{Play} Kids Co-op Playdate #9

Happy Friday!  It’s time for our playdate!

The kids were hit by a particularly nasty virus this week on top of all the busyness of late. I haven’t had much time for anything, but taking care of them, so there are about 30 one or two month old activities I have in backlog that I can’t wait to post and another 30 activities I can’t wait to try with them.

What have you been up to this week?

Need some inspiration?  As promised, there’s a DOUBLE feature today! Here are my faves from the two last playdates … if you’ve been featured, please take a badge!

Is this Golf Tee Porcupine from Reading Confetti the cutest way ever to practice fine motor skills, or what?

And learning math never looked so fun (and delicious) as this M&M Math activity from Raise A Boy:

I normally don’t feature a blog twice, but how killer is this super science Water Wall Ball Run activity from Familylicious!

Another fun – colorful – rolling activity:  this Printmaking with Cars & Toys activity from Tea for Monkeys:

These candy-coated cookie Sunshine Lollipops from Hungry Happenings would brighten even the crankiest toddler’s day:

And if that doesn’t work, I absolutely LOVE these Meditation Friends from Moon Sprig:

Now – time to link up your best kids’ art, crafts, recipes, and activities!  I’ll feature my favorites next week.  Please try to show some love to everyone else participating by visiting a few links and leaving comments or sharing, tweeting, or pinning if the mood strikes.  Don’t forget to grab a badge:
