We team up to run the kids play activities link-up, It’s Playtime, each week with Hands on : as we grow, Let the Children Play, The Imagination Tree and Messy Kids.   Each week you, our beloved readers submit your favorite play posts to show up on all of our blogs.   This week I have the honor of announcing the round-up posts.   These were the posts that you either liked the most or clicked through and visited.   They are great ideas worth a visit – go congratulate them on being the highlights of the week and vote with “likes” on your favorite link-ups mentioned below. .it's Playtime activities Paint Chip Rainbow Mosaics.   We happened upon the stand at our local store right when they were changing out the brands of paint chips – we have several hundred chips just waiting for a fun project like this one!! I played the game “pick-up-sticks” when I was a kid!   This is a great way to help your kids work on fine motor skills – definitely check out the rest of Creativity my Passion’s site, she has tons of learning activities. Want to see what someone’s sensory tub looks like?   I   love gleaning inspiration from others.   Living at the Whitehead Zoo has a lot of great “tub” ideas – like adding feathers and Styrofoam. My daughter loves bananas and is learning to read – I love the idea of writing her a secret message on bananas.   Thanks Laura at Come Together Kids for this simple idea! Tape, tape, tape!   What kiddo doesn’t love a roll of the sticky stuff?   No Such Thing as Bad Weather had a great time with her kids and rolls and rolls of masking tape! Are you missing the bubble wands in your bottles?   Or making homemade solution and looking for a “wand”?   Mom and a Kiddo made bubble wands out of pipecleaners and beads. .
