really, the ideal would be to do both, but that may take some thinking!

  5. Just a 15 month old here, but I save the ideas that I think we'll enjoy when he's a bit older, too.

  6. I'm so excited that I won the giveaway! Thank you.

    My daughter will be 5 in May. I also have a nephew that is 6 and am always looking for ideas of activities they can do together.

  7. I'm looking for ideas for 3 and 4 year olds.

  8. I work with young 3's to advanced 5 year old's at my preschool and have a 3 (almost 4) and 5 year old! - but I also would love to read about ideas for even younger children.

  9. my boys are 7 and almost 2. i love finding toddler activities for my youngest to do:)

  10. I'm loving your site! I teach a classroom of 3 to 5 year olds and have a 21 month old of my own.
