Thanksgiving and Christmas Crafts For Kids { link yours! }

preschool blogI know it’s not even Thanksgiving and already I am pinning Christmas crafts but for teachers, home daycare providers and well organized parents it’s time to plan for these amazing holidays. Even though the title of Link & Learn this week is Thanksgiving and Christmas crafts for kids please feel free to add other celebrations as well. I know that Hanukkah is starting mid December this year, Winter Solstice is the 21st, and Kwanzaa begins on December 26th. My point is that everything and everyone is welcomed. Thanksgiving and Christmas crafts for kids are just the two most searched for on our site right now!

You can see more of our holiday ideas on our Pinterest boards :

Enough about MY stuff, let me see yours!

preschool blogI hope your Halloween was fun and you haven’t been dealing with too many sugar crashes! If you didn’t see our post yesterday we shared 7 fun ways to use Halloween candy for educational activities. Check it out and maybe some of the candy can go to great use.

Now that I have shared what we have been doing, tell me what you have! I can’t wait to see your posts about kids crafts and early learning activities.

It’s Sunday which means it’s time to link up and show me and my readers what you have been up to.

I’ve had a huge week and want to share an exciting development with you. Over the past many months I have been writing a book tentatively titled ” 75 Tricks To Raise A Rockstar Reader” with Amy Mascott from Teachmama.com, to be published by Scholastic in 2016.  On Monday the book deal was announced in Publisher’s Weekly. I will keep you all updated about developments with the book and until then you can still find great creative hands on ideas here on the blog, my Facebook, Pinterest, and don’t forget about Instagram !

Have a great week – and don’t be shy if you are super proud of more than one post from this week , add more!  Let’s make Link & Learn a great cheat sheet for readers.

October is one of my very favorite months and it’s almost half over!  I am loving teaching preschool and loving the days when I don’t teach and get to focus, really focus on my 4 year old. This week we cooked together a lot and made every puzzle we could find in our house including two geography puzzles. If you ever wonder what day to day life is like for us check out our Instagram , it’s not super exciting but it is real. What we haven’t done much of are Halloween crafts. I have them on my to do list for this week though.

Until then please share your Halloween crafts, fall activities, and more.
