Share It Saturday #9 and Our Week in Review

Finally, the weekend is here! 
We love sharing our week with you, and love seeing what all of you have been up to too.  There were some great link-ups last week, thank you all for sharing. 

We had a blast this week making a bear cave in our living room.  This cave was there allll week.  We had a play-date with the cousins and all the kiddos were crawling around being bears!  By the end of the week the box was flat as a pancake:) 

While the kids were playing, us aunts had a brainstorming session.
You will have to check back later in the week to see what this picture is all about!
 It turned into something pretty awesome and we can't wait to share it with you!

Share It Saturday...
We join the gals at Golden Grasses and Teach Beside Me as co-hosts in our weekly link up party...

This week, we went with a book theme when deciding on our favorite links.  So, in 
Celebration of National Read Across America Day in honor of Dr. Seuss' Birthday...
We chose links that shared fun books or exciting learning-through-play to go along with the theme of a book.

Play-Trains played along with the story of a Thomas Book.  Complete with the characters and props. How Fun!
Making Boys Men Made super cute and completely fun Cat In The Hat peg dolls. I want to play with these :)
Learning and Growing The Piwi Way Shares some Princess books that are not the typical Princess stories.  We will be checking these out at the library!
The Measured Mom provides a large list of books following along with the Letter "F" theme. This is a great list of books!
Learning Is Messy prepared a learning and play theme to follow the book Good Night Gorilla. I love her ideas!
Pragmatic Mom shares a great grouping of Winter themed books.  We have read some of these and will be looking for the others.  

Do you have a great play/creative learning idea that you would like to share?  We would love to see it!  Here are the "rules" for the party:
