Activities for Kids

Welcome back to another week of Mom's Library. Each Tuesday I join up with other bloggers to host a link up for resources for moms. This is a great place to find activities for kids, crafts for kids, devotionals, recipes, and more. Each week we have an opportunity for you to link up your ideas and have a chance to be featured the next week. We also have a giveaway each week. Be sure to subscribe and follow Mom's library on pinterest to keep up with all of our updates and features.

Featured on Mom's Library: Five Favorites

I often try to feature a particular theme from Mom's Library. Last week I featured easy preschool crafts. This week, I'm sharing five totally random posts with no theme! However, these are five posts I LOVED last week and I don't want you to miss. There were 153 posts linked to Mom's library last week which provides you with tons of great resources. Make sure these amazing five didn't get lost in the list, though! Check it out...

Balloons Over Broadway Review and Free Parade Printable from Enchanted Homeschooling Mom
I adore this non-fiction book about the Macy's Thanksgiving day parade. I think my kindergartener will be ready for this book this year and I can't wait to try out Jill's free parade printable pack to go along with the book. 

 I love these ideas for practicing math after school. The ideas involve art, play, puzzles, games, books, and more. My five year old loves math! These activities are great for math lovers (him) and math haters (me). 

I've been loving all of the free printables 3 Dinosaurs creates to go with the Bob Books Phonics Readers. My son is diving into consonant blends right now, so these will be perfect for his level!
Did I mention they are FREE?

Spiders Preschool Theme from Learning is Messy
My boys love spiders right now, so I have been collecting as many activities as possible for them. I love all of the reading, math, and play, and learning activities in this post. I especially love the science experiement about spider webs. I totally learned something new about how spiders keep from sticking to their webs!

Free Printable 2014 Blog Planner from My Joy Filled Life
I was so excited to see this free printable pack for getting my blog organized. If you are a blogger like me, let's all go ahead and make our new years resolution right now, print this out, and get ready to use it!

  3. Thanks for the great link up and the giveaway. My favorite Christmas book currently is Pocket's Christmas Wish. My friend wrote it and it is a really great story and has great pictures. My childhood favorite was Petunias Christmas and something else that is in my Christmas stash. I am going to dig out the thanksgiving and christmas books out of the closet soon (loosing your memory is a horrible thing)!!
