Tuesday Tots Link Party

Thank you so much for everyone linking up last week and the sewing posts have inspired me I have created a pinterest board for sewing for kids and would love to share your posts in the board as well – if you have any more sewing posts then please leave a link in the comments below and I will pin to the board.

If you have been featured and would like to grab the featured at Tuesday Tots badge from the sidebar then please do.

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 One Perfect Day 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.
If you are featured please grab the “Featured at” badge from the side bar.
Also, just a reminder.  Linking up gives Growing A Jeweled Rose, One Perfect Day 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.

Whilst you come and link up – please come over to Blogging with kids and see what is happening in the Community over there. Come share ideas, find advice and support and collaborate with amazing bloggers from around the world.

  1. I was so excited that you featured these sewing posts this week! My BOYS and I love sewing activities. Such great fine motor practice and a very calming, creative activity.

  2. What Great ideas for introducing sewing. I have to admit I’m not very good at it so it has never occurred to me before to introduce the boys to it.

    Thank you for hosting.
