Littles Learning Link Up: The Tons-of-Fun Valentine's Day Round Up

Welcome to Littles Learning Link Up. Each month you will find:
  • A seasonal round-up (toward the beginning of the month)
  • A guest post featuring crafts, activities, tips, snack ideas or other early childhood topics. (toward the end of the month)
  • Posts where I share what I have been up to with my preschoolers and/or early elementary children (including occasional highlight posts where I share how we used ideas that have been linked up here on Littles Learning Link Up).
Each week, I will host a link up, where you can share either what you have been up to recently, or old posts that may go with the theme.  Feel free to link up more than one post.

Each week I will continue to feature a couple of posts from those that have been linked up. 

I hope you will continue to share your wonderful posts, and I hope you will find something new to try with your child.

It would be great for everyone to stop by and visit the other linked-up posts as well. Check them out, leave some comments, pin those that interest you. Let's make this a real party and socialize with each other.

It's time for this month's Round Up

Once again I can not believe how fast time flies. It feels like 2016 just started, and yet here we are, it is the second day of February (not that it feels like it) and Valentine's Day is just around the corner. If you are looking for activities, crafts, valentines for the children to make, or snack ideas, you have come to the right place. There are so many wonderful ideas out there and I am sharing some of them here with you. There really are so many creative mama's out there. I hope you will find something (preferably more than one something) that you would like to do with your child(ren)
