We have an adventuresome bunch of bloggers at Family Fun Friday! Check out these fun and relevant posts for imagining, creating and cherishing time with family.
- Ashley over at Life with Moore Babies caught my attention with the adorable Dragon Puppet she made from two egg cartons. Look at how big his teeth are! My boys would go crazy over a puppet like this – I think I may have to make one!
- Sara from Brainstorm in Bloom shared this wonderful Pumpkin Treasure Hunt. In it she shares free printable “clues” so you can conduct your own pumpkin treasure hunt with your kiddos at home. Suggested ages are from 2 to 10 years old.
- Becky from Your Modern Family shared a wonderful post about the Importance of Playing with Your Children. Becky writes, “When you are playing, it may look like just play to your child, but you are teaching them, molding them, encouraging them…”
- Paula at Beauty Through Imperfection shared an enlightening post about Trying not to Say No Too Much. She writes, “Sometimes I pause for the 16 seconds it requires to take a peek at the world through the lens of a 2 year old.” A great perspective Paula!
- Tammy from Creative K Kids shared some wonderful Thanksgiving Printables and Worksheets. I downloaded and printed these for our family. Tammy – thank you for sharing this wonderful resource!
- Missy from Dot to Dot Connections shared a wonderful post about her family’s Camping Trip. Missy, my family would love a trip just like the one you took! Her post comes with a free printable.
We’ve got some very creative cooking going on with our expert foodie bloggers this week. Check out these delicious and decadent posts!
- Jamie from Love Bakes Good Cakes posted this Spanish Tilapia. I need more fish recipes so I’m thankful for this post!
- Beth over at The First Year Blog shared some yummy looking Quinoa Black Bean Tacos. I never would have thought of this Beth so I’m glad you shared this. 🙂
- Christine over at I Dig Pinterest knows what its like to be a busy mom. With her Hurry-Up Chicken Pot Pie she has created a tasty and filling dish that is much faster than the traditional. Don’t know what to make for dinner? Check out Christine’s post.
- I also loved these Chicken Cordon Bleu bundles from Christine at I Dig Pinterest. I think it’s a creative take on a classic dish. My family would love these.
- Stacy from Stacy Makes Cents shared a recipe using one of my favorite ways to cook – use a crock-pot 🙂 Her Crock Pot Tuscan Chicken looks great and sounds simple to make.
- And just to round out all this healthy eating, I had to highlight these Pumpkin Butter Doughnuts by Gina from Klienworth and Co. Are they breakfast or dessert? I dunno – I think they could be both!
Absolutely brilliant ideas by these amazing bloggers who are sharing some wonderful ways to teach young children. If you like this list please PIN it!
- According to Colleen in her post Raising Life Long Learners, “Did you know that projects and hobbies, and even musical instruments can have an even greater impact on developing work ethics in kids than chores?” What a great tip – thanks Colleen for your post!
- Quiet Time with Our Teenagers is a guest post by Naomi over at Our Joy Filled Life. I love how her family is learning how to have quite time and how they are using it to help their children be disciplined in the study of God’s word.
- Lindze over at Interior Fun shared some adorable FREE prinatables – Transition Charts for Kids. It’s a great way to ease your little one into their next activity. Thank you for sharing Lindze!
- Georgina from Craftulate shared a marvelous post on Science Experiments for Beginners. I think all preschoolers would love these!
- Cathy over at By God’s Grace shared her Bible in A Year post complete with printables and some great ideas.
- Katie at Paradise Praises shared a fun way to teach little ones, she focuses on Delight Inspired Learning. She writes, “No one likes to do anything he does not enjoy. And everyone likes to do those things in which he finds delight! It’s simple. Education means more, sticks longer, and serves us better when it is motivated by delight!” Great insight. 🙂
Thanks again for all your wonderful ideas! I hope these Family Friendly and Fun ideas inspire you.
I pray you are blessed by this effort to share ideas on having Family Fun.
