Sharing Saturday 16-1

Wishing you and your family a happy and healthy 2016!!

We have had a fun two week party with many great ideas shared!! Last week I featured a few of the Christmas themed posts and the party continued.  This week will be more general posts from both weeks. Our features are just a sampling of the wonderful things shared, so if you haven't checked out the rest you should!! The features for this week include Christmas Math & Science, Christmas Crafts, Holiday Lessons, and a few favorites. I have also started a new craft link party (the crafts just have to be family appropriate and not necessarily kid related) and it is a place to share crafts, reviews of patterns, craft books, etc. and patterns. I hope you will come check it out tomorrow.  Sunday will be the beginning of this month's Creative Kids Culture Blog Hop for all your posts that are culture (multicultural) related!

From Your Hostess
These two weeks we shared had two Crafty Weekends Parties with reviews of How to Sew Little Felt Animals and  Hands-On Bible Craft Book, co-hosted Creative Kids Culture Blog Hop, shared All About the Philippines, Little Loving Hands, some beautiful Christmas books, some books about the Inuit, some Christmas crafts, a free printable thank you note for Christmas gifts and DIY decorations for a ducky-themed party including our recently added ducky cake!

Now for This Week's Party 

A Few Simple Guidelines: 

1)  Link any kid-friendly, child-centered post. Please no etsy shops or giveaways, etc.  Remember to link to your actual post and not to your blog home page. If you have a general adult-made craft you should share at Crafty Weekends!!

2) Post the Sharing Saturday button on your sidebar or somewhere on your blog to help spread the word.
