We made rice crispy wands. Again so easy I make these for every holiday they are so versatile.

I buy the premade rice crispy treats at costco they come in a box of 52 I believe. Unwrap them dip them in candy melts (I buy from Michaels -follow bag directions) and then before candy melt hardens sprinkle with themed candy sprinkles. Buy some lollipop sticks and dip tyhem in the candy melts as well before sticking them inside the rice crispy treat and they will hold nicely.

What did you make for the holidays?

A Messy Party

Mikey wanted a messy slime party so I did what I could to create it for him. Above is Mikey’s Sukkah you can go here to learn more about it.

Here is a link to the templates I used for the disguises on A Mom with a Lesson Plan

I made a mud pit using Grow Dirt we hid GIANT bugs inside

the kids could sit inside and enjoy the mud and dig out GIANT bugs

There was splat painting visit HERE to see more splat painting and to see the materials used to create it

We also had spray painting visit HERE to see materials used and how to create this.

I added PVC pipes cut at various lengths with connectors and funnels for the kids to tinker with and create water ways

Our Water wall was also up and running it was a ton of fun for all the kids. Visit here to see how I made the water wall and to see more pictures.

And of course our KID WASH to get everyone clean after getting messy visit the Kid Wash Link to see how we made this awesome contraption and to see a bunch more pictures of it.

A Tent and some Disguises

I wanted a lounge area for Mikey’s party for when the kids just needed to take a bit of a break. So I created Mikey’s Sukkah.

It was so easy to create. The front is actually a supermarket Jose Cuervo display. the supermarket was taking it down so naturally I asked if I could have it. It became the front of the sukkah.

the kids loved it. I hung white sheets to create the outside frame and a small curtain rod to create the curtain in the front. Outside I had a basket of disguises which also became a huge hit at the party. They were actually a last minute decision I had some craft foam and a ton of chopsticks so I thought what can I do with these. I made them the night before on a whim and I am so glad I did!

Birthday Maze

Mikey is 3!!! He loves Spiderman so I made him a Birthday Maze to wake up to he had to make his way through it to get to his presents in the morning.

It was super simple just painters tape and some balloons. Mikey and Kaia both loved it and wanted it to stay up forever!
