Learning Fun With the Magic Tree House Books & Activities

Several years ago I was apart of several book clubs that you could do with kids and we loved them. A lot of them were preschool and tot based and my girls outgrew them. It was a sad time for them and me.

But we progressed into chapter book reading and I love reading chapter books with my girls. You never know what will find that you like in the stories.

So when I heard about that bloggers were going to be doing a Magic Tree House activities. I just had to join!

Learning Fun With the Magic Tree House Activities - Fun activities you can do with all the Magic Tree House books, activities every two weeks - 3Dinosaurs.com

We have included links to some of the products and resources we have used with this activity. If you purchase via the links we may earn a small commission.

Each of my girls has read through the Magic Tree House series. When my oldest was just starting out we bought the Magic Tree House Boxed Set, Books 1-28. And we loved it. We had the books and could just jump from book to book. Plus I know that buying the books in groups is easier than buying them one at a time. Plus you can find these and used book stores as well!

My youngest is still making her way through the books. And it is fun to read them with her. So this book club comes at the right time for us.


How does this Magic Tree House Book Club Work?

Well, every two weeks a group of bloggers will do an activity based on the book. That means that is 24 weeks we will go through 12 books. Each blogger will blog about different activities so you have a wide range of activities to try out with the books. We are working the activities for kids ages 6 to 9.

I’ll be updating this page with my activities and links to other bloggers posts as well. This will be a great way to explore books plus loads of fun at the same time.

Magic Tree House Books and Activities

Every two weeks this page will get updated with new books and activities. You can see the book and some idea about the activities we did with the book.

Dinosaurs Before Dark

There is a fun spelling activity you can check out. It has several dinosaur names for kids to work on. Plus here is a dinosaur themed chapter book they can use as well.

Knight at Dawn

A great way to work on nouns and verbs from the book with a fun sorting activity. You have hands-on sorting and a writing activity they can do.

Mummies in the Morning

Another fun noun activity but this time working person, place, or thing. You have the hands-on sorting and the writing activity for using some of the nouns. All the nouns can be found somewhere in the books.

Pirates Past Noon

Every now and then we need a different way to learn a math skill. This has a fun hands-on division activity to teach or review for kids how to make groups out of a bigger number. It works on division with 2 sets of task cards, sorting mat, gems and recording sheet.

Gross motor happens to be one of our favorite activities to do. We loved our animal gross motor dice and thought it would be fun to have a set of gross motor activities for the rainforest!
