Littles Learning Link Up: Fun With Dr. Seuss Round Up

Welcome to Littles Learning Link Up. Each month you will find:
  • A seasonal round-up (usually toward the beginning of the month)
  • A guest post featuring crafts, activities, tips, snack ideas or other early childhood topics. (usually 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 another February Round Up

Yes, another Round Up in February. I know I already shared a Round Up this month. However, with Dr. Seuss's birthday right around the corner, I decided a Dr. Seuss Round Up would be appropriate. This Round Up is going to be like my Round Up posts from last year. This is a collection of Dr. Seuss crafts and activities that go with specific Dr. Seuss books.

Throwback Thursday Blog-Style #140: February 23, 2017

Welcome back to... 

I know, I know, Throwback Thursday seems to be all about sharing pictures from the past, great memories that mean something to you, that you would like to share with others. At least that is how it appears to me. Throwback Thursday wasn't something I was participating in, and then I came up with an idea.

I thought it would be great fun and a help to my blog to share old content, but not just any old content. Each week I will share an old blog post from a previous year, any year, BUT it has to be from the current week (for example, something I've posted around February 23rd, from any previous year)  I will go in, edit the post if needed, add a pinnable image if I don't already have one, and share it on Facebook.

Last year I focused solely on review posts for the posts I wanted to share. It was fun remembering some of the review products I had forgotten about. This year I will be focusing on recipes I have shared in the past.

Would you like to join in? You do not need to edit your past post in any way, you don't need to create a pinnable image, though it couldn't hurt, in fact it will help your blog traffic to add quality pinnable images to your posts.

Just go into your archives, choose a favorite post from this current week from any previous year, and link it up below. (If you don't have anything from this current week, it is still okay to link up with a post from a previous year around this time. And if you haven't been blogging for a full year, feel free to share any earlier post.)

Please make sure to share from the past as instructed above if you would like your post to qualify for the Featured Post. Most weeks I find that there is a wonderful post, but I can't feature it because it is a current post, not from the past. I love reading the current posts, if you want to share them. However, I am not able to feature them, because the spirit of Throwback Thursday Blog-Style is to share posts from the past.
Thank you

I will be pinning posts to my appropriate Pinterest boards and will be randomly selecting a Featured Throwback Thursday post to share next week. Just a note, I will be sharing a picture from your post if you are selected as the featured post, but I will link back to your post. I will ALWAYS give credit and link back. By linking up you are giving me permission to use your picture in the post. 

Here is my Throwback Thursday post:

Shawn from Crafty Chic's Blog shared Put a Little HOP in Your Step.

Wordless Wednesday: February 22, 2017 (w/linky) : Happy Birthday Harold, 5 Years Old!!

I can't believe my little guy is 5 years old already!

Wow has he grown:

Traditional Birthday Breakfast

Traditional picture at the top of the steps

Yes, this is his normal way to zing down the steps.

Traditional banner.

Big helper, helping to make the cake.

Then we headed out to Chuck E. Cheese, for the traditional 5th birthday celebration. On the way we saw this light in the break of the clouds that looked an awful lot like a rainbow. My picture was a little late and not the best color.

When we got to Chuck E. Cheese, we were greeted by this beautiful sky.

Time for fun and dinner.

Let's see how many tickets we won.

One quick slide before we leave.

A couple of girls are a bit big now.

Presents and cake time.

Looking forward to seeing your Wordless (or not so wordless) Wednesday posts this week.

Tots and Me
