Kids Crafts & Activities { Link Up! }

link & Learn 2012This week was a whirlwind and before you link up your amazing, creative and helpful blog posts I want to share a bit of news.

Many years ago I said to myself that one day I’d work with Scholastic. You may already know that this blog is syndicated on Scholastic.com but as of this week I am also anchoring the Raise A Reader blog on Scholastic Parents. I am incredibly excited to have a chance to share my passion for literacy with other parents . I am even more excited I get to do it with a dear friend and all around fantastic educator Amy Mascott from teachmama.com.

Check out Raise A Reader here.

Now enough about me! Link up and share.



Link up! { Kids Crafts & Early Learning}

link & Learn 2012I am so excited our Best of Link & Learn Pinterest Board already has over 20, 000 followers! I am thrilled to share the posts that grab my attention every week with Pinterest . I was asked if I would be linking via my blog. NO. The pins are directly from your site . I pin the posts when I pop over to read them myself. I don’t always have time to comment but pinning is something I can do and that will hopefully get the most eyes seeing your fantastic posts.

If you are new here I’ll catch you up. This linky is simple. Link up posts about crafts, activities, homeschool lessons… really anything that will help kids learn and have fun. Also feel free to link up posts about parenting, teaching or anything that will help adults who work with or care for kids all day.

Don’t forget to check out out Best Of Link & Learn board on Pinterest.



Link&Learn – Weekly Kids Craft Linky

link & Learn 2012

It’s time to add your post and don’t forget to check out some others featured in the linky. I am consistently awed by the caliber of posts that are linked up and hope that you think that are as amazing as I do. I have started a new Pinterest board just to showcase and share the links I think are rad. I am slowly but surely going back to old  Link & Learn posts to fill it up. Don’t miss it because it really is the Best Of Link & Learn.

New to Link & Learn ? Welcome ! I can’t wait to see your links so don’t be shy. We love kids crafts, early learning activities and anything kids related that will make their life or the lives of those caring for them easier or more interesting and fun.

Have a great week!

Also this week I will be compiling my favorite links from this linky into a collage and promote it on MemeTales.com , embed it in next week’s Link & Learn post and promote it on our Pinterest boards. What is super exciting about this collage is that each photo within it will be linked directly to the original source ( click and see for yourself! ) You can see it in action below and on the MemeTales website.
