The Showcase is a place to link up child centered blog posts. It’s full of fun ideas and lots of inspiration for activities to do with your children, I just wish I could do all of them! It was started by Bern at Mum to Two Posh lil Divas and Classified: Mom

 The Sunday Showcase is now being hosted on FIVE blogs!

So without further ado here are my features for the Sunday Showcase. Yay!

The Showcase Features

As it’s the start of a new year and we’ve been on a break I’ve chosen some posts which are my favourite from my lovely fellow Sunday Showcase co-hosts. It was pretty hard to choose but these are the ones which stuck out to me. They are all fun ideas to learn literacy skills!
