MaryAnne of MamaSmiles and I are counting down our top 5 posts of 2014 together. Why? It’s fun to see what jives on different-yet-similar blogs. The year end is also a time of celebration and rejuvenation for another year of blogging. And I would argue that a blogging year should be counted like dog years!
My #4 most popular post for 2014 is Top 10: Best Beginning Chapter Book Series (ages 6-9) with 14,206 views.
It’s so hard to find a great beginning chapter book series and yet, we must, because our kids are reading ferociously and independently for the first time. I was inspired to put together this list after reading aloud several dozen early chapter books about rainbows and fairies with brain-numbing repetitive plots to my girls.
MamaSmiles #4 Post of 2014 is: Mess-Free Art for Kids!
MaryAnne has made several improvements in her set up for mess-free art using just a zip lock bag, masking tape, white paper, paint and hair gel (or shampoo and food coloring). It’s ingenious!
