Candy Cane Lane

So cute. I adore hand, foot, thumb print art. It makes me so happy to dip my little girls hands in paint to make a cute creations. They are getting older and so daring to take the steps for themselves. We made these cute little candy canes in like thirty minutes.

All you need is red and white paint, construction paper, green ribbon.

I drew an outline of a candy cane for my girls to follow. I squeezed the paint into two blob and let my three-year-old trace the line with alternating red and white thumb prints. She did really well! It got a little mixed at the end, but I attribute that to her excitement for art. My little one year old needed a little more help ;)!

Easy Peasy Christmas Pleasy

I know I'm not the only one who gets super stressed out at Christmas time. So I'm always on the look out for quick little crafts that can curb the stress level. These little snowflakes were so easy to throw together.

All you need are big craft sticks, hot glue and gun, and paint. That's it! Just glue these suckers together in a pretty little pattern and you've got yourself winter holiday decorations. They are super cute. I even considered adding some bling, but decided against it this time around. Maybe later.

Let it Snow Charger

Dollar store find! I purchased these awesome red chargers and pack of six snowflakes at the dollar store. I happened to have a gold Sharpie on hand, which I used to scroll the words, "Let it Snow" on the top of the Charger. Then I glued the snowflake to the center of the plate. Done and done! Ready to give to my friends.
