For the Kids Friday #82

Welcome to the party!!!
Sorry to keep things short and sweet this week and next.  I'm off on a vacation to Thailand with my family!  I'll be too busy laying on the beach... BUT I will be back to share some of the amazing features from the parties I missed when I return!

For the Kids Friday



1)  I would LOVE for you to first be a follower of my blog.  (And why wouldn't you want to be?!)

2)  Grab my For the Kids Fridays Button and place it somewhere on your blog.  Be sure to link back to me!

3)  Link up as many KID-RELATED activities, games, recipes, parties, gifts, clothing you've created, crafts, traditions, lessons, and so on... that you would like to share.  Please add a different link each week.  They can be old or new... this is just a place to share ideas for our kids to enjoy.  Bonus points to those that serve some educational purpose too!  Link must be to the specific post, and not your general blog page.  Please don't link to your store.

4)  Share the love and comment on at least one other link.  Everyone loves to get feedback.


That's it!  Have fun, and thanks so much for participating!

It is a super busy week for me.  Three parties to prepare for, and my in-laws fly in this weekend!  Are you having a crazy week???
