{The Very Best Kids Activities of 2012 from the Kid Blogger Network}

What was your favourite blog post of 2012? Is there something that you remember reading somewhere that really stuck with you? Or maybe something that you immediately pinned and thought, "I MUST remember that!"

I have a few that were really memorable for me as a reader, which I will share in a moment. First, let me introduce to you the KBN Best of 2012 blog hop! Over 100 of your favourite Kid Bloggers are sharing their 'Best of 2012' posts and inviting other bloggers to link up your own 'best' post of the year, too.

For readers, this is a superb opportunity to find ALL the best kid related posts of 2012 in one spot! If you're a blogger, take advantage of this opportunity to get your 'best' kid-related post seen - it might be your personal favourite or your most popular or most pinned post. Just please link up only ONE post.

I'm sharing my most popular post of 2012 - 5 Tips for Telling your Preschooler How Babies Are Made. The response to it was quite overwhelming - thank you all! And if you missed it, now is your chance to catch up.

The runners up included 'Toddler Chores for Little Helpers

and my 'Alternative Painting 38 Different Ways' round-up.

So, what was my favourite post as a reader? It's hard to choose just one, but my creative side loved +NurtureStore's Garden Tile Art, and the mother in me was touched and inspired by Pink Dryer Lint's Why I Never Criticize My Appearance post (ok, so that one was really a repost from the previous year, but I just read it this time around).
