Weekend Links

Welcome back to weekend links! This is my chance to share fun and informative links and kid-friendly fun that I have encounter in my weekly Internet travels. The cooling temps seem to be a signal that the hot days of summer are behind us. BUT, there’s no reason families can’t enjoy nature and the great outdoors in these waning days of summer. Here’s some simply delightful crafts and activities from some of my blogging friends-all guaranteed to make you SMILE.
