Bebe and Mommy’s Landmark

Daddy is painting a new window trim.  Guess what?  Bebe and Mommy decided to sneak a bit of paint and get crafty!  Yes, We now have our very own Landmark at home!  Daddy even gave us compliments and extra paint to finish off our project!  The best part it was easy and peacy!

There is nothing like having your own Landmark!

All you need is a heart stencil, which is very easy to make. Fold a piece of paper in half, trace half of a heart, cut it, tape it to the floor and paint over it!  Wallah your done!

Lifetime Memories

Fruit Loop Bird Feeder

Valentine’s Day is around the corner, Bebe and I decided to make colorful Heart Bird Feeders.  After all we can snack and craft at the same time.  It’s all about making memories.  We had a blast towards the end.  It was more like a Fruit Loop confetti party!  There was Fruit Loops all over the place.  Bebe was so excited the joy on her face was priceless!  We definitely made lifetime memories.

It was so simple and easy!  Grab a Chenille Stem and Fruit Loops.

Start by forming the heart first.

String the Fruit Loops onto the Chenille Stem.

Once the cereal is strung, bring the bottom together and twist.

Lastly add string or twine to hang the bird feeder.

Enjoy!

How to make your own Play Dough

Who doesn’t love playing with Play Dough?  We do!!!!  After numerous times going shopping for play dough AKA: Play-Doh we decided to learn how to make our own.  It was fun, cheap and easy. The best part is non-toxic!  Bebe and I had so much fun making play dough we spent most of the evening creating different color batches.

Ingredients:

1 Cup of Flour

1 Cup of Warm Water

1/3 Cup of Salt

2 Tsp Cream of Tartar

Liquid Food Color -A few drops to achieve your color desired

Step 1:

Combine all the ingredients in a pot.
Cook over medium to low heat, stirring pretty constantly for about 5-8 minutes until it all sticks together and starts looking like play-doh. Form a ball and remove it from the pot.
Let the mixture cool off by placing it on wax paper.

Step 3: Play & Store

Play with your play-dough and store it in an air-tight container or ziplock bag. We used ziplock bags with no complaints. It will keep it from getting dry.  You will enjoy your play-dough for months!
