Link Roundup - Hungry Bears Edition

So I bought a used bike trailer/jogging stroller. Goose and I have strolled over to the farm twice in four days, and both times I actually did a little bit of jogging with it. One of my catch-phrases is that I don't run unless hungry bears are involved, so I guess they must be around here somewhere.

Let's do something that won't aggravate my sore leg muscles, though.

MAKE
Admittedly I will definitely need Hubs and/or my dad to help with this, here are some Free Downloadable Swing Set Plans at BYO Swingset.

My favorite is the bird in flight on this Quick Craft Colorful Window Display, I am completely in love with this Simple Farm Take-Along Toy, and YOU MUST TRY THIS! (hint: it's Giant Bubbles), and I'm still laughing over the Jumping Bean Races. Also, I am stunned at how much these Super Easy Cool Comets kick the crap out of my Sponge Balls. From my very favorite-est online hangout, Frugal Family Fun Blog.

Girl in Air has a super How To Crochet Sesame Street Hats - VERY well done!

These Paper Plate Animal Crafts from No Time For Flashcards are A.DOR.ABLE!

I am completely enthralled by the Lavender Wands as described at Peculiar Momma. (There is another link to click through to see how to make the lovelies, but I have to give PM some props for pointing me to it.)

EAT
Feels Like Home lists 10 Things to Cook in a Muffin Tin, not counting muffins, of course. :>)

This might pry me away from Parmesan cheese with my popcorn (well, for a minute anyway) - Cinnamon Vanilla Popcorn at Leafy Treetop Spot.

This sounds different (and more eat-the-whole-thing-likely) than other similar recipes I've seen: My Granny's Chocolate Cobbler at The Pioneer Woman's Tasty Kitchen.

Since I seem to be famous for running out of all kinds of important ingredients and not realizing it until I'm committed (i.e. halfway mixed up), I am going to hang on to this Rainy Day Magic Chocolate Cake from Salsa Pie.

Ohhh, these Cooks Illustrated Blueberry Scones at The Review Lady sound amazing.

A nice change (with chocolate chips!) from banana bread is this Banana Monkey Bars recipe from A Soft Place to Land.

I've made something similar before to these Green French Fries at Dinner: A Love Story (hee!) but my recipe included my beloved Parmesan cheese with the bread crumbs, I think.

DO
Dr. Ray Guarendi tells us how we can get our kids to Nag No More over at Faith & Family Live.

Wish I'd have known this a few weeks ago - Momadvice posted on Freezing Blueberries in 3 Easy Steps.

How Does She? demonstrates a Great Magic Trick that even my Goose could do with a little help.

This Preschool Math Lesson with Lego Measurements from No Time for Flashcards is really cool - I like the estimating part of it.

Whoof, I'm still trying to wrap my mind around all these posts, but start with Intro to Sun Protection post (my title, not Katie's...) and then hit the very thorough Natural Sunscreen Review at Kitchen Stewardship. She also has some giveaways and stuff going on, so click around a little.

Who knew? You can Remove Permanent Marker with an Eraser, as seen at Premeditated Leftovers.

I can hardly believe this Chandelier Redo with Mod Podge at The Hand Me Down House - it turned out beautifully! (A few of the middle step pictures had me wondering...)

Impress Your Kids has a review/walk through of sorts of the book Have a New Kid by Friday - I haven't clicked around much yet, but I'd like to do so, and soon!

Happy clicking, friends!
