Hi! Welcome to the Love to Learn Linky #5! Thanks to all the creative bloggers who shared their ideas with us last week. This week’s features were inspired by the fact that The Babe is headed back to school in a week and that my blogger friends have been giving me great advice to make the first day of school go smoothly.
Scotch Make Amazing Contest
Before we get to the features, I have a favor to ask :) Left Brain Craft Brain’s DIY Recycled Suspension Bridge is a finalist in the Scotch Make Amazing Contest. Please vote for me so that I can win $5,000! Click here to VOTE and click here to check out the bridge. Thank you!!!
10 Back to School Activities
Help nervous kids prepare for the first day with a Back to School with Chester the Raccoon craft from Artsy Momma.
Make some First Day of School Handprints with free printables from Fun Handprint Art.
Celebrate the first day with a Letter B Back to School Book from Mini Monets and Mommies.
Trying the homeschool route? Cutting Tiny Bites has a great Home Preschool Schedule to try.
Encourage kids with this Back to School Printable from Krafts & Kiddos.
Simple. Home. Blessings has some great advice on Exploring Art with Kids. I’m going to use some of these tips to get The Babe prepared to learn in all subjects, including art.
Help set kids up for success this fall with some literacy and learning practice rounds, too. Have the kids practice their letters with this easy Matching Uppercase and Lowercase Letters activity from Dabbling Momma.
The kids can explore the mess and learn their letters at the same time with Fishing for Letters Sensory Soup from Multicrafting Momma.
The Loving House of Mama Casale’s Alphabet Ink Stamp Activity combines letter learning with stamping on an unexpected surface.
I loved these Story Time Puppets from Exploring Literacy with Heart. They’re a great way to keep young children involved during story time.

Love to Learn Linky
Now it’s time for some more links! I hope you’ll join me and a few of my friends for a brand new linky party.
Bloggers, share your posts every Thursday and watch as we round them up and share them all over the place. Almost anything goes, we’re just hoping your activities teach kids (or us!) something (science, art, cooking, behavior, crafting, parenting etc…).
The Love to Learn Linky is hosted by:
Left Brain Craft Brain (leftbraincraftbrain.com): Anne is an ex-engineer, current stay-at-home mama writing about crafty ways to encourage creativity (and brain power!) in our kids. Each of her projects gives kids the chance to learn about a new subject and do something crafty at the same time.
Totschooling (totschooling.net): Viviana is a blogging mom to a toddler and a preschooler, sharing ideas and resources for early education. She specializes in unique, hands-on printable activities that are educational, fun and inspire creativity in young minds.
A Little Pinch of Perfect (alittlepinchofperfect.blogspot.com): Katie combines creativity, play, and learning for the perfect mishmash of fun activities that keep kiddos entertained throughout the day. She wholeheartedly believes in the power of play and feels that all activities naturally provide a fun way to learn.
