Hey guys! Hope you had a wonderful fall weekend! Hubs and I celebrated all weekend long in Chicago….came home well rested and bags full of loot:) Wanted to share a fun Halloween craft today….have a great day!
Hershey’s and Halloween go hand in hand. When they asked me to come up with a fun little craft to do for Halloween I gladly agreed. This little countdown chain would be a fun weekend or classroom craft. I think the kiddos will have a great time making these….and enjoying them too!
Hey hey…happy Monday! Hope you had a great weekend. It’s that time of year where we have a ton of extra candy in the house….send me some will power would you? My friends at Hershey’s sent a ginormous box of candy asking me to share with you a fun Halloween craft idea. Of course my kids think that I must realllllly be important now—since Hershey sent me candy…#ornot.
Thanks for all your excitement about our possible adventure…. (see Wednesdays post). All we know at this hour is that we are still “in contention”…fingers crossed:) Till then….here is a sweet craft to do this weekend:)
Even though my kiddos are 15 now I still like to come up with a corny little Valentine to give them. We used to spend hours by the table making handmade Valentines when they were little and for some reason I love all the little corny sayings. There’s so many to choose from. But I thought I would give you 5 really easy fun ideas in case you’re looking for a craft to do this weekend. You can knock these out and have Valentines all finished and ready to go.
The one that I made I basically just wrapped a pack of gum. It’s really nothing new…it’s all over Pinterest I’m sure. I created the printable that you can print out and cut out and all you have to do is tape it on a pack of gum and you’re finished. Some of the others that I picked to show you don’t call for any kind of candy which is also nice. It’s fun to give a little treat or something special that doesn’t cost a lot of money. And like always you can search up Pinterest homemade valentines and you will have a huge array of ideas. All you’re going to need for my valentine is some paper or cardstock some scotch tape and scissors. The size of the printable is about 3 x 5.5 so it should wrap around most packs of gum.
Click on HERE to download the printable (I put 3 on one sheet of paper:) (obviously for personal use only….don’t go selling these and telling people you made the printable mkay:)
I thought these were adorable too….I mean who doesn’t love a truck full of donut goodness??

Sharing at Serenity Now
I will be sharing a few things to do/make for Thanksgiving this week and next. It seems every year that Thanksgiving gets no respect….it is that awesome holiday before Christmas…remember? I love Thanksgiving….a holiday about food…and thanks…what’s not to love? I wanted to share with you this fun kids treat that would work great for a Thanksgiving party at school. I shared it recently over at Jen’s…but I didn’t want you to miss it:)
It seems we are always looking for a fun way to present a treat for the holidays or school gatherings. These little graham cracker “wheat stalks” would be so cute lining a kids table at Thanksgiving time. Even better, you could put the older kids in charge of making and displaying them for the younger ones…win win!
I used peanutbutter for the filling….but you could use something else if you have allergy kiddos….
What you will need:
graham crackers snapped into rectangles
dipping white chocolate or milk chocolate
To put together:
flatten the top part of the straw
spread peanutbutter onto both graham crackers (creating your “glue”)
place the straw and top with another cracker
let set and finish making the others
melt the chocolates
Dip into white chocolate set onto wax paper (hold by the base of the cracker for most support)
dip into sprinkles
How sweet would these be on the kiddos table this year?!?
Fun with food:) Awesome:)
Fall travel is right around the corner….here is a great tool to keep the cars neat:)
Our cars often times are like our home on wheels…we are constantly going somewhere….and making that space “work” as efficiently and as neat as possible is always a plus. I think the back envelope area of your car seat is thee best way to help keep your car tidy. Every member of my family have benefited from these snack trays. They are an inexpensive way to keep food on laps….easy to make…a snitch to clean…AND they fit in the seatback…win win!
So here is how you go about making a couple of cute snack trays for your car:) You will need:
2 dollar store cookie sheets
1 large plastic shopping bag (mine is from TJ Maxx)
some heavy books
This is how we do it: (are you singing now? like MC Hammer? just me? carry on…..)
cut the bag so that you have 2 pieces of plastic
trace the cookie sheet on the wrong side of the plastic
cut it out
place glue along inside edge of cookie sheet
place one plastic sheet on and press firmly
set heavy books on top till dry
Isn’t it cute how is matches my Puffs tissues:) Some days I just feel like I could rule the world;) Puffs sent me some fabulous travel tissues to place back in the seat too. I love that the container is “squishable” and water resistant. Very user friendly packaging…and not bad to look at either:) I’m so fancy like that…:) Be sure to look up Puffs on Facebook and share how SoftPack’s could fit into your life:)
