10 Top Posts For July

Here is a look at 10 posts that I have really enjoyed in the month of July. Normally I try to categorise them into headings, but it is too diverse this month, with the posts being to hard to define into 3 or 4 neat little sections, so here they are in no particular order:

(1). A Space of My Own: 8 Instant Tent Ideas for PreSchoolers
I am not sure how Preschool Mama constantly comes up with her nifty little ideas, but this is another great post from her.

(2). Teaching Kindness
PsychMama reviews a book titled – Above All Be Kind: Raising a Humane Child in Challenging Times – by Zoe Weil. Sounds like a great read.

(3). Ten things I’ve learnt about China
On a blog from the UK newspaper The Guardian. Some interesting facts that I certainly didn’t know about China.

(4). nanna’s and biddy bags
I just loved the photo of these nannas posted by three buttons and these biddy bags are so very cool. three buttons is a craft blogger from Melbourne.

(5). Sunday Supper
Kirsty at kootoyoo is a fellow Melbourne blogger who is also very crafty and creative. This recipe for kids rice paper rolls is fab.

(6). Worth Musing Over
Gypsy at Domestically Blissed takes a very thoughtful approach to her parenting and this post has a list of great open ended questions for children.

(7). Love Sick
A very sweet anecdote from Tiff at Three Ring Circus who has to watch her little girl suffer through so much illness.

(8). Hypnobirth was “really Zen” for Jessica Alba, rewarding for others
Another excellent post from the Crunchy Domestic Goddess. I have never used hypnobirthing, so was interested in reading a little more about it.

(9). Crayon Nibbles
Candance at Crafty Daisies show us a very cute and simple way to recycle old crayons.

(10). Maximise your staycation with preschoolers
Simplemom gives some great tips on how to manage and enjoy the stay at home holiday.
