    Happy Blogiversary!!!

    How do you choose a favorite? Your rainbow collage is the one I’ve done with my kids (over several days), and I have PLANS to do your sticky paper with craft sticks activity (top right in the collage for this post) soon – I think that one is pure genius!

  2. says

    A favorite? Impossible! So I’ll go with our first instead. It’s been almost 3 years because the first craft we ever did was the Valentines heart sun catcher! It’s probably close to our favorite because we’ve also made shamrocks, Easter bunnies, snowmen and christmas trees!

  3. Teresa says

    Happy birthday! You’re one of my very favorite blogs, and I’ve used far too many of your ideas to pick a favorite, but if you’re going to press me to name one, I’m a fan of the sandpaper & yarn idea.

  4. Marie says

    Happy Birthday! Our current favorite is the simple sheet of sticky contact paper with popsicle sticks. Congrats on such a great blog!

  5. says

    Favorite? I don’t have a favorite. I love how you inspire us to use what we already have around the house. The Angry Bird water balloons is fun!

  6. salreem says

    I like the multicultural paper dolls post. I like the values and ideas that you try to teach through your activities. Thanks!

  7. says

    We love the song videos. We’ve picked up a lot of our favorites from this site. (my 1.5 year old is currently stuck on the “great big dinosaur” song). Happy Birthday!

  8. Sandra says

    I love so many it’s hard to pick one. We loved the shaving cream moon picture though! Thanks for all the great ideas! It helps me stay creative with my little guys and not get stuck in a rut!

  9. LB says

    Happy Birthday!!! So hard to pick a favorite post. But my favorite posts overall are the craft posts. I make A LOT of them with my daughter. Your ideas are creative, fun, and easily put together. Thank you!!!

  10. Mel says

    This blog has inspired me to do so many crafts with my children for the past three years I’ve been a reader. Thank you!!!
    One of my kids’ favorite things to do has been the build-your-own haunted house using the sticky-back foam. In October, they can sit forever and build, rebuild, and imagine with this wonderful toy we built!

  11. jodie says

    My fav post was the pizza delivery game that taught reading skills that was such a great idea. My kids loved it!

  12. Karen says

    We’ve used many of your ideas, but the most recent was snowman at night earlier this week and today we made valentine’s cards with paint and cookie cutters- a hit with all ages (2-8).

  13. Rebecca B says

    Of course I love all your book suggestions and reviews. The first post that popped into my head was “Santa Themed Math Game” with a picture of Santa, numbers written on his beard, dice and marshmallows. We haven’t tried that game though.

  14. Whitney says

    Love the heart flower bouquet. My son made those for his grandma a few years back & she still has them in a vase.

  15. nicole says

    my daughter loved the Design Your Own Lacing Pattern post- we made a bunch of them, with some left over needlepoint canvas her aunt had!

  16. lori says

    It’s impossible to pick just one! I really enjoy the letter of the week activities, and the name stamps.

  17. Sarah J says

    That is a tough one….the angry bird games are always a hit though. I mostly like though that I can come and look on your side bar for just about any topic that my kids are interested in and find an activity/book to go along with it.

  18. says

    Love most of your posts….that’s why we are still loyal readers. We have lots we like, but the first that I can think of is the colored glue post. We had (and still do have) a lot of fun with that.

  19. Sarah says

    How do you choose just one favorite post????
    I think my favorite is always when you highlight new favorite books. I’ve gotten so many great ideas from your blog!!!

  20. Julie says

    Happy Birthday! Congratulations!
    Oh, which is a favorite post…I LOVE your sensory tubs, they are always so creative and give me such great ideas! Thanks!

    Happy Birthday!!! I love all of your posts, but my daughter’s current fav is Vet Clinic Pretend Play. she can’t get enough of taking care of her animals thanks to your post.

  22. Jamie says

    I have the painters tape out to hang some craft paper to the wall and let my 3 year old go crazy! I think that he’ll love it! Thank you for ALL your wonderful ideas and happy birthday to you! 🙂

  23. Laura says

    Thanks so much for all of your creativity and knowledge! I love the huge alphabet mural idea. My kids are having a blast with it and helps so much with the vertical surface! Happy 4th birthday to you.:)

  24. says

    Happy blogiversary!! I have too many posts that are favorites… so this is going to be tough!! I loved the magnetic puzzle that you did, last week’s love bomb, magnetic weather center from awhile ago, and any of your ideas that had to do with trash trucks!!

  25. momstown Calgary says

    I’m not eligible to win, but I wanted to say Happy Birthday, and to thank you for all of the wonderful ideas you have shared over the past four years. I have found so many great ideas, and books, and so much inspiration on your site.

  26. Janet says

    Happy Birthday! I’ve only recently discovered your bog and LOVE it! I guess if I have to pick, the sensory tubs would be a fave. 🙂

  27. Sarah says

    It’s impossible to pick a favorite! All of your crafts and activities are just wonderful and I have been so blessed by your blog and creativity!! Thank you so much! I guess if I had to pick a favorite…… your Letter of the Week crafts are awesome!

    Happy Anniversary!!

  28. Lisa says

    Picking one favorite is a difficult task! I love all of the crafts and activities, it is great to have all of these ideas in a busy moms back pocket. I wish my daycare would pick up on some of these ideas too…

  29. Carmen says

    I recently discovered your blog and love it! IT gives me all sorts of inspiration for my 1.5 yr old and 3.5 yr old. My favorite so far, is the cotton ball snowflake…so simple and easy for both kids to do, and they loved it!

  30. says

    We loved the peek-a-boo submarine craft. I was so excited to run across it one day when desperate for something to keep my four year old busy. My seven year old wanted to make one, too, when he got home from school.

  31. Allison says

    No offense to you, but I love the posts that have been shared by Katy (thematic units with focus on special needs).

  32. allison says

    I am currently loving all of your alphabet letter ideas! we’re right in that stage… thanks for all your ideas!

  33. says

    My favorite post is the ice cream cone christmas trees. I do it with my daughter every year now.

  34. Tamara says

    I love all of your posts! I honestly cannot pick just one. We have used so many of your ideas! I am excited to try your habitat sorting, since we have been talking about animals and features they share and that are different. =)

  35. Robin says

    Happy Birthday!
    You inspired our “letter of the week” activity time and it is helping my 3 y/o learn and recognize his letters through fun and playful ideas. Thank you!!! Be blessed. Be well.

  36. says

    Oh, Allie! There are so many posts that I love so dearly. You captured one of my favorites above in your collage (shockingly). I am mildly obsessed with emotional intelligence and the development of…so your emotions board book customized to your son hit home for me. I recently made a “My Family” board book for my older son and have “My Favorite Things” and a “Where I Live” books in the works…thank you for your inspiration and for, on many days, being my muse…

  37. says

    Happy Blog Birthday! I have loved your blog for years! I printed off your “Playdough Recipes I Love!” post in November 2008. I still use those playdough recipes today. When my son was younger, his is 5 now, we followed along with all of your incredible letter of the week ideas. Thanks so much for providing this blog and sharing your creative learning ideas. I have really appreciated them.
