Hey, everyone!

In keeping with the spirit of homemade decorations and gifts this year, I wanted to share with you today’s craft that we will be working on with our Little Monkey… pipe cleaner snowflakes. We have a ton of pipe cleaners in our craft area and they are in all sorts of colors, so this is just what the MomMom ordered… FREE! ūüėČ

String them to hang around the house or on your tree! This year, we hung ornaments in the windows, so I’m excited to make these and add them to the display…

Click HERE for the tutorial… hope you and your family have a fun time making this inexpensive craft! Thank you to It’s Written on the Wall¬†for posting this craft.

Hey, everyone!

Most people¬†think that blowing bubbles is an activity only for¬†sunny¬†& warm weather… oh, no, no, no. Not in this family, I tell you! We MomMom wears flip flops in Virginia winter weather, so it’s only appropriate that I would mix & mash the seasons that I choose to do activities, right?

Today’s weather: 55 degrees, cool, and windy. Little Monkey wanted to blow bubbles outside and the store bought mix on our shelf had sketchy stuff floating around the bottom. So I had to find a homemade recipe with exact measurements for each ingredient STAT (with things that I already have in my home, of course!)… and wah-lah!!!

Ingredients:

    • 1/2 cup of dishwashing liquid
    • 2 cups of water
    • 2 teaspoons of sugar
    • Optional:¬†a drop or so of food coloring for a colorful kick to your bubbles

I mixed everything up in a large mason jar to store and then put part of it in a toddler-friendly plastic bottle. It was a great activity that I needed just to get us outside for some exercise today.

Hope you’re enjoying your day as well!
