Last year my sister-in-law bought these treats from a Harvest Festival and this year
we decided to make a craft-playdate with the kiddos.
Things you need:
Brownie mix (follow recipe)
White yogurt covered pretzels
Food markers (we bought ours at Michael’s)
Cut brownies in square.
Place the lollipop stick in the middle of brownie to hold together the skeleton.
Use the white yogurt pretzels as the skeleton bones.
Place the marshmallow on top for the head.
Use the food markers to make the face of the skeleton.
Walk-ins welcome, the only catch… you have to make your own pizza! We had our little friends over making their own dinner and keeping those little fingers busy.
We bought the dough and sauce from our local Italian market, Angelo’s in Belmont Shore, but Trader Joe’s carries pizza dough for about $3 as well as Pizza Sauce. For the cheese we used cheese sticks (kid Friendly) and easy to use.
The pizza turned out great, and the kids ate every single piece!
1. Set oven to 450
2. Split the dough in 3 pieces
3. Using flour, start making a round shape with the dough
4. After you made a round shape for your pizza add the sauce and cheese.
5. Put in the oven for about 12 minutes and serve.
I’ve been looking for ideas to entertain my toddler on the plane and knowing she is really interested in writing and spelling. I think this will be perfect…
Things you need:
Cookie sheet, painters tape, Chalkboard spray paint for the cookie sheet, Magnetic letters and spray paint for the letters.
1.Tape around the area of the cookie sheet you want to paint . Once that is ready, spray paint with Chalkboard paint.
You might need to spray paint a couple of times and let it dry.
2. Place the letter facing up and spray paint with your favorite color. After they dry, rotate them and spray them again.
You might need to repeat this a couple of times till the letters are covered with paint.
Now let the Spelling Bee begin.

I’m always looking for projects to do with my kids.These Tin-Can Stilts are easy to make with materials you already have at home. Hope you enjoy them as much as my daughter does, the only draw back is they might be a little noisy if they are playing inside the house. Otherwise they are super fun!
To make make one pair of stilts you need:
2 tin cans
rope, twine or string
paint ( I used paint my daughter already had)
medium or large nail
1. Remove label from cans. Wash with warm water and dry.
2. Decorate the cans with paint and let it dry.
3. Turn cans over (bottoms side up)
4. Using the hammer and nail, punch two holes in the can.
5. Use twine or string and push it through the holes in your can. Pull string through the inside
of the can and push it out through the other hole. Make sure you make a knot in each end of string.
Now stand on the stilt and pull the string tightly as you walk.
