These weeks seem to fly by and before we know it, it’s time to choose our features for the week
(something that we loooove to do!)
And we have big news for next week’s linky party.
Get your links ready to share, friends, because next week’s features will be fantastic! The Sugar Aunts and Teach Beside Me are teaming up to share a massive feature list. We are looking for fun, creative, summer play and learning activities for those days when the weather is just not cooperating for outdoor play! We are so excited to put this feature together. You know those summer days when the kids are out of school, you hear that whine, “I’m booooored”, and to top it all off, it’s storming outside or you just need a break from the sun? Our “Rainy Summer Days…Screen-Free Boredom Blasters” feature list will keep the kids playing, happy, and fight free!
So, what’s in it for you? All features will be part of a huge list of awesome play and learning activities! We will share with our followers on Facebook, Twitter, G+, and Pinterest–including all of our group Pinterest boards ((That’s around 208,000 potential new viewers just on those group boards!!)
We are VERY excited about next week’s features!
We went on a family hike last weekend. Found sticks. Searched for Smurfs. And booby traps.
We decided we are going to hit a bunch of cool local parks this summer Watch our Instagram feed to follow our #parktour 🙂
We went to our local library for a little art play. I love these toothpick fireworks we made!
(dip the toothpick in paint and lay it flat on the paper in a criss-crossing design. No real rules to this, it looks pretty neat no matter how you make your fireworks. Baby Girl sat at this table for a while dipping her toothpicks and dragging the paint across her paper. And hands. And shirt…)
And on to the good stuff…
Share It Saturday!!
