family fun friday

If you’re a mom keep reading because we have some wonderful fun ideas to inspire you with your little ones and family. My blogging friends are linking up craft ideas, fun in the kitchen, preschool & homeschool ideas, and ways to spend time as a family.

My blog is growing but I need your help, please like my facebook page and help spread the word about Thanks so much!

On Mondays I’ve been posting encouraging words for MOMs. If you’d like some encouragement I recommend reading my latest post “Faith” which is a post written to encourage moms in their faith!

And last week I shared some great FREE printables to make your own Father’s Day Card. Click the image for more information including a detailed tutorial.


On Fridays I host Family Fun Friday so you can meet all my blogging friends and get great ideas.

AND, if you haven’t met her already, please meet my co-Host Diane Haller from MyLifeAsRobin’s Wife. Diane is a volunteer co-host and she is awesome. She’ll be checking out your blog posts and commenting along with me and she helps me pick the top posts. We’ll be working together to help promote this link party! Please make sure to stop by Diane’s Facebook page and give her a “Like” when you have a chance {not required but it’s nice to do} :-).


Thanks to all my blogging friends for linking up last week at Family Fun Friday. I have a special YouTube Video for you at Thank You All My Blogging Friends! So many great ideas, crafts and things to do! If you link up, you permit me to use your pictures/ideas as part of future posts and/or social media. Once we have 200 links I will select a winner of some FREE jewelry. This will likely mean I’ll award a prize every other week. We had over 100 bloggers link up last week. You all are amazing – you bless my socks off with your awesome posts!

Some examples of the jewelry I am giving away. Your link-up and/or comment is your entry to WIN. BTW, I can make wedding party custom jewelry – contact me if you’re interested. 🙂

7 New Pieces

As always we had a wonderful turnout last week with SO MANY wonderful ideas. If you’d like to “bookmark” these ideas for later on PINTEREST here are a few handy buttons to help you keep track of this list of ideas. To PIN a specific blogger’s post please click through and PIN their post directly from their site. Thanks!


Now on to some fabulous posts for moms.

First, if you can use an idea for honoring the Dad’s in your life, stop by and check out this adorable Father’s Day Menu idea.  I know so many dads who would be blessed by this thoughtfulness!

Second, I needed to read this post about cleaning out your closet for a “Content Closet” So many of us can relate to this post on some level.  And, who doesn’t need more contentment…even with our clothes.

Next, anyone traveling this summer?  Try out these Family Travel Tips –  Make the traveling part of the vacation and not the dreaded time getting to the vacation. 🙂

Speaking of traveling…Reading is such an important skill and really a lifestyle that we pass on to our children.  Here is a great post on Learning Through Literature.  Check out this great unit.

I couldn’t resist this post with these Cupcakes on Parade…beautiful and perfect for families! 🙂

Did you know that your children can bake outside???  Visit Living with Moore Babies and see how they are Baking Cookies in a shoe box outside…

And, finally, here are some Creative Ways for you and your children to be kind!  I once had someone bless me and my son with their act of kindness for that day…here are some great ways that you can carry on this great tradition with your children.

Thanks again for all your wonderful ideas! I hope these Family Friendly and Fun ideas inspire you.

    Monica and Diane, I was so taken aback and BLESSED when I saw my Cupcakes on Parade post was featured. Wow! I have to share this with all my friends. 🙂
    The second post of the series is live and I added it as my link today.

    My prayers go out to you, Monica, and your family as your state is ablaze. May God continue to keep you safe and restore, restore, restore. Not to get “preachy” but we all should thank God for every happy, healthy, safe and peaceful day we have and never take it for granted. (I’m preaching to myself, here).

    Much love,

      Thank you so much for your note Sinea! You are so right that we have so much to be thankful for and we can’t take anything for granted. We are so prone to that aren’t we! Praise God for His goodness! Blessings to you!!!
