Ok so school is almost out and I’m desperately searching for things to keep the kids busy. If they aren’t on the beach or playground they are at home making slime or wanting to bake and that can get hard on a mom that works from home and can’t be supervising every second.
With the coming of the 4th of July Holiday, I’ve come up with a few dessert crafts that they can basically prepare themselves without too much supervision. Hopefully they will get out their yearning to create and “no-bake” at the same time.
Who doesn’t love Jello?! It’s refreshing and you can make it in any color to match any holiday or theme! What could be better? There are fun jello molds or you can just make it in your child’s favorite cup. It’s a whatever works dish, my favorite.
We did red and blue jello and of course white whipped cream or my fave, Cool Whip!
No-Bake Ice Cream Cake
My kids love to poor, stir, decorate and then of course eat. This cake provides all of that.
All you need is a graham cracker or our favorite oreo pie shell, some ice cream and of course the fixins for the top. I chose blueberries and strawberries because they love both and of course healthier then candy or sprinkles so a win for all of us!
Marshmallow Ballerina Sticks
These are my new fave! I love making things with marshmallows, but I don’t have the time to melt chocolate to make the sprinkles stick. So why not use Fluff? Helloooo!
Put your marshmallow on a stick dip it in Fluff then in your Red, White and Blue sprinkles and Voila. We added a small cupcake wrapper on the bottom to make little ballerinas and the kids were entertained for an hour. The cutest, yummiest dessert!
So get your little ones involved or let them do it on their own. It’s easy, fun and helps them create desserts without actually baking.
Have you been hesitant to try making slime with your kids? When you think of slime do you think of the gooey green stuff on Nickelodeon that they used to dump on the kids. That’s what I used to think whenever my daughter asked to make it and I was like no way no how. She finally convinced me after watching videos and hearing about it non stop. Read more
What could be more grueling than a child who goes off to school kicking and screaming?
Each morning you’re alarm clock goes off bright and early and you mosey on over to the coffee pot turn it on and just stare. You are wondering “what is today going to bring”? Is my child going to get out of bed and go to school without crying and begging to stay home? A million and one things go through your head. Should I let her stay home? What if something is happening at school that she isn’t telling me? For us it isn’t one particular thing, it is anxiety. Read more
Deciding to blog and put your writing out there for the world to see can be extremely nerve wracking. I was excited and scared at the same time. The internet has become a place for people to share their experiences just for the joy of sharing or to make money. It’s truly amazing! Read more
The holidays are a very big thing in our house. I start shopping in September. While my daughter is planning her Halloween costume, I am planning my Christmas shopping list. This year is very easy since I know what she wants, but super expensive from the looks of her list. Read more
So here we are in November already, Halloween has come and gone and Thanksgiving is literally around the corner, but what is on my brain…Christmas. I love Christmas so much. I love the decorations, the music, the parties, you name it. Then there is the dreaded word….GIFTS!! Read more
I have struggled with PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome), since the 8th grade. PCOS is a hormonal imbalance that causes ovarian cysts that can lead to infertility. However, I was just labeled as “irregular” or having Amenorrhea, it wasn’t given a name. In my opinion as a middle school student it was the worst thing any girl could go through. From the acne to always having my period, it was awful, and I pray my daughter never has to go through what I did. Read more
So I have to share with you my new favorite place to shop! I’m always looking for great deals and probably waste gas driving to multiple stores for the best price on food and household essentials. This can get quite exhausting to say the least. My favorite stores for great deals are Costco, Target and now my new favorite is Aldi. Read more
Since I’ve had my kids, I’ve slowly neglected myself more and more each year. I used to work for a huge makeup company and got tons of makeup for free. I never had to worry about which foundation to buy or which mascara or eyeliner. Read more
So I have to let you know that I love chicken, but cannot cook it to save my life. I’m always afraid of under cooking and it always comes out rubbery no matter what I do. Read more
