Risky Pins

Are you on Pinterest?  Do you love it?  I do – it seems hard to believe that a year ago I’d never heard of it and now I’m fairly obsessed.  I’ve been using Pinterest for my own personal fun for awhile now, but I recently started a Pinterest page for The Risky Kids.  I’m finding that it’s a great resource for games, toys, crafts, experiments, cool places to visit … just about anything, really.

I thought I’d share some of my favorite Risky Pins with you, and if everyone seems to enjoy them, make Risky Pins a regular feature on the blog.  Of course, feel free to follow our Pinterest boards – we’re theriskykids.  The more the merrier (and riskier)!
