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.

Thanks for sharing your great ideas on your blog!
Here is another article about getting boys to read (I have 3 boys as well!) I thought it was wonderful.
And speaking of boys, this was another great article on raising them: http://articles.cnn.com/2010-11-03/living/o.raise.good.husband_1_real-boys-boy-code-william-pollack?_s=PM:LIVING
