Remember when Linkys were all the rage in blogging? They were a great way to find and get to know other bloggers before social media and Pinterest became mainstream. It didn’t hurt that they brought a ton of traffic to your site too. Lindsi and I started our Fun Stuff Fridays linky back in 2011. We kept it going for 20 weeks before it fizzled out (or we got sick of doing it, I’m not sure which happened).
It is now soon to be 2017 and at lot of the links in those linkies no longer exist. Plus, I’ve let my link up subscription lapse so you can’t get to them anyway. Instead of deleting the Fun Stuff Fridays posts, however, I have decided to clean them up and make sure our featured links are still valid. After all, on a rare occasion I get traffic from one of these old posts. The linky may be gone but the featured posts are still valid as of December 2016…
Welcome to Fun Stuff Fridays. We had over 200 submissions last week and we were blown away! We are so impressed by everyone’s creativity, passions, talents, and adventures. Everyone who submitted had such great ideas! We wish we could feature all of them! Can’t wait to see your amazing submissions this week! Remember, that this weeks linky party will be THREE weeks long because of the holidays coming up. Feel free to submit as many ideas as you want over that time. And remember- spread the word!
Our joint favorite pick was the Indoor Snowball Fight submitted by Next To Heaven. I mean let’s be honest here people, this is simply one of the coolest ideas out there! This is on our list of things to do for our neighbors for next year FOR SURE! So fun, creative, and who doesn’t love a good snowball fight?
Jamie’s number one pick was Coffee Filter Snowman submitted by Happily Mother After. This cute craft is something kids of any age can participate in. You could have each person in your family make one and then you’d end up with the most adorable family of snowmen!
Lindsi’s favorite pick from this past week was Mr. Reindeer submitted by Playing With Words 365. For starters, the reindeer is so adorable! It’s a great way to engage your child in learning. She offers printable foods with letters on them to help with letter sounds, letter recognition, and spelling. Our kids would love to have a reindeer to feed!
