The Preschool Birthday Treats
Okay, really this was an annual preschool trip/ But Peelu preferred to think that it was all for her birthday. She was with all her preschool buddies It was our turn to bring the snack anyway. So we incorporated some Spring fun and Peelu, of course, had to help me make EVERYTHING.
First we painted some glitter glue on wooden clothespins to make a cute butterfly treat.
After they dried we glued on googly eyes and cut pipe cleaners into 2 inch lengths.
Then we put together a fabulous trail mix of all Peelu's favorites....and we stuffed little snack bags about 2/3 full. Then we gathered the bags in the middle and clipped on the clothespin and the "bent" pipe cleaner antennae.
Aren't they ridiculously cute? I am pretty sure I found the idea in magazine. Oh, and also for snack I made little mini "dirt pudding cups". Basically pudding on the bottom of the dixie cup, crushed chocolate cookies on top with candy rocks and gummy frogs or gummy worms sticking out.
Peelu also wanted to give a party favor, so we got bottles of bubbles for her to hand out too.
I love sweet and inexpensive ways to make birthdays special for the little ones.
Wife to a VERY understanding man (even if he does roll his eyes and duck back into his garage way too much); mother to three maniacs,crafter, professional volunteer, crazed maniac in her own right...yep, that about covers it for now.
It's about crafts, family, gardening, life....really whatever the heck I want to talk about. I am wordy, messy, opinionated, disorganized, lacking in focus, manic, craft obsessed...and pretty much this all spills out on the pages of this blog. You've been warned!
