I have never done anything different or special for St. Patrick's Day, mainly because I did not know what to do. The kids on the other hand have lots of ideas as to what can be done.
Last year they made a Leprachaun trap.
Today in the morning I had an idea of making rainbow pancakes for breakfast and my kids loved it.
Oh, I love churros. But had never tried making it before this past weekend. I never knew it was so easy to make, till I came across the recipe.
This past weekend, I thought I will give it a try and boy, am I glad I made it. Its so easy to make that now, I can make it anytime I feel like having them and not wait to get from those stores in the mall or the park..;).
Here's another idea for valentine. These were few of the cards I made for some special friends to remind of their love and kindness. Valentine was time to celebrate every kind of love and that's what I tried by passing these sweet cards.
Wanted to share what my daughter made for her valentine Box. First she wanted to make a dog with an open mouth to collect the valentine. So she wrapped the shoe box with brown paper. Then just a day before she had to take the box, she said she would like to make the unicorn instead. Oh well, we didn't have time and patience to wrap the box again with white paper, so we went with brown paper base. Though white paper would have looked great, this wasn't too bad, right?..;)
I have made the non-candy valentine, for the past few times for my kids to give it out to their classmates. I definitely prefer non-candy valentine. But this time my daughter wanted to give out chocolates. You can guess, she is a big chocolate lover...:) So I made these and I think these are cute - heart shaped chocolate to make the arrows.
Few days back we had a sleepover party. While deciding on the theme I went back and forth with different themes and for the longest time couldn't decide what to do. Finally I went with this Chevron theme. It came together pretty easily and turned out to be colorful and pretty, just the way I like it..:)
If you have been following my blog, you might have known how much I love working with paper. Before Christmas, we even did this craft at the Sunday school with the kids and they took these ornaments back home to decorate their tree..:)
It is so inexpensive and fun way to decorate and you can create many different designs. Now that I am thinking you can make a bunch and make a vertical garland with it to make a backdrop. Maybe I should make one to let you know what I mean in one of the posts...:)
These paper medallions are great for decorating and can even be used to top gifts. I have been making these paper medallions for a long time, accordion folding the paper and gluing the edges together, just like I mention in the tutorial here.
