Marble Race Track

I spotted this fun activity while browsing Pinterest and thought it would be a great activity to make for Spencer.  The fabulous ideas I find on pinterest is a definite highlight of what keeps me going back but another one of my favorite things about pinning is it leads me to find blogs that I may not have found otherwise.  There is literally thousands and thousands of blogs in this big ole world … [Read more...]
