I’m super excited to announce that I’ve just joined a fabulous group of bloggers in co-hosting a weekly link party called the After School Linky. It’s for bloggers to share posts about extra learning we can do with our kids after school — or during the day if we’re homeschooling.
I had fun visiting those who linked up last week, and I’m sharing a few of my favorites:
Tips for Encouraging Creativity in Kids, from Kids Activities Blog
Holly shares a unique idea — build boredom into the family schedule. Without boredom, kids don’t learn to be creative! Be sure to visit this post for some ideas on how to promote creativity in your kids.
10 Easy Science Activities for Kids, from Buggy & Buddy
You’ll love Chelsey’s round-up of simple but appealing science activities for kids. Perfect for some after-school learning or to fit into your homeschooling day!
Treasuring the Precious Moments with Your Children, from Rediscovered Families
I love Sharon’s post about slowing down and appreciating our kids — a timely one as our schedules fill up for the new school year! Sharon gives us five simple tips on how to slow down and be present with our children.
Teach Kids about History, from The Measured Mom
Here’s what we’ve been up to — reading these great history books for kids! My kids have loved listening to this series from preschool on. The great thing about these books is they appeal to kids of all ages — when I taught grades 3-5, the kids loved to choose these for silent reading. Be sure to check them out!
And now, the linky!
We’d love for you to share your School-Age Post (ages 5 and up) about your learning week after school. Tell us about your Crafts, Activities, Playtime, and Adventures that you are doing to enrich your children’s lives after school, homeschool, or on the weekend!
When linking up, please take a moment to comment on at least one post linked up before yours and grab our After School button to include a link on your post or site! By linking up you’re giving us permission to share on our After School Pinterest Board or feature on our After School Party next week! Don’t forget to follow along and join our After School Enrichment Community.
Link up your After School Crafts, Activities, Playtime, and Adventures! We’d love to see them!
