For anyone who is new to joining us, add your posts to the linky at the bottom of the post and they will all be shown across 3 of our host blogs and then pinned to our group board. Please don’t be shy, we welcome everyone and love to see new people joining us each week.

Each week each of us choose a selection of three posts each to feature on our blog along with the next weeks linky. As the number of people linking up each week grows, we are planning increase this and may be able to feature your submissions into separate themed round up posts. Tell your blogging friends and let’s help to showcase lots and lots of your lovely crafts and tutorials each week!

Here are three of the great tutorials shared last week which can provide your little one with some non messy tactile sensory play. We all know that exploring the senses is one of the greatest ways that little ones learn, but often when thinking of tactile sensory play the first thing that pops into your mind is sensory bins perfect for lots of messy play. Although I love those too, some days you just need the mess free solution and these three tutorials are ideal for creating an activity that will give your child plenty of sensory input but without the mess.

A Quick Reminder of Our Rules & Guidelines

    • Link up a few of your suitable posts each week. These can be old or new – it doesn’t have to be something from within that week, but something with a “tutorial” aspect and something pinnable. We particularly welcome crafts (kids or grown ups) and recipes but all tutorials are welcome.
    • Please follow the Pintorials board.
    • And if you could follow the hosts that would be appreciated – We are AnnaKateGude, and Eileen
    • Try to visit at least 3 of the blogs that have linked up and pin something to your own boards
    • Why not comment and let them know you came by from the #Pintorials linky – perhaps they will come and follow you on Pinterest!
    • You don’t have to use the badge below, but if you want to spread the word about the linky then please do or give us a text link or a mention in your linkys list if you prefer. The more people know about the #Pintorials linky, the more can join in and the more pinning we get to do

We can’t wait to see all the fantastic and creative tutorials you have to share with us this week!
