No Need For The Sunday Paper

It's the late morning edition of my weekly links post. :)

Pigs Do Fly: This mom has a wee bit of an obsession with making Bento Style lunches. And I definitely don't mind if she'll post about it and share photos of her bento tools, etc. If you are a lover of Muffin Tin Monday, you will definitely want to check this post out!

Chica and Jo is one of my all time favorite sites. Crafting projects with kids, without kids, and for kids, this site has it all! And every friday, they feature a project from around the blogosphere. This past Friday they featured a wonderful Halloween canning jar luminaries project that is just adorable from Crafts By Amanda. Check out Amanda's site for the full tutorial.

Little Hands, Big Work has a simple post about "What's out" in her children's playroom. She did a playroom redo. I encourage anyone/everyone who is or wants to promote an atmosphere of learning by play in their home to read this post. It's not about what the room looks like, but more about how she is purposeful about the space. And you don't have to have a playroom in your home to make it happen. It just takes a little planning.

That's it for this week, three gems worth a read.

Oh, and don't forget tomorrow's MTM theme is Fall Harvet/Halloween!

Scripture For Sunday
1 Corinthians 9:24-27
24Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize.

25Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last; but we do it to get a crown that will last forever. 26Therefore I do not run like a man running aimlessly; I do not fight like a man beating the air. 27No, I beat my body and make it my slave so that after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified for the prize.


  1. Thanks again! My fave this week-Bento lunches:-). Awesome site!!

  2. Thank you for these! GOOD scripture too!

  3. Random question:
    I taught my son (35months) numbers by just counting out loud and counting objects. He can count objects and count out loud to 13 . However, he doesn't recognized the numeral 3, etc. For my next child I'll teach him to count and the numerals at the same time. I don't know how to bridge the gap for my 3year old now. It feels like I'm just holding or pointing to numbers and asking what it is and he may guess a couple before saying he doesn't want to anymore. How can I teach him that a 6 is a 6, etc? Please help!
