Pilgrim Hat Cookies!


When I saw these cookies I gasped, my husband thought I was watching the Twilight trailer again ( come on admit you are excited!) but these little gems were exactly what I was looking for. I doubt the austere pilgrims would indulge in such decadent cookies but I am glad we get to! Jessica over at The Entertaining Kitchen is full of wonderful ideas! Pop over there and check it out, I am in awe!

Incredible
Ice Bergs!

Last week when I was updating my blog roll I came across this awesome idea for some homemade bath toys! Bath time won’t be a struggle if your little one has a cool ice berg with a toy frozen inside. This is a great lesson about water, temperature and weather too, perfect as winter approaches.

Candy Corn!


This idea came from one of our readers Carrie who did this adorable craft with her young daughter , she sent it to me and I knew I wanted to save it for Halloween week! It’s so easy and the results are so cute! I’ll be making this with my little man today!

  1. Gather your materials. You will need 5 pieces of paper in light orange , white, yellow, darker orange and black , glue and a marker.
  2. I cut out the shape of candy corn on a light orange piece of paper and drew the 3 lines of candy corn.
  3. I tore up a bunch of pieces of white, yellow and orange paper
  4. Then she helped me sort them and put them where they go on the candy corn (yellow on the bottom, orange in the middle, white on the top). Since she’s younger (20 months) I had them mostly sorted for her and she could glue them on but for older kids you could just mix them all together.
  5. Voila a cute and easy Halloween Treat!

This activity could be finished up with counting a few pieces of candy corn— and then eating it!

Thank you so much Carrie for this awesome craft!
