A Week of After School Activities Plus the After School Linky Party - Week 19

It's After School Linky Party time! Winter has gotten really cold for us this week, so I'm looking for ideas that we can do inside. Luckily, there were many fun ideas linked up last week. You can find book lists, crafts, learning activities, and more.

I've pulled together five of my favorite ideas from last week in this after-school planner. Have fun playing and learning together!

Day 1: Practice your sight words with a fun game of Paper Football Sight Words from Sugar Aunts.

Day 2: Read a book about the Civil Rights Movement. Pragmatic Mom has a great book list for you.

Day 3: Practice weaving with a straw weaving loom. Mama Smiles shows you how.

Day 4: Who's been out in the snow? Find out by going on an animal tracks scavenger hunt with Share It! Science News.

Day 5: Make and walk on a snowflake balance beam. Sugar Aunts shows you how to make one and some fun ways to play with it.

Check the linky below for even more great ideas.
