Weekends are catch-up time for me: I catch up on my writing, I catch up on my laundry, I catch up with my husband, and if I have any time left over, I catch up on all the fabulous posts that accumulate in my reader during the week. Every week I find awesome crafts, fun books, and super giveaways! I decided to share some with you on Mondays after my weekend catching up!
Thanksgiving paper quilt: Simple but meaningful craft from Let's Explore that you'll want to display all year long.
Parents Magazine offers a cute printable placemat. Great for keeping little ones busy at the table or while you make dinner!
Make a Thanksgiving storytelling tool from Little Page Turners. These story beads are not only fun to make (and maybe wear?) but they're a helpful tool!
Great preschool gift suggestions from Feels Like Home. The post indicates they're geared for girls, but most suggestions are universally great!
A list of motivating ideas for literacy from Childhood 101. Proud to say we can check off all ten!
Check out the list of Thanksgiving books at Hope is the Word. This post is part of a great meme, Read Aloud Thursday, and there are links to previous years' Thanksgiving lists as well!
A gift set giveaway at Tiger Tales. Could be for your family or could be a gift for a child on your list! Ends 11/30.
Scholastic Prize Pack Giveaway at Brimful Curiosities. Fun variety of books in this prize pack! Ends 12/6.
Scholastic Board Books at Mom Tried It. Great for the baby/toddler set! Ends 11/23 - hurry!
Katydid and Kid has two great giveaways this week: Klutz Books (11/28) and Scholastic DVDs (11/30)
Tomorrow (Tuesday) I'll be posting about a couple Thanksgiving books and crafts, and Wednesday will be the early edition of Feed Me Books Friday for those who aren't too swamped with the holidays this week to post their favorite books!
