The Really Crafty Link Party #178 featured posts!

Money Conversation Starters for Kids - free printables

Financial literacy is something all parents struggle to instill into their children. And having worked in the financial world for the past 21 years I can assure you that, sadly, that kind of literacy is still scarce.



It may be hard to determine at what age is ideal to teach your kids about money, but this is something I honestly recommend you to do. Obviously, a 5-year old has zero interest in learning about budgeting, but they probably understand that money can get you things you want and they are usually willing to play games that include some sort of pretend shopping - at least my kids did at that age.

As a parent, teaching our kids financial fundamentals may not be an easy task. To make it easier, it helps to use fun games and questions to get kids thinking and talking about money. Printable conversation starters provide an excellent way to do this, so when I was asked to share this, I didn't even hesitate.

DIY Eva Foam bookmarks/party favors

I must have mentioned it here about a zillion times already, but summer is the busiest time of the year for me in terms of birthdays. And birthdays mean birthday cakes (I have two to show off here already, but I still need to download the photos from my phone), birthday parties and party favors. 

So today I'm sharing the bookmarks I made form my son's birthday and that we added to some goodies bags as party favors.

They are made with Eva foam and were the easiest thing to assemble.

Hello, I hope you've enjoyed a lovely weekend, and welcome to The Really Crafty Link Party #178! Come and share your projects, your ideas and what else is inspiring you this week.

And as this is a party, try to visit at least a couple of other links and spread the word on social media - the more, the merrier.

The Really Crafty Link Party is focused on crafts, so the idea is for you to link up all your crafty posts: DIYs, printables, home decor, tutorials, recipes, whatever you want to share. Feel free to add as many links as you want, and old posts are welcome too!

I have no problem if you want to add the same link in more than one week; it will still be eligible for a feature but please note that I will comment and add it to the Pinterest board only once.You can add posts on other subjects (family friendly please), but only craft related posts will have a chance to be featured and will be pinned to the party's Pinterest board.

If you host your own party, add it too - it may not be featured, but you'll be sharing it with all of us anyway, and everyone loves to discover new parties!

Do you have an Etsy shop? You can add your items to the party too, they may not be eligible for a feature but you'll be getting additional exposure anyway.




Instructions: Select all code above, copy it and paste it inside your blog post as HTML

If you follow me via any social media (icons in the side bar) let me know in the comments and I'll make sure to follow you back!

By linking up you give me permission to use your photos in features or round-ups, and to share your posts on social media (always with a link back to you for proper credit).

The perfect printables for your next camping trip

 Summer is the perfect season for camping, but if you have picky kids like mine you need all the help you can get to distract them from the ants, the flies, the dust and whatever else they find to complain about. These printables are just perfect to get your kids excited for the next camping trip!



The perfect printables for your next camping trip - free camping printables

Catching fireflies, roasting gooey marshmallows and telling old family stories are popular night camping activities. Some of these memories will last a lifetime and have minimal expenses attached. And this is what makes camping a great travel option for families - not to mention that it's also lighter on the budget.

DIY bumblebee gift tags

What do you do when you run out of gift tags? You make more, obviously. And of the cuteness overload variety, of course. That's what I did last weekend :)


DIY bumblebee gift tags



Spring and summer are our busiest seasons in terms of birthday parties - both of family and friends. With the noticeable exceptions of my father-in-law and my husband (which have fall/winter birthdays) virtually everyone else in the family celebrates on spring and summer.
