It's Playtime: Fabulous Favorites

This week on It's Playtime I'm sharing some of our reader's favorite posts; those blogs which were viewed the most or "liked" on the linky.  

With the most views last week, Walnut Acres shared their weaving project reusing an old baby gate and left-over fabric.  Weaving is great for developing fine motor skills and I bet it kept these boys focused for quite awhile!     

  Putti Prapancha shared a different way to use a spin art machine.  Putti used markers, instead of paint, to create beautiful and unique spirals.  

Happy Little Messes reused a set of old tubing (found at the recycling center!) to create a Marble-Water Launcher.  Apparently the idea came from an episode of "Curious George".  Who says you can't learn anything from T.V?  

Living at the Whitehead's Zoo was popular last week with their Recycled Robot post.  "Fixer" the robot was created for a school project but remains a part of the Whitehead's family.  

And who doesn't love a good volcano?  Michelle's Charm World has been taking a virtual vacation and visited Cotopaxi in the Andes Mountains.  After "exploring" one of the "world's most active volcanos" they decided to make their own using playdough, pipe cleaners, and some toy jungle animals.
