Well, thanks to my SIL for suggesting Friday Flashback.... here is a flashback of my week. Since I'm always on the look out for crafts. I got this stringing project idea from another blog (sorry forgot where) and tweaked into a Christmas craft. It was super easy and the kids really enjoyed it. I cut out a cereal box in the shape of a ginger bread man and had the kids sponge paint them. I made small cuts on the sides (about 5) for the kids to string the yarn back and fourth between. The kids added some buttons for the eyes and a few other details.
I made the coolest little gifts for classmates and friends, Marshmallow Men!
I was blog hoping and found this
wonderful idea on Speckled Egg. It was really easy. I used some white chocolate and warmed it to the directions and then dipped the marshmallows. I then added the m&m's. My kids loved handing them out at school. We already need to make another batch. The other thing we made this week was Cinnomon-Sugar Chocolate Covered Pretzels. I found this through another great blog Your Homebased Mom.I bagged some of these up and gave them out to our neighbors and friends. It was also a great to bring to our last minute rsvp caroling get together. The kids loved caroling almost as much as the adults. I think we had about 40 people gathered for some fa la la laing. The best part of the night was when a genteman came to the door saying..."How did you know this was exactly what I needed tonight." Makes you kinda wonder why. I hope all is well for this sweet man. The week was wonderfully busy and we ended it with pajama day for my dc/preschool kids. We danced to some Christmas music and opened gifts. Gosh, I love those kids! Buckle up its weekend time!
