Welcome back to the Kids and Kreativity linky party! This is a linky for all your blog posts that encourage creativity or inspire imagination in children. They can be about anything from baking with kids, messy play ideas, childrens’ crafts, book reviews, days out, travel…. you name it! Anything that gets the creative juices flowing, or sparks kids’ wonderful imaginations can be linked up.
I don’t know about you, but as soon as Halloween and Fireworks night is over, my attention turns to Christmas. It’s one of my favourite times of the year, although I actually think I prefer the run up to Christmas more than the day itself. We have started our Christmas crafts, and I am starting to plan for the return of our elf on the shelf, imaginatively named Buddy.

December is not far away, and if you are like me scouring the internet for some new Elf on the Shelf ideas, then check out this post I wrote last year up on the blog now. 20 Fantastic Elf on the Shelf Ideas #blissfuldomestication #elfontheshelf #elfontheshelfideas #elfnaughtiness #Christmasiscoming
The Last #KidsandKreativity Linky
We had a total of 10 posts linked up, which is fabulous, and most people did over and above the minimum commenting which is great. Just don’t forget if you link up towards the beginning of the linky, pop back the second week otherwise you miss all the fantastic posts that link up towards the end!
As a reminder, the minimum commenting is now one of the host posts and two other posts of your choosing, 3 comments minimum per post linked up. Please don’t link up and run, I am keeping count. Don’t forget though you can comment on more if you wish, and extra commenting is positively encouraged!
The top commentor again was Malin from Sensational Learning with Penguin who shared their post Baking Saffron Buns. These buns look amazing, literally my mouth was watering just reading the recipe. This isn’t the first time she has been featured as the top commentor, and she is always so generous with her comments, please pop over to her post and give it some love.
The second post I am sharing is my favourite of the link up and is from Rainbows Are Too Beautiful. Their Snowy Owl Pine Cone Craft not only resulted in a super cute snowy owl family, but it is also great learning activity to help develop fine motor skills and encourage imagination. So go and check out the post and give it some more love.
This Week’s #KidsandKreativity Linky
This week I am sharing a post about Designing a Kid’s Bedroom to Inspire Their Imagination, and the first of our Christmas crafts this year How to Make Simple Santa Baubles.
I will be giving one of these mugs away at the end of this month, and one in the middle of December, so if you want to be in with a chance of getting one head over to the Facebook group.
I am of course still pinning all the posts from the linky to my #KidsandKreativity board on Pinterest, and will continue to do so. So go check it out for some great inspiration and ideas!
For all those linking up for the first time, have a read through the linky information and rules, but if you have any questions just message me.
The linky will open every other Friday at 10.00 am. It will be open for new link ups for 10 days. On my bi-weekly linky posts, I will feature my favourite post and the post of the blogger that commented the most from the link up before, and share them on my social media channels.
Please, please, please make sure you finish your commenting by 7pm on the second Thursday. Please also make sure you add the #KidsandKreativity to your comment, as this helps me keep track of the comments, and make sure everyone is doing the minimum amount of commenting. Please DO NOT link up and run, it’s not fair on others, and is not what this linky is about.
This linky party is all about creating a nice community of like minded bloggers, and increasing exposure to blog posts that might inspire people. So feel free to comment away and share posts that you love. The more that you put into the linky, the more that you will get out.
