Happy 2014! I’m so very excited to be back with a brand new round of Discover & Explore! We’re starting off the year with the theme Best of 2013! (Be sure to link up your favorite posts from the past year at the end of this post.)
Changes for Discover & Explore This Year
We’ve made a few changes to the linky that I’m very excited about- the first change being a new host! I’d love to welcome Melissa from Fireflies and Mud Pies! She’s an amazing writer sharing gorgeous crafts and activities for kids. Be sure to check out her site if you haven’t already.
We’re also changing the day of the week our featured posts go live. We’ll be sharing features from previous weeks on Wednesday mornings, then opening the new themed linky later the same day in a separate post.
Favorite Posts from 2013
Last year was an amazing year on Buggy and Buddy. It was my first full year of blogging, and I enjoyed watching our Buggy and Buddy community grow and getting to know many of you. Thank you all so much for your continued support! If you haven’t already, be sure to check out my Top Posts from Buggy and Buddy for the year 2013! You can also follow our Pinterest Board to keep up with all our newest posts!
My co-hosts also had an amazing year! I scoured their fabulous sites looking for my favorite posts of the year to share with you. It was so hard to choose!
I just loved this Invitation to Explore with a Nature Tray from Edventures with Kids! Such a fun way to get kids exploring and nature and critically thinking about the world around them! I’ve used her suggestion here at home to have a magnifying glass readily available for the kids to study their nature treasures.
Seashell Painting Art for Kids tops my favorites from Fantastic Fun and Learning! I’m always a huge fan of invitations to create, and I love the simplicity and beauty of this one.
Fireflies and Mud Pie’s post on losing teeth has always stuck with me ever since I first read it. The First Loose Tooth: Tips, Traditions, and Crafts is just packed full of super useful information and things I had not even thought of myself. It’s been bookmarked on my computer as a reference for when Lucy finally loses her first tooth!
Now it’s your turn! We’d love for you to share how you
