Sunday Sharing – Leave your early childhood education link!

rp_kids-crafts-preschool-blog-455x34711-455x34711111.pngGood Morning! It’s Sunday and I am in the last few weeks of marathon training – there is nothing I’d love more than coming home from my long run today and checking out the great early childhood education posts you leave here on Link & Learn! I am passionate about early childhood education and my long runs are usually when I brainstorm new ideas for my preschool classroom and to share with you here. Where do you get your ideas?

If you need more ideas sign up for our daily emails or check out our Pinterest boards here and Facebook page.



Link & Learn – Crafts and Activities For Kids

Hello from Disneyland !

My family and I have been here all week and are heading home today. I know that if you follow my Instagram I have flooded you with pictures but those are just a FEW of the shots I took of my little ones enjoying the (mostly) happiest place on earth.  We are exhausted, but happily exhausted and I think I will be going to bed when the kids do for the rest of the week.  Don’t be surprised if there aren’t a long list of new posts until next week because I have  HUGE pile of laundry, and a to do list just as long waiting for me at home.

That doesn’t mean you won’t have great new ideas available. Our Pinterest is packed with good ideas especially our Early Literacy and Spring Activities For Kids and my favorite My Classroom boards.

Have a rad week and catch me up on everything you’ve been doing while I have been riding those teacups and meeting those Princesses!



Activities for Toddlers & Kids { Link Up! }

rp_link-learn-2014-455x178111111.jpgIt’s the weekend and I am nursing a very sore Achilles tendon which means that instead of going for my planned 10 mile run ( aka me time)  I am in my PJs blogging. So Link & Learn is up early, anything to get out of cleaning the playroom instead.

If you are new to Link & Learn ignore my whining because that is not what Link & Learn is all about.  Link & Learn is all about sharing the wonderfully creative, totally engaging, and plain old rad ideas you have shared on your blog with No Time For Flash Card readers. Link up your learning activities, your crafts, pretend play, outside fun… really anything that might help a parent or caregiver share quality time with their children.

This is far from an exclusive club and as always it’s my favorite place to find great things to pin. I just passed 475,000 pinterest followers and I am hoping to make it to half a million soon. Are you following me? More importantly am I following you?

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.
