Tot School Gathering Place ~ Week 1

I pondered the idea for a new spin on the name of this post for awhile and settled on Tot School Gathering Place.  It isn’t super catchy but encompasses my heart behind this. Gather together here, gather ideas from other blogs, share your own ideas on your own blog.  Browse around at the other posts linked up, leave a few comments if you have time, and be sure to check back to see if your blog was featured!

Tot School Gathering Place

What fun I have looking through the blogs that linked up and have allowed me to feature their photos and ideas!  If you missed last week’s Tot School post, be sure to read it to see why you see kids that aren’t mine over here now!

Young tots and pom poms are one of my favorite things!  This 16 month old cutie had a great time with such a simple activity that is so great for tots!  Visit My Spare Time to see more of what she was up to!



When you have more than one child, it is more difficult to balance it all.  I love how Becky Marie from For This Season shows how she makes it work. Her tot is 25 months old, but her baby and son in PreK join in also!



I always love seeing how other mom’s display their Tot School set up.  This set up is from Stir the Wonder, with activities for Caden, who is 24 months old. Visit her post for a peek into what their “Letter C” week looked like!

Please read this carefully before linking up! This may no longer be the linky for you, so please glance through this list to be sure you want to stick around and link up with us!
By linking up you agree to the following:
  1. A photo and a link to your post may appear in a future Tot School post. You give me permission to choose a photo from the post you link up, and give me permission to use your ideas in my post. I will link back to you, mention your blog, and give you full credit for any ideas choose to share form your post. If you don’t want me sharing photos, your blog, or ideas, please don’t link up.
  2. Your post is a post written specifically for Tot School and not just an idea for tots. It features your own child{ren} in action. This is a community for moms to come together and share their journey with Tot School virtually.
  3. Provide a link back to Tot School within your blog post {you can use this link: or a direct link to the weekly post you link up to} if you link up. If you do not link back to Tot School, your link will be deleted. Link backs on the sidebar, or in a massive “I link up here” page don’t count ~ they are too difficult for me to find and the first thing I look for when verifying links is the link back.
  4. Link up your exact Tot School post {not your blog homepage} if you are unsure how to do that read this!
Each week I will feature photo{s} and ideas from blogs who link up. Sometimes it may be one simple idea, sometimes it may be a collection based around a concept {such as fine motor skill ideas}.
