After School Link Up

Welcome to the After School Link Up!

Pinecrest Gardens with kids

We've just returned from our spring break trip in Miami.  We had a wonderful time with Nana and Papa.  While we were there we visited Pinecrest Gardens, the former Parrot Jungle.  It no longer houses parrots, but it is a beautiful garden to visit.  

Pinecrest Gardens with Kids

This lush subtropical garden was so fun to explore.  Large banyan trees canopy the garden of beautiful flowers and trees. Ponds throughout the garden have large turtles and fish to watch or feed.  There is also a splash pad and playground for kids.  Little J wants you to know there were some huge lizards to see too!

Thank you to everyone who linked up last week!

After School Link Up Montessori inspired high tea party
Montessori Inspired Tea Party at Enchanted School Room

Enchanted School Room shared how some Montessori practical life skills can lead up to a wonderful high tea party...for the boys! They practiced pouring skills, manners, and even flower arranging. My kids would love this "graduation" tea party.

After School Link Up Chinese Chop
Make a Chinese Chop at Marie's Pastiche

Marie Claude at Marie's Pastiche shared the cultural background of Chinese Chops and how she and her daughter made one.  She has even provided a few ideas for characters and links to character generators if you're interested in trying one yourself.  I know it might be some work, but my little Sassyfras would love this project.

Thanks for the Feature!
The chops can also be made simpler by using English initials :)
