Monday, Funday: Everyone Joins In!

Welcome to the first edition of the Monday Funday carnival!

You can use any post from the past week showing something fun that you did with your own kiddos. It can be playing a game, baking something, whatever you choose, the idea is to share how you spend time with your kids so that we can all get new ideas.

When using Mr. Linky, put your name and a couple of words describing your post, then use the direct link to that post. Please link back to here so that we can all find the great ideas. You can find the banner on the sidebar of my blog, but it is completely optional. (Ignore the Mmm Monday part, they don't have my carnival as an option.) Now....on to the show!


This week we went to Build A Bear. I have no idea why it took so long for us to go, but we had a blast. Bre received gift cards as a Christmas gift, and now her biggest request is more gift cards.

After much thought, she chose a bear and carefully pulled together her wardrobe, using mixing and matching pieces. Now DH and Lala want one, too! It was so much fun, and you could easily buy a bear and outfit for less than $20. Yes, that is a little expensive for a teddy bear, but the experience is completely worth it! I also reminded her that we could make Fluffy (great imagination, huh?) some new clothes when she was ready.

The most surprizing thing to me? They have a discount plan, when you buy $100, you get a $10 gift card. Cool! I see us spending a lot of money in that store in the coming months....

So what did you do this week?

Oh no...my kids are gone and I can't play. I'm a sad bear. Do they have those for sale at Build a Bear? I can make one just like me.

This is such a great idea!

We are taking my middle munchkin to Build-a-Bear on Friday for her birthday, I am soooo glad to hear that it is worth it!

Hmmm...wish I had a post to apply to this...I feel like it was all I could do to get dressed in the mornings! Not feeling very motivated these days, but I am glad to visit you to hear about what other people are up to! :)

This brought back memories - I used to be a manager for Build-A-Bear! It looks like you had a blast. Did she say the Bear Promise?
