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.
This will be the last #KidsandKreativity of 2019 as I am hoping to take an extended break over the Christmas period to spend more time with freinds and family. As a result I will leave it open for 3 weeks, and the next linky will be 3rd January 2020!
Christmas preparations are well underway at this house. Our Elf on the Shelf ‘Buddy’ has arrived, he bought with him a North Pole Breakfast (a new one for us) and has lots of lovey surprises for the kids leading up to Christmas.
Have you got lots of lovely festive things planned for December? I’d love to hear what you’re up to in the run up to Christmas.
The Last #KidsandKreativity Linky
There were a total of 8 posts linked up which was great considering the time of year, makes me very happy!
As a reminder the minimum amount of commenting is still one of the host posts and two other posts of your choosing per post you link up. That’s 3 comments minimum per post. So if you link up two blog posts you need to make a minimum of 6 comments, which may mean popping back towards the end of the linky when more posts have been added.
As a side note, if you have already read a post through another linky, still pop back and comment with the #KidsandKreativity hashtag- it still counts!
I had two top commenters this time, both of whom linked up two posts each. So I am going to share my favourite post from each of them.
First is Little Hearts Big Love, who shared their post on Creating a Special Angel in memory of their daughter Jessica. A really simple lovely kids craft to make an angel for the top of your Christmas tree, but also such a lovely beautiful way to remember their daughter.
Second is from BooBerrit, my fav post was about her DIY Christmas decorations. Those that know me know I love a homemade Christmas dec, and bonus points for them being kid friendly! Check the post out if you need some ideas.
This Week’s #KidsandKreativity Linky
So with Christmas fast approaching, I thought I would share my Family Christmas Traditions which looks at more unique and unusual ways to celebrate Christmas, and a post from last year that is proving popular on How to Make a Christmas Eve Box.
I would still really love to see some more of you over in the Facebook group, new faces and my regulars a like. I will do my best be concentrating a bit more on the group and try and build it up so we can create a real support community of like minded bloggers.
I have also created a Kids and Kreativity twitter list for anyone that has joined in with the linky this year. It just makes it easier to see each others content to RT and share. If your not on the list and want to be then just let me know!
I will also continue to pin all the posts from the linky to my #KidsandKreativity board on Pinterest, and I often pin from that board to my other boards. Pinterest is my biggest platform, and with currently 3.7 million monthly unique viewers, make sure your posts have lovely eye catching vertical pins in them to get maximum exposure.
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, and stay open for 10 days. (As this is the last linky of the year it will stay open for 3 weeks)
Please, please, please make sure you finish your commenting by 7pm on the second Thursday (As a one off this linky commenting needs to be complete by January 2nd) and make sure you add the #KidsandKreativity to your comments. 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.
So come and be part of the #KidsandKreativity community and link up your creative and inspiring posts. Come and check out the Pinterest board and join the Facebook group and get involved. Make sure you grab the badge below, have a quick look at the rules, and get linking!
