Wow! We had some wonderful link-ups last week. If you link up, you permit me to use your pictures/ideas as part of future posts. I couldn’t pick just one to highlight, so I’ll pick three that are super creative and fun for families. To see the entire post just click on the link or image and you can enjoy these fantastic ideas!
First I’d like to highlight Kirstylee and Cassidy over at MomsHaveQuestionsToo.com who shared a brilliant tutorial on how to make home-made bath tub crayons. My boys love bath time and I can’t wait to get the supplies and try this at home. This makes for a frugal craft that makes for family fun during bath time.
The other project that I know will fascinate my two boys is from Bella Manu at Art Club Blog, a former textiles designer turned art instructor to her little ones. She created this fantastic craft project to enjoy with her children using their fingerprints. I happen to know some grandparents who would love a project like this as a momento of their grandsons. Put these in the shape of a heart and voila – you have an awesome valentine too!
Finally I had to laugh at Leah at Simple Home Blessings who decided that she and her little one needed to “thin out the bear population” in their home and decide to enjoy a “Bear Hunt in the Wild”. What a great way to enjoy time together and learn about animals. Thanks Leah!
Thanks so much to everyone who linked up. We’re not quite at 25 ideas but once we have 25 I’ll run the contest and pick another winner for the free Jewelry. I truly enjoy connecting with others and I love sharing what God is teaching me in the areas of mothering, parenting, discipleship, and marriage. I hope you are enjoying joining me on the journey.
Family Fun Friday is great for readers of Happy and Blessed Home to learn about some great ideas for Family Fun. If you are reading this blog post and leave a COMMENT you will be entered into the drawing for a free necklace or pair of earrings. To leave a comment click the header and it will take you to a page where you can leave a comment.
Bloggers, for you, there are two ways to WIN:
1. Leave a comment (1 entry) – be sure your comment includes an idea for Family Fun
2. Link your blog post (5 entries)
If you do both, you get six entries. How easy is that? Necklaces and Earrings pictured below. Cheri picked the green necklace and Jenn picked the red. Our next winner can select either the multicolored (corals and neutrals) necklace or a pair of earrings – how fun is that!
For my blogging friends, as announced in Announcing Family Fun Friday Link Up Party, to win, link a post with the following in mind:
- Family Friendly
- Any activity that could be translated into something FUN for the family to do
- You can post on preschool activities, homeschool ideas, fun in the kitchen, things to read, games, crafts, anything that could be fun for two or more members of a family
- Family traditions make great ideas too!
If you’re going to blog it may as well be for free jewelry! I will run the contest when I have 25 ideas for family fun.
It’s just my way of meeting new bloggers and building community on the topic of having fun with our families. I pray you’ll join us every Friday for Family Fun Friday and I’ll keep giving away jewelry till it’s all gone (I have about 30 pieces). I will add my favorites from your posts to my Pintrest board to showcase your ideas. Thanks for linking with me here at Happy and Blessed Home. AND I’ve added a linky tool to my link parties list. If you host a link party please add it so myself, and my fellow bloggers can link up with you too!
As a courtesy, readers and bloggers, you can make this link up even better:
- Link as many posts as you want (or share your ideas in the comments)
- Please visit at least one other blogger and leave a comment. Bloggers love comments!
- A link back to http://HappyandBlessedHome.com is helpful but not required- thanks!
I pray you are blessed by this effort to share ideas on having Family Fun.
