Welcome to Everything Kids Link and Pin Party

I am so excited to announce that I am now a co-host for the Everything Kids Link and Pin Party! I have been linking up at this party since it started as Made For Kids and I am stoked to now be a co-host.

If you’re joining us for the first time this week, you may like to read all the details about how this hybrid link and pin party works. You can do so HERE.

All About Everything Kids

What’s the Same

If you’ve been visiting our previous party, Made for Kids, you’ll find some things still the same. You can still link up the same types of posts, plus we’ve added parenting to the list. We’ll still be commenting on our favorites, and you still have a chance to be featured.

What’s New

The biggest change is that we’ll all be pinning your posts like crazy! Your hostesses will be pinning this week’s posts. You’ll be re-pinning your favorite 3 pins from last week. We’ll all be commenting on our favorites.

How It Works – From Your Point of View

You’ll link up your posts in inLinkz by clicking the blue button at the bottom of this post. Take a look at the new linkups and comment on your favorite if you have time.

Then, you’ll return to this page and click on the Pinterest link featured here. Choose and re-pin your favorite 3 pins, and if you have time leave at least 1 comment too. 3 Pins are required. Comments are optional but encouraged.

How It Works – From Our Point of View

We have two different Everything Kids Pinterest boards that we’ll alternate. I know, that seems, umm, a little unusual, but bear with me here as I explain.

Every week, we’ll go through the linkup and pin each post that fits our guidelines (listed below). We’ll pin them onto the board for the next week. The Pinterest board featured in today’s post features pins from last week (We used the final week of Made for Kids to start off).

We’ll look to see what has the most re-pins by the end of the week. Next week, we’ll feature the top two, plus two hostess favorites as well.

Canada Day Hand & Footprint Flag

Canada Day Hand & Footprint Flag - As we prepare to celebrate Canada Day try making this fun maple leaf hand and footprint craft with your kids to make the Canada Flag.

Canada Day is coming up!  For the American readers it’s a few days before your Fourth of July, on July 1st!  It’s time to get your red and white on and get ready to celebrate our awesome country.

If you have followed my blog at all your will know my obsession with hand and/or footprint art.  I took a baby play group class with my son when he was around nine months and we had a blast.  Ever since then I make them at home at least once a month, they make great gifts, are super fun to make for both of us, and make awesome keepsakes.  My son LOVES it so much, I always forget how much until he bowls his sister over and climbs onto the table to hold his hand or foot out and get painted.  It always makes them laugh and they adore it.

Canada Day Hand & Footprint Flag - As we prepare to celebrate Canada Day try making this fun maple leaf hand and footprint craft with your kids to make the Canada Flag.

Materials needed:

  • Blank canvas (you can get them at the Dollarstore)
  • Red and white paint (maybe some silver if you have it)
  • A sponge and paint brush
  • A red Sharpie
  • A bucket with soapy water

Instructions:

  • Put some dabs of white paint on your canvas, I chose to add some silver paint to give it a shimmer.
  • Using a damp sponge, sweep the paint across the canvas to paint it fully, don’t forget the sides.
  • Grab your kid (s), strip them (the paint stains) and sit them on a table (harder to move and get everything dirty).
  • Paint a foot red and stamp it on the edge of the canvas.  Repeat with the other side.  Stick those feet in the soapy bucket before they get paint everywhere!
  • Next do their hand, paint it red, try to get them to keep their fingers together.
  • Depending on how the print went down you can use a paint brush to make it look more maple leaf like.  I added a stem to the bottom.
  • Take your red sharpie and write “Happy Canada Day” on the top or bottom (wherever there is the most room).

Monthly Crafting Book Club for June – The Princess and the Pony

The Princess and the Pony - This #monthlycraftingbookclub is The Princess and the Pony by Kate Beaton. Come check out the crafts and activities based on the book.

It’s time for June’s Monthly Crafting Book Club installment.  My daughter got this book as  a present from one of my BFF’s (thanks Jess!) and we love it!  It is funny, has girl power, and is quite unpredictable.  A favourite of mine to give to visitors to read because they have no idea what they are getting into.

This is the book for this month’s crafting book club, each month we get together with a group of bloggers and make a craft or activity related to a book to help encourage literacy.

We decided to make a shield to go along with the battle scene.  My kids love to run around and I knew having shields would make their rough play even more fun for them.

Materials Needed:

  • Paper plates
  • Duct tape
  • Scissors
  • Marker
  • The Princess and the Pony by Kate Beaton

Instructions:

  • Take some duct tape and fold it over half  way so it is covered on two sides.  Using the sticky part that’s on the end attach it to the paper plate then tape down the other end, leaving some room for your loveys to put their hands in.
  • You can colour the front of the paper plate, or even glue down paper shapes.

Enjoy playing with your kids or hopefully watching them play together for awhile and give you some time for a coffee!

Nature Stone Spiral Craft

Nature Stone Spiral Craft - Nature Stone Spiral Craft - Walking a spiral is a great meditating tool and a fabulous way to de-stress, why not make a craft to teach the benefits to children?

I love spirals! A few years ago I went to a women’s retreat (Women’s Red Spiral) and we each brought a stone to contribute to the spiral and then paint red. It was beautiful and a great memory.  Spirals are great for a lot of purposes, but a stone spiral circle is used frequently for meditating. You make them big enough so it is like a path to walk. If you need to de-stress, want to meditate, or just connect with nature this is a great way to do it. Just take a deep breath (ground and centre) and walk the spiral to relax and let your concerns fall away.

I decided it was time to introduce my daughter to meditating and stone spirals, but in an age appropriate way for a three-year old.

Materials Needed:

  • Canvas for painting
  • Coloured paint: green, brown, silver, white, black
  • Sponge and paint brush
  • Glue gun and glue sticks
  • Assorted stones

Instructions:

  • Dampen your sponge a bit and squeeze out the access water.
  • Put some dots of paint on your canvas, green and brown mostly, I like to add some silver to add a bit of shimmer.
  • Use your damp sponge to lightly brush the sponge across the canvas and mix the colours together.
  • While that dries, take the kids outside to collect some little stones.
  • Using a paint brush, I used black paint any colour you want will work though, paint a spiral on the canvas, starting from the centre and working its way out.
  • Heat the glue gun and try to tap off some of the dirt off the stones or they won’t glue as well.
  • Using the glue gun attach the stones one at a time to your spiral.

Nature Stone Spiral Craft - 1Nature Stone Spiral Craft - 2

 

To play with your spiral you can teach your child a few different ways, these were my favourites:

 

I taught her to use her finger and try to deep breath as she traced the spiral to the centre with her finger, then back out again still tracing with her finger.

 

I went through her toys and found little Strawberry Shortcake figurines and brought those out for the kids. Using the figurines they “walked” the spiral with the figurines and traversed the stone spiral in and out with them.

 

It may not exactly be meditating but it’s a start to get them to calm down and relax, maybe learning some breaths as they go.  I love the look of concentration on their face as they focus on the spiral, I may even use this if she is freaking out and needs some help calming down.

All About Everything Kids

What’s the Same

If you’ve been visiting our previous party, Made for Kids, you’ll find some things still the same. You can still link up the same types of posts, plus we’ve added parenting to the list. We’ll still be commenting on our favorites, and you still have a chance to be featured.

What’s New

The biggest change is that we’ll all be pinning your posts like crazy! Your hostesses will be pinning this week’s posts. You’ll be re-pinning your favorite 3 pins from last week. We’ll all be commenting on our favorites.

How It Works – From Your Point of View

You’ll link up your posts in inLinkz by clicking the blue button at the bottom of this post. Take a look at the new linkups and comment on your favorite if you have time.

Then, you’ll return to this page and click on the Pinterest link featured here. Choose and re-pin your favorite 3 pins, and if you have time leave at least 1 comment too. 3 Pins are required. Comments are optional but encouraged.

How It Works – From Our Point of View

We have two different Everything Kids Pinterest boards that we’ll alternate. I know, that seems, umm, a little unusual, but bear with me here as I explain.

Every week, we’ll go through the linkup and pin each post that fits our guidelines (listed below). We’ll pin them onto the board for the next week. The Pinterest board featured in today’s post features pins from last week (We used the final week of Made for Kids to start off).

We’ll look to see what has the most re-pins by the end of the week. Next week, we’ll feature the top two, plus two hostess favorites as well.

We feel that adding the element of Pinterest to our link party helps everyone by adding extra promotion! Please take a few minutes to repin three of your favs!

We have some simple rules…

1. Link up to 3 of your own posts (that you haven’t previously linked up).
2. Re-pin 3 pins from the Everything Kids Pinterest board featured in this post (required).
3. Please follow your hostesses on social media.
4. By entering your link, you are giving us permission to feature an image on our blogs and social media. Proper credit will always be given.

Re-Pin Your Favorites

To kick off Everything Kids, we’ve pinned a bunch of our favorites from last week’s Made for Kids linkup. That way we get to “begin as we mean to continue” and it’s easier for you to understand what you’ll be doing every week.
Re-pin your favorites on the Everything Kids board on Pinterest.

Questions?

If you have any questions about this new format, or any comments at all about this all new link and pin party, please let us know, either in a comment below or via our social media.

 

We can’t wait to see and share all your posts!
