Kids Activities – add your links!

rp_link-learn-2014-455x17811.jpgI hope all of you who were celebrating this week either Canada Day or 4th of July had safe and happy celebrations. I had a wonderful holiday and am trying my best to plan out a great summer filled with kids activities , family fun, and summer reading. Most of what we do all summer is play, lay out in the yard with books, and splash at the local pool! On rainy days and early mornings, or those days when the TV is on too much I plan an activity. My go to place for ideas beyond my own is Pinterest – specifically my Summer Fun For Kids board.

Wonder where I find all the ideas to add to it? You are looking at it. Link & Learn is my secret pipeline for awesome ideas. So please don’t be shy add your links and share in the fun.

Are your kids back to school? Mine don’t go back until September and I am so glad we have more time to play and explore the great ideas you all share here week after week.  If your kids did go back or off to school for the first time I’d love for you to leave a link or comment about what their favorite activity or special event was this summer. I love gathering these huge lists of stuff for kids to do.

If you are new here please don’t be shy- add in a link from your blog that is about something kids or their caregivers can do or learn.

Have a great week and don’t forget that even on days we don’t post we are always sharing something on Facebook and Pinterest.
