Thanks to all my blogging friends for linking up last week at Family Fun Friday. I have a special YouTube Video for you at Thank You All My Blogging Friends! So many great ideas, crafts and things to do! If you link up, you permit me to use your pictures/ideas as part of future posts and/or social media. Now on to some fabulous posts for moms.
I love that so many of your ideas are themed around fall. These posts inspire me to make memories with my little ones. I need a bucket list every fall. Check out these inspiring bloggers.
- I just thought these were adorable. I can totally see doing this as a family activity with my boys. It would be messy sensory play and a great way to get them to eat all at the same time. These Jack O lantern candy corn apples from Gina at Klienworth and Co would make for a fun activity.
- Kim over at Stuffed Suitcase shared this great post Apple picking fall fun. What a wonderful way to celebrate fall and have fun together as a family.
- Phyllis at Grandparents Plus shared a family fun post 15+ Thanksgiving Games for Family Fun. Check out her post for some great ideas.
- Bake thru the Bible by Create with Joy is a review about a book that expands upon a marvelous idea – baking as a way to teach children about the Bible. Brilliant and a great way to spend time with young children – cooking in the kitchen.
- Lisha from TheBlishBlog shared this adorable description of her favorite time of day – Tea Time with her daughters. What a great idea Lisha!
- LalyMom shared some super fun activities to teach children about fire safety in her post Three Fire Safety Activities This is mommy creativity at it’s best – making learning about something very serious lots of fun to do. It’s also a great way to spend time together.
So some recipes are healthy – like the skillet meals, pasta sauce and apple and onion pulled pork. And some aren’t quite so healthy… french fries and chocolate cake. Yum!
- Stacy at Stacy makes Sense shared 25 Healthy Skillet Meals. She writes, “no cream of soups included or boxed ingredients. Just honest-to-goodness food.” And Stacy cooks with real butter – so do I Stacy! Great round-up.
- Beth cooked up these delicious looking Homemade Crispy French Fries on The First Year Blog. I love my fries extra crispy so this was a great post.
- Gina from Klienworth & Co. does it again with her New England Dip Sandwich. My husband would love this – it features his favorite ingredient – meat!
- And Alice’s Slow cooked pasta sauce for kids over at Mums Make Lists is more than just a sauce. Alice writes, ” I have discovered a slow cooked pasta sauce that is even better because it lets you cram in even more hidden vegetables than you would think possible in one sauce!”
- Susan from Flavours by Four shared this delicious-looking Chocolate Sour Cream Bundt Cake. In this season of apples and pumpkins it’s nice to see such a yummy chocolaty desert.
- Sarah at Thank you Honey Blog shared a slow cooker Apple Onion Pulled Pork. She Writes, “It’s healthy, Paleo, Gluten Free, Low- Fat, and Low Carb.”
Inspired learning fun from some talented bloggers! If you like this list please PIN it!
- Kim from Write Shop shared Writing Activity Centers for Family Fun filled with great ideas to teach children how to write even if they are reluctant writers.
- Tanya from Finding the Teachable Moments shared some great Ideas for Cooking with Kids. I love how hands-on she makes the experience with her kids. For some great ideas check out Tanya’s post.
- Cathy at Growing in God’s Grace shared Bible in a Year with your kids. She has some great ideas and posts weekly on the topic.
- Homemaking with Heart shared Homeschooling Preschoolers – using what you have. Using things we already have is so practical. If I need something new I always check to see if I can get it used somewhere. Great post!
- My son is very interested in learning to read so I really like these FREE Dolch Site Word Cards. Thanks Pinkie Fae for sharing these.
- And Crafty Moms Share did a leaf hunt and craft – a tactile learning experience perfect for fall.
