After School Linky Party (8/26)

Welcome to the After School Linky!

I hope you find inspiration here. I know I do
every. single. week.

Here are just a few of the wildly creative and enjoyable educational activities shared last week.

(This round-up of 10 simple science experiments explores everything from chromatography to chemical reactions. There's not one single activity listed that I don't want to do with my son!)

Learning about Ocean Animals at Gift of Curiosity.
(Katie's list of ocean animal activities are so diverse, no kid will be bored. Gross motor, observation, matching ... there are so many skills practiced here!)

(Sure it's fun to read about flamingos, but it's even more fun to try and "eat" like one with a pair of spoons. This is hands-on learning at its finest!)

Silly Animal Charades at Moms & Munchkins.
(Thanks for sharing this fun take on charades, Cheryl! This looks like the perfect activity for family game night.)

(Jacquie has prepared an amazing list of resource for free online children's books and parents of voracious readers everywhere couldn't be more psyched. We all owe you!!)

Packing school lunches this year?
These three bloggers have some great notes, jokes, and tips for personal messages.
