BIG NEWS! We’re celebrating our 12th birthday of The Educator’s Spin On It!
Hard to believe that it’s been twelve years since we first started this website for parents. So many things have changed since then. Our kids have gotten older, that’s for sure and our experiences have grown as individuals and as a family.
Fun fact: My husband is now a little part of behind the scenes on our site as well as my kids.
There’s one thing that hasn’t changed and that’s my passion for creating for you fun ideas to do with your kids. Sharing ways to ensure you’re able to give them just what they need to grow and become smart, happy, and loved kids.
I was looking through our 1000+ kids activities on our site from over the years and found that there are some things our website’s visitors like you are often drawn towards. I thought it might be fun to do a top 10 activities for our 12th birthday.
We’d love to know which post is your favorite from the site, so please leave us a comment to let us know.
