My bookmark folder is overflowing (thanks to Pinterest), so I thought I would do a little bit of early Spring cleaning and share some of the neat Christmassy ideas I’ve found.
Blow Frozen Bubbles – we haven’t tried this one yet, (although we’ve had ample opportunity) but it seems like a neat way to keep the kids busy on a cold day outdoors.
As long as the temperature is below zero, the bubbles will freeze and shatter when they fall to the ground!
Make a puffy snowman: Use equal parts white glue and shaving cream.
Easy outdoor (or indoor) Christmas tree: Wrap wire tomato cages in lights, flip upside down – voila!
A different type of wreath for your door: An old picture frame (painted to your liking) ribbon for a bow and a few Christmas decorations! Easy peasy!
Here’s an easy popsicle stick craft for your door – simple and pretty!
Here’s a neat way to make snowflakes – dip the end of an evergreen branch in white paint!
A great recipe for Christmas morning: North Pole Strawberry Smoothie
1 package (10 oz) frozen strawberries in syrup, partially thawed and undrained
1/4 cup water
2 cups vanilla frozen yogurt
2 tablespoons vanilla reduced-fat yogurt
1 strawberry-flavored or peppermint candy cane, finely crushed
Green decorating gel
1. Place strawberries and water in blender. Cover and blend on medium-high speed until slushy. Blend on medium speed until smooth. Transfer to 2-cup measure.
2. Wash and dry blender. Place frozen yogurt and reduced-fat yogurt in blender. Cover and blend on medium speed until smooth.
3. Place crushed candy cane on small plate. Pipe decorating gel around rim of two 12-ounce glasses. Dip rims into crushed candy.
4. Carefully pour yogurt mixture and strawberries at the same time into glasses, creating a half-and-half design. Serve with large drinking straws if desired.
