Around here we like to make our Valentines a little custom. While we like the generic ones that are out there, we like making our a little unique. This is what we did this year:
We found images that we liked of Darth Vader and Yoda and printed them onto photo paper, I could have used card stock too but I like the photo paper better. Now, I would have liked Yoda to have a green pixie stick (and I know I saw them somewhere) but after 5 stores looking for them, I gave up! Instead we used a green sour straw and I like it better than the pixie stick. I tried to convince my son to use a red sour straw too but he was having no parts of it. Apparently, he likes the pixie sticks better. In the end, he was thrilled with how they came out and I was too!
I bought the molds I used a few months ago for his Star Wars birthday I am planning and I LOVE them!!
Can you believe Thanksgiving is here!!?? I can’t…I don’t know where this last year has gone but I do know this is my favorite time of year. One of our Thanksgiving traditions has been making a “popcorn turkey”. I’ve made one of these for the past few years for our Thanksgiving night snack. We usually go to my family’s for Thanksgiving and our dinner is more like a lunch since we eat early in the afternoon. Once we get home and settled in, we relax and watch movies as a family. Instead of throwing popcorn in a bowl, I throw it in turkey. Then, as we watch our movies, we carve into our turkey!
It’s really easy to make and almost too cute to eat! All you need is popcorn (a lot), a supermarket brown bag (new), 2 brown lunch bags some white paper and that’s it! You flip the large bag inside out, fill with popcorn, fill the smaller bags with popcorn and attached them to the large bag like drumsticks and that’s it.
I’ve even made these for school to send in for a class Thanksgiving treat!
