I love decorating for the holidays. This year I decided to go with a red, green and white theme for my Christmas decorations. To see how I carried the theme to my outdoor Christmas decorations click here.
Today I am going to show you this cute snowman preschool craft. It's really easy to prepare and it helps your kids fine tune their motor skills, reiterate letters in their name and sparks their creativity as they decorate the snowman, You can use this craft as part of a snowman theme or on it's own.
5 Ingredient 5 Minute Peanut Butter Fudge
This 5 minute Peanut Butter Fudge is the perfect solution for your parties, as a gift and when you need a quick peanut butter fix! I have been making this fudge for years. I love it because it's one of those recipes that you can't really mess up.
The creamy texture and the balance of sweet and salty make this peanut butter fudge such a great choice. To add an extra level of delight you can add a sprinkling of rock salt on top. My kids can't get enough of it and I think you will see why when you make it!
Ok friends, I have been looking forward to writing this super cute and lighthearted post about decorating for Christmas. It's definitely one of my favorite activities and something I look forward to all year long. As I sat down to write that post, I just couldn't get into it. So, I knew it was time to write this post about anxiety during holidays instead.
Outdoor Christmas Decorations
One of the best ways to make your decorations really come together is to have a theme that transitions from outside to inside. This year I decided to have a bit of a whimsical theme and focused only on red, green and white. I will show you how I was able to make my outdoor Christmas decorations have a cohesive look and what I did to decorate my small porch space.
This no cook play dough recipe that I am sharing today is really simple to throw together and I always have the ingredients on hand. It's a great alternative to all the recipes that call for cream of tartar that you cook on the stove. If you do have cream of tartar and are looking for a cooked version you can check out this recipe.
My kids love play dough! Unfortunately I don't like the smell of the kind that you get at the store. Something they put in it makes me want to gag. For a long time I didn't let my kids play with play dough. Then one day I found this gingerbread play dough recipe and another no cook play dough recipe.
Growing up my mom didn't buy the chocolate Christmas countdown calendars that are displayed at almost every check stand at this time of year. (Does anyone else think it's weird when they sell those at the tire store or a hardware store?) Instead, we got to make our very own Hershey kiss countdown. Of course we always used the Christmas colored kisses to make our individualized chocolate countdown.
The Best Wheat and White Flour Rolls
If you are reading this, I am going to assume that you or someone you love, really enjoys homemade rolls. Making rolls definitely takes some love and care and too many times over the years I have been disappointed by the end result. This recipe that I am sharing today has been passed down a few generations on my husbands' side of the family. He loves these rolls and really they are a bit of perfection. I changed the recipe a little by making them wheat and white flour rolls instead of all white flour.
