Our features this week (the most clicked on links from last week) are:

Meadow at Pagan Homeschool shared this fun science experiment she used to talk about gasses and other phases of matter.  She also has additional matter phases resources at!

Lauren at Tutus and Tea Parties shared this awesome Marshmallow Catapult!  See how she combined some serious fun and physics at!

Brittney at Mom's Heart shared this unique way to make a themed meal!  Check out her Humpty Dumpty Lunch at!  

Many thanks to these awesome ladies for sharing their great activities with us!  If you missed them last week, but sure to check them out!

Now, onto this week's Teach Me Tuesday linky party!

The guidelines are simple:

1- Link to your post, not your whole blog.
2- Your post must be family-friendly.
3- Your post must somehow relate to education (this includes crafts, games, experiments, printables, recipes, essays, and anything else related to education!).
4- After you link up, visit some of the other links and let them know what you think!  Everybody likes to get feedback and know their post is appreciated!
5- This is optional, but I'd sure be grateful if you spread the word by posting the Teach Me Tuesday button (above) on your blog or post!  The party only gets better with more bloggers!
**Please make sure you picked up the button from Preschool Powol Packets, and not my old blog!**

That's it!  I can't wait to get to know you and see what you're up to!  Also, you're always welcome to follow me on GFC, Facebook, Google + or subscribe to my monthly newsletter (links are in the sidebar)!

Thanks for inviting me to your blog - love it!!! I too am a teacher turned homeschooler, and it is brilliant to find others who are in a similar boat. Your blog is full of great stuff - I have plans to visit every week!

Brittney, I was happy to feature it!

Thanks for coming and linking up, Vanessa! I hope we see you again!

Thanks, Lyndsay! It may be a decision we re-visit every year, but right now my daughter (and I!) absolutely love it!

Thanks so much, Michelle! I totally enjoyed Getting Through the Day too!
