{2011 Best Ideas for Kids: Link up your own favourite post of the year}

Happy New Year everyone! I'm back and ready for another year. I can't believe it's been close to a year since I started this blog! Time sure does fly when you're having fun...

So to start off this new year, since the collaborative Creative Christmas Countdown idea turned out to be such a great success, many of us same bloggers plus some more, too, have decided to collaborate on another project - The Best Ideas for Kids of 2011!

The post I'm sharing as my 'Best of 2011' post is one that was an activity we had on our Summer To Do List. It's simple and I'm sure everyone has done it at some point in their lives, but for whatever reason (perhaps because it is so simple?), this post proved very popular. And best of all, Princess Pea and I had a lot of fun making these Rainbow Pasta Necklaces! We still have them and they remain as bright and vibrant as ever! Click on the picture to see the post.

Now, we invite you to join us in the blog hop below and link up your own 'best' kid-related post of 2011, too. It might be your post with the highest page views, it might be the one that garnered the most comments, or it might be your personal favourite of the year. (Just please only link up ONE post. Others will be deleted.) Or just take a browse through the links and see what all your favourite kid-bloggers deem their own 'best' posts of the year. Our hope is that you'll find lots of inspiration for 2012!
