I have come across some great new blogs this month, along with the fabulous regulars that I visit. As we are still in school holidays here in Victoria (Australia) this list has a kid activity focus. So if you are looking for some inspiration, check out some of these links and have some fun!
1. Mud Brick House

From a blog that I have just come across all the little things This is so completely gorgeous. I haven’t had time to try it yet with my kids, but am hoping to do so before the holidays end.
2. Holiday Painting and Printing
Always full of great ideas, Kate at Picklebums gets creative with the kid’s paint at home using household items like potato mashers and bubble wrap.
3. Design Your Own Stickers

Zakka Life is another recent find for me. In this post Jessica shows to make your own stickers using contact and permanent markers. So cute!
4. Textured Paintings
Makes and Takes also takes a twist on traditional painting by adding flour to the paint.
5. Vacation Memory Jars
From the world of Martha Stewart.
Filled with souvenirs collected on trips and pictures developed afterward, they are like little worlds that can be visited again and again.
6. Containers And Lids
7. Matchbox Chest Of Drawers
From things to make and do, a very cute idea. This tutorial shows how to make a very beautiful version of the drawers, but with just some basic materials and simple instructions, kids would be able to do this themselves.
8. Mini Art Museum
