    I’m SO glad that the Kid Blogger Network Activities and Crafts for Kids board is on the list. Although Jamie has been instrumental in getting it popular, it was actually my idea.

    This is a great list of boards! Thanks for posting!

      My apologies PlayDrMom – I thought Jamie had founded the network and the board. I’ll amend my post :)

    I think one the best benefits of Pinterest is giving many parents resources of ideas for ways to incorperate learning at home that educators and blogging have already found online for you. So glad we’re a part of the Kid Blogger Network Activities and Crafts that you listed. Feel free to stop by and follow our Boards too where we enjoy taking ideas and putting an Educators’ Spin On them for parents.

    Thank you so very much for choosing my collection within the Top 10!!!

    As a visual learner myself, I absolutely ADORE the resources that can easily be catalogued thru the Pinterest system! I am so very happy to create a reference library of images that support those who work with children.

    I’m so grateful for your including me.

    This is a wonderful list. I think for any parent they are wonderful to help mix things up, but even more so for those of us who are homeschoolers. Pinterest is such an indispensable resource for finding new and fresh ideas to bring lessons to life and make learning fun. Thank you so much for sharing, I have followed all and then some lol.

    This is a fabulous list (of which I contribute to all, not to brag – just amazed myself at Pinterest). Kid Blogger Network is wonderful as are the ones in the comments. If you are interested in tips from a former Kindergarten, Special Ed., and Early Childhood teacher, now author, I hope you’ll visit my blog:
    One of my most popular posts is my Discipline series (pin link):

    Thanks for putting together such a great list of resources for parents! The comments are really useful, too.

    I’m the founder of a brand new Pinterest directory called to help pinners find fellow pinners with similar interests (such as parenting) more easily. It’s still in beta, but I’d love it if you would consider adding your Pinterest profile to the directory! It’s free.

    THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for such a WONDERFUL list! And TAHNK YOU to everyone who contributed in the comments! I am SO looking forward to going through all the new boards I am following and getting some new ideas to do with my children! I followed a few homeschool ones but is there any more? Obivously there is, but could someone point me at a few boards or pinners!? THANKS AGAIN!!! LOOKING FORWARD TO ANOTHER LIST LIKE THIS IN THE FUTURE!!!!
