Weekend Reads 11-13-10

Here’s a smattering of great posts that got me thinking this week:

Kat at Inspired to Action inspired me with How to Be  a Rockstar with 30 minutes and a Pink Tablecloth.  A great reminder that simple things can make a big difference for our kids!  And Kat must be on to something, because I tagged her guest post, Giving Your Children the Best Day at Steady Mom before realizing it was the same author!

As a mom to 3 boys this post got my attention: Boys and Reading: Tips to Make Reading Boy Friendly

If you’re looking for great activities, check out:

 Paper Roll Puppets at No Time for Flashcards.  Simple and so fun!

Erin at Laugh Paint Create had a brilliant idea for using foam shapes and glue sticks to make stampers!  Check out her Falling Leaves  art activity.

I love this active spin on the Gratitude Jar from Valerie at Frugal Family Fun.

A quick and easy open-ended sorting activity from the Activity Mom.

What got you thinking this week?
