It was lovely reading all the crafts and activities that people did with the books last week. Thank you for linking up and please feel free to grab the Featured at Tuesday Tots badge from the sidebar to put on your blog.

We have exciting news this week – we are being joined by In Lieu of Preschool as one of our 2 new cohosts the other one I will reveal next week.

Now for this week linky as normal is for any post about under 5’s – whether it’s a craft, activity, play idea, recipe, proud moment or advice you’re welcome to link up. Growing a Jeweled Rose and In Lieu of Preschool are co-hosting and we would love for you to link up 1 or many posts this week.

Here are a few guidelines

Please don’t link giveaways unless they have a specific under 5’s focus which the giveaway is not the main focus of the post.
Once you have linked up,  we ask that you visit a couple of the other posts that have linked up and leave a comment –  we all love reading comments.
I also ask that you grab the Tuesday Tots badge from the side bar, and either add it to your blog or include it in your post through a text link back to Rainy Day Mum.
Also, just a reminder.  Linking up gives Growing A Jeweled Rose, In Lieu of Preschool and Rainy Day Mum permission to feature and share your post  via several social medias, including Pinterest.  If being featured, we may also grab a photo from your blog for use in the post but of course will link back to your site. From this week I will also be including posts linked up in my Prompts to Play Newsletter each week to help others find your great ideas.
