From Your Hostess

This week has been a bit crazy. We have Hazel's birthday party on Sunday so I have been preparing for it (and the 11 kids) and Hazel has been home sick for two days but is starting to feel better. We shared Origami Zoo, Exploring Tonga, Shi-shi-etko and forced Indian Boarding Schools, I Am Martin Luther King, Jr. for MLK Day for Kids, and Winter's Child.

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.
