Goodbye April, hello May!

My blog turned five this month! FIVE! I can't believe I've been tapping away for that long. Reading back on some of my older posts, it's quite the miracle that I am still standing...

The competition to win a Blog with Pip course or access to Pip's Blog Yay! resources is open until midnight Friday night, 1/5/2015. Find out how to enter right here.

Thanks for a wonderful first five years, guys. And for putting up with my crafty ways. Here's to five more good years coming right up!

PS - When I started blogging my Badoo wasn't even two yet. That blows my mind.
Doing things together makes for a connected, cheerful kind of family (mostly!). A good idea is to try something none of you have ever done before, so you can experience something new together. Or let the kids teach you something. It makes them so proud.

Here are some ideas for your family:

30 writing prompts for kids
A list of really, really good books
isit another great hidden place for kids
ry parkour
0 excellent ways to take a break!
Now, even though I know lots of my readers claim to be un-crafty, I hope that doesn't stop you from bringing some cool ideas to the kids. Most of the 'crafts' I'm sharing for #screenfreedom require minimal parental craft skills, even if your kids are really little.

Have a go at something like:

6 lovely things to make with clay
Finger knitting even I can do
 variety of ways to feed the birds
weet nature tables (go away rain!)
Oh and make this lush pudding too!
I took a nice long break from blogging through most of April. I need to switch off completely from time to time and abruptly leave when I feel the urge. I love it and then I don't so I go away for a while and then I love it again. That's a passion for you. What passion could you do with a break from lately?

Not a lot of thinking going on this month:

Do you have a book in you?
hy screen freedom matters so much
 reluctantly got #inthepicture once again
