Today I’d like to share with you five FUN and fabulous blogs I visit every day — it’s fun to spread the link love!!

1. Allie at No Time for Flash Cards — One of the first blogs I started following, Allie’s blog at No Time for Flashcards is a terrific resource filled with learning activities, crafts for kids, books, songs, and pretend play ideas. I especially loved her Foyer Airplane post! Great fun!!

2. Stephanie at Modern Parents Messy Kids — A relatively recent find for me, I’ve been enjoying browsing through Stephanie’s blog at Modern Parents Messy Kids for lots of inspiring ideas, all with a clean, modern feel!

3. Amanda at Not Just Cute — A terrific parenting resource, I especially love Amanda’s series of posts on learning through play. As the name of her blog suggests, each craft or activity has specific developmental objectives besides just being “cute”!

4. Amy at Teach Mama — Amy’s blog at Teach Mama is a terrific example of how we can turn everyday happenings into rich learning experiences! Be sure to check out her Backyard Rainbow Hunt!

5. Joel at Made by Joel — I love how Joel takes ordinary everyday materials and turns them into fun and engaging toys for his kiddos. His paper city is sure to bring hours of good imaginative fun, and it’s free to download and print!
