Where your child centered ideas are the stars of the show!

Here is the code:

Today I’m really excited because I’m joining the Sunday Showcase team. This is a linky I have taken part in lots of times, although I was always late as I was confused that it’s the Sunday showcase so I always tried to join in on a Sunday and really it goes live on a Saturday. It was set up by Bern at Mum to Two Posh lil Divas and when her co-host Classified: Mom decided to retire from blogging she invited other bloggers to join her in running and promoting.

I’ve wanted to host a children’s activity linky for a while as I love to see all the amazing ideas but there already seemed to be lots around, so I jumped at the chance to join in with such a popular link up. I also love the ethos behind Sunday Showcase. There are lots of amazing ideas and the hosts take the time to comment on every one and to feature some posts that really capture their imagination. I also love the blog at Mum to Two Posh Lil Divas. As a fellow teacher Bern is always trying to look for fun and creative ways to get her children learning. You can tell by the smile on their faces that they love the activities.

The Sunday Showcase is now being hosted on SIX blogs!

The Showcase Features

Taken from last week’s posts

I visited lots of links from last week but was a little nervous of leaving a comment before it became official that I was on the team. My picks for this week were simply things which I want to do with the children.

coffee play dough

I am very inspired by all the amazing play dough posts that have been around this past month and want to try more. My girls adore tea parties and the combination of coffee and play dough in this post from my  co-host The Iowa Farmer’s Wife looks right up their street.

Rainbow salt tray

I love this idea for a Rainbow Salt tray from Learning 4 Kids. It’s so simple yet looks so beautiful and I’m sure any child would love to play with it. Perfect for practicing letters or numbers or just having a lovely artistic time.

pom poms

This post from Creative Playhouse is definitely on my must do list for the twins. They love pom poms and what a cute and colourful way to practice some fine motor skills. Perfect for keeping toddlers happy and occupied during some down time.

Finally we’ve been really busy here this week as it’s been my eldest fifth birthday. She had a family tea party on her birthday and is having a magic themed party at the weekend for her school friends. We have been busy making cakes but I haven’t had time to post about any of them. In the meantime I put together a post filled with all my favourite fairy ideas both from my blog and some of my favourite ones. There are craft, literacy, gardening, cooking, and reviews, as well as lots of funny parenting anecdotes mainly about that pesky tooth fairy. It was great fun to put together and I think there is something for everyone – well if they like fairies!
