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!
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!
Jill @ A Mom With A Lesson Plan says
Congratulations!!!! I am so glad you are still going strong. My favorite post was the Spider Web Walking post… the song is sooooo cool! https://www.notimeforflashcards.com/2011/10/spider-web-gross-motor-activity.html
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.
andie jaye says
happy birthday! my fave “regular” post is the bandaid firefly one!!
Happy Birthday! Our current favorite is the simple sheet of sticky contact paper with popsicle sticks. Congrats on such a great blog!
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!
I like the multicultural paper dolls post. I like the values and ideas that you try to teach through your activities. Thanks!
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!
An Ordinary Mom says
Congrats on such a big milestone!
So many posts to love! I adore all your book recommendations. Loved your Block Basketball post!
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!
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!!!
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!

I think your gallery wall post is my favorite…
Joyce Moy says
I love all your letter of the week posts!
Stacie Fontinell says
You have had so many great ideas of things that I can do with my kids! I liked the shaving cream fun!
shawna kemp says
Our favorite is the a A for alligator craft 🙂
My fav post was the pizza delivery game that taught reading skills that was such a great idea. My kids loved it!
Jen Ketcher says
I loved your Halloween Spider Web game. Very fun indoor activity for cold days!
my favorite NTFF craft was the paper plate jellyfish that our kids did this summer in the Extended School Year program. I use this site all the time!
Hard to pick, one I favorited in reader is “How to Make a Simple & Frugal Sensory Tub.” Happy 4 years!
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).
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.
Love the heart flower bouquet. My son made those for his grandma a few years back & she still has them in a vase.
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!
It’s impossible to pick just one! I really enjoy the letter of the week activities, and the name stamps.
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.
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.
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!!!
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.
Heather Bell says
Any of the handprint crafts!!
Winnie Bernardy says
Well, that’s easy…all of them!
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! 🙂
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.:)
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!!

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.
Whitney at It's Gravy, Baby! says
It’s hard to choose a favorite, but one that I want to try out soon is the car alphabet.
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. 🙂
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!
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…
I read your wonderful blog for almost 4 years now, and it’s so difficult to pick a favorite. So I cheat and choose a recent favorite – A Love Bomb craft – https://www.notimeforflashcards.com/2012/02/love-bomb-craft.html.
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!
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.
No offense to you, but I love the posts that have been shared by Katy (thematic units with focus on special needs).
zero offense taken – I love Katy and all her posts too!
I am currently loving all of your alphabet letter ideas! we’re right in that stage… thanks for all your ideas!
my favourite is ‘homemade glue’ after all where would we be without it, xSx
My favorite post is the ice cream cone christmas trees. I do it with my daughter every year now.

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. =)
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.
Marnie @ Carrots are Orange 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…
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.
