Princess Marshmallow Pops (vegetarian)

Standard

I’m gearing up for my daughter’s bday party on Sunday and so have made a sweet treat for the guests.

Princess Marshmallow Pops

Dandies marshmallows (which are vegetarian no gelatin, and vegan)

Melting chocolate of your choice

Sprinkles or toppings

Small lollipop sticks

Small clear bags and ties

Melt the chocolate and dip each marshmallow and then top with sprinkles. Let them harden and push in stick and wrap with bag and tie.

I used a plastic container as the holder, I filled it with dry dal and the cut small x’s in the top.

I think the kids will love them.

Throwing snowballs game for kids party and fun

Standard

I’m the coordinator for all of my daughter’s school parties for this year and wanted to make a fun game for the kids to play. Since we are in winter what better than a snowball fight themed game?

I used a large piece of cardboard brought home from BJ’s and drew on three characters who would look like they are both throwing and being hit by snowballs. I used paints, crayons and markers to color in the picture and cut out three large holes. The kids will throw ping pong balls as their own snowballs and try to aim for the holes.

I think it will be fun!
Happy Holidays everyone.

How to make Monster High Or Barbie doll furniture, entertainment center

Standard

Continuing on with making furniture for my daughter’s Monster High dolls, I’ve made an entertainment center with a tv. This looks really wonderful and is so fun and easy to make.

What is needed:
Small box for however big you would like the center to be (for 1:6 scale I used a plastic utensil box)
Wood patterned self stick shelf liner (found mine at the dollar store)
Black construction paper
Glue and tape
Pictures cut out from ads of a tv and electronics
Scrap cardboard
Scissors

I started by cutting my box in half and then gluing down the open flaps and taping the two box pieces together so I created the size I wanted.

Next I covered the the front side of the boy with a rectangle of black construction paper, and the other sides with the wood patterned shelf liner.

I made little strips of the shelf liner to replicate shelves on the front and glued in the little pictures of electronics.

Lastly I created the tv using the picture cut out and gluing to cardboard back and using another rectangle of black construction paper to cover it and made a stand from a triangle of cardboard and bending it.

My daughter loves this and I think it came out cute as well.

Free fun kids project classes at Lowes Build and Grow

Standard

20120811-161702.jpg

Every other weekend or so Lowes offers a fabulous free clinic for kids to make a great project in store. We have been going for the past two years and just adore it. You go online to build and grow website and sign up for an upcoming clinic for your child or children to attend, don’t forget to print off the waiver and bring with you. The stores have limited numbers of the kits though and so when they fill up they won’t let you sign up anymore. The best time to sign up is when they release new project dates online, normally the same day they are having a clinic in store.

You get to keep your project and receive a certificate of achievement and patch to iron or sew onto the free apron they give you too! Simply lots of fun.
