Imagine having irresistible learning activities at your fingertips.

No more relying on screen time, or scouring Pinterest for hours for ideas. Just done-for-you printable learning activities so you can spend more time playing with your kids than planning for them.

here’s the thing…

90% of your child’s brain growth happens before they hit kindergarten.

During this time they are naturally curious about the world. And you have a window of opportunity to fuel that curiosity. To get them excited to learn. Build their confidence in themselves. Help them develop an internal motivation to learn that sticks with them through their teenage years and beyond.

But, Ummm, I have no time…

How are you supposed to find the time to research learning activities when your to-do list is a mile long and you can’t catch your breath long enough to even make sure you shower every day?

but guess what…
When I had my son, it hit me like a ton of bricks. The gut-wrenching responsibility of motherhood: do. not. mess. this. up. I knew my baby’s brain was craving information, but I didn’t know where to start. And I felt like I was failing as a mom.

What activities did he need to learn?
What was the right thing to focus on?

So I dug into research. With a doctorate in cognitive psychology, I started with what I knew: Piaget, schema learning, play theories and brain executive functioning. Then I added Montessori theories for practical life & closed-ended activities, Waldorf for imaginative play, respectful parenting techniques from Magda Gerber, and body movement & development from Emma Pikler.

And when my son was 9 months old, I made him his first toy (a Montessori ball drop) out of a cardboard box. It became his favorite activity and I was hooked.

At 2, I created his first cognitive activity. I laid out butterfly symmetry cards on our kitchen floor for him to match one side with it’s pair. He sat immersed in matching the butterflies, identifying patterns, for nearly 25 minutes.

And now? At 3, I can tell you there’s nothing better than when he asks me to play “mama activities” — from scavenger hunts, to sorting activities to board games. It’s our time we spend together, bonding and building his love of learning together.

And now you can use the same activities for your little one too.

busy parents Use These Activities for Family bonding games
These printable activities are used by busy moms like Ashley, who repurposed a single bug-matching activity into 3 different games, including a family game that included both her 2-year-old and 4-year-old. Her kids had a blast while they bonded as a family, and Ashley felt proud her little kiddos were learning at the same time.

“it was so fun to sit and play together while also knowing he was learning”

My 4 year old had a blast with these. We started out with a matching game and then started playing a memory game. My husband and I played with him, all taking turns for memory, and it was so fun to sit and play together while also knowing he was learning. The printouts are beautiful and I laminated them so they would last longer—they look so good! Plus, the instructions are really helpful. It comes with a lot of information about how to use them with your kiddos. My 2 year old also enjoyed playing with them—there are lots of cards, so we were able to set up a smaller matching game for him while the 4 year old played memory. Can’t recommend enough!

Meet the mom behind the activities…

Hi, I’m Stefanie

I started Little Moon because I wanted to create activities for preschoolers, because they are in such a unique window of time, full of curiosity, and we can fuel that by showing them how fun learning is.

But (with a background in cognitive psychology) it was really important to me to create activities that are backed by research & actually support healthy development. I see so many activities out there that are completely inappropriate for preschoolers (*ahem* looking at you, worksheets). Just because they’re easy doesn’t mean they’re good for your kid.

AND, I wanted to create activities that are beautiful, grounded in nature, and almost like little works of art. (Not over-stimulating, multi-colored designs filled with cartoonish clipart.) Like the Montessori emphasis on beauty in our environment, I think surrounding ourselves with high quality artistic materials, allows our brains to slow down and appreciate what’s in front of us.

So, I started designing hands-on activities for my son. And now I’m making them available to you and your family.

Hi, Mama, Is this You?

You’ve tried setting up elaborate activities before, only to have your energetic kid play with them for 12 seconds before giving up and declaring war on your cat’s tail.

And with no energy left, you hand them a screen (again), already dreading the inevitable fight of peeling it away from them later.
