2011 – Best Ideas for Kids

by Jen in best of 2011

Well, 2011 is behind us. Time to turn the page on the calendar. A fresh start. It is also a great time to look back and reflect on all that happened in 2011. Here on the blog I have been reviewing which posts have been “popular” and those posts that I just love. Funny how they aren’t always the same? What makes more people visit one post over another one is still a mystery to me. 
Today I am taking part in a gigantic blog hop involving blogs from around the world (some of the same blogs from the Creative Christmas Countdown) and we are all linking up our favourite posts from 2011. If you write a blog feel free to link up below.
So, what was my most popular post of the past year? Well, in terms of numbers it was my I’m Bored post. 
In this post I shared my idea of creating a jar filled with things for your kids to do when they say “I’m bored”…the “I’m not bored jar.” I have a feeling this one was popular because we can all relate to this situation. How many times have your kids said “I’m bored.”
Now, sentimentally my favourite was hard to pin down…I think my favourite was On the Verge. A post about taking the time to stop and enjoy our children, they grow up so fast.
Now on with the Blog Hop! Take a look around the blog-o-sphere and see the top posts at these blogs and many more are…

Great idea! I hear “I’m bored” quite frequently during a break in school. I wonder if you have included chores on the little papers?
