Toilet Paper Snowmen

Well we managed to get one more winter craft in after all, I thought the marshmallow snowmen would be the last. 

These are toilet paper rolls - painted white. Other materials googly eyes, scrap paper, sequins, scrap ribbon, pipe cleaner, pom poms. The base it is sitting on is a paper plate with glued on shredded cotton balls. 

Marshmallow Snowmen

We had a bag of open marshmallows that were getting hard. So I broke them out and let Z and her cousin make snowmen, especially since its calling for snow and this is probably the last winter/snow craft we will be able to get in. 
I used school glue and made 3 circles, they put the marshmallows on. They used markers for the other features. The snow is white paint. Snow flakes are thumbprints. We sprinkled a little glitter on for some sparkle :)

Princess Day!

In honor of Sofia the First series premiere, we are having a Princess Day! - I spent nothing (this is all stuff I had here... okay so it cost me some sleep... but we won't talk about that)

The whole set up.
Real tea set, white lights, coloring pages, nail stuff, and a pretty glittered banner.

Valentine's Counter

I had some leftover poster and some leftover blackboard paint. So I threw them together and came out with this. This will be posted where she can reach it and we will change the number everyday. This is good for 3 things... I am all about multi-tasking, LOL. 
1. Decoration
2. Will make her think about numbers
3. Fine motor skills... writing the numbers everyday

Scrap red poster, small block of chalkboard paint, black sharpie, and red glitter glue. 


Mimosa Cupcakes

Cake: *some people prefer all purpose, I do not. So I used self rising. They still turned out wonderful* I also left out the vanilla extract. THIS RECIPE MAKES 28 CUPCAKES!!!

2 3/4 cup self rising flour
3/4 shortening or butter
1 2/3 cup sugar
5 egg whites
3/4 cup ginger ale or champagne (I used ginger ale, champagne is gross lol)
1/2 cup orange juice
1 tsp orange zest

1.preheat oven to 350. Beat shortening, sugar, and eggs together. 
2. mix ginger ale and orange juice. Alternating between flour and ginger ale mixture gradually add them to batter. 
3. add to muffin cups 2/3 of the way full. bake for 18-20 mins. (mine were done at exactly 18)

6 cups of powdered sugar
1/2 cup butter or margarine (margarine tasted just fine)
3 tbsp of ginger ale or champagne
2 tbsp of orange juice 

1. mix everything together. If too stiff add some extra orange juice one tbsp at a time until you get it the way you want. 
2. I used the star tip and piped starting from the outside in a swirl. Then added clear sugar sprinkles and small sugar pearls.
