How has your week been going? In our parts, the county fair is in full swing, and the highlight of our kids day was getting to hold an alligator. They all were a wee bit giddy about that one. Mind you – it was fairly small, but still – it was an alligator, so that counts for something right?

{And don’t think that I didn’t edit our summer fun list to add ‘Hold an alligator’ just so we could check it off – cough}. Because I did.

Here’s a peek at some of the fun things that you all shared last week during the link up. Be sure to stop by and visit others this week too and encourage each other!

sweetened condensed milk paint

Have some sweetened condensed milk in your pantry? Pull it out and use it for painting! Check out this idea from Teaching 2 and 3 Year Olds and start stamping!

Have fun making a musical instrument with your kids. All you need is an empty tissue box and a few other supplies you most likely have around your house. Check out the idea from Accidental Teacher, On Purpose.

tinfoil knight

Sometime this year, you may want to plan on doing a Knights and Princesses unit. The Fantastic Five shares the crafts and activities that she worked on with their three kiddos. I love the knight in shining armor!


And if you are ready for a little bit of messy fun, be sure to stop by One Beautiful Home and grab her Cloud Dough recipe. It will definitely be a hit with your little ones!
