make it monday: father’s day crafts

Standard

Happy Monday!

So I decided to change it up a bit and in stead of posting in bulk, I will be posting by weekly theme:

Make it Monday (anything craft related)

Taste it Tuesday (food!)

Wear it Wednesday (fashionable momma and kiddo)

Tiddy it Thursday (organizing and cleaning tips)

Feature it Friday (showcasing my favorite blogs, tips, anything goes!)

Any feedback would be great!

MY “PINTERESTING” TAKE:

The girls loved putting this together

  • Project: day 128: get crafty/ simple easter or spring table decor/flower arrangement with gerber daisies, peeps, and jelly beans!
  • Difficulty rating (1=easiest, 5= way too hard!): 1. This one was super easy!
  • Would I do it again? yes, you all know I love the glass within a glass trick. It’s so fun to stick fun little festive decorations on the outer glass and not ahve to worry about the flowers dying too soon!
  • What I would do differently: change it up for each holiday, which I have been doing so far!
  • Items used: peeps, jelly beans, gerber daisies, small vase on the inside with water, and a larger outer vase to hold all of the “goodies!”

Until ipinterest tomorrow!

  • Project: day 22: crafty kiddos/ homemade Christmas peppermint playdoh, holiday mason jar packaging
  • Difficulty rating (1=easiest, 5= way too hard!): playdoh- 1, packaging 1 ok, maybe 2 since I had my brother-in-law, Gaelan, help cut the white label 😉
  • Would I do it again? yes, Morgan, our 2 year-old loves to play with playdoh!
  • What I would do differently: we thought we had peppermint extract, but when we went to add it to the dough mixture it was gone! Oh well, maybe next time it will smell yummy! Ours also seemed a bit too moist, not sure what went wrong 😦
  • Items used:
  • Peppermint Play Dough Recipe: * 2 Cups White Flour* Liquid Water Color or Food Coloring (as much as needed to get the color you want)* 1/2 Cup Salt* 3 Tablespoons Cream of Tartar (This was hard to find, I never saw it before. It was in the area with the salt and looks like baking powder.)* 2 Tablespoons of Vegetable Oil* 1 Tablespoon Peppermint Extract (Optional – but this is what makes it smell SO good!)Ready, set, make!1. Mix flour, salt and cream of tartar in a large bowl with a whisk.

    2. Add 2 cups of water and your coloring of choice to get desired color.

    3. Mix well with a wisk.

    4. Add vegetable oil and peppermint extract.

    5. Mix well with a wisk, then stir/smooth batter with a soft spoon or  spatula.

    6. Pour batter into a large skillet or electric pan and cook on medium heat while stirring constantly. Continue stirring and turning until play dough is cooked, thick, and no longer shiny. Don’t be afraid, the pan will clean easily. It cooked for me in about 5 – 7 minutes.

    7. Remove from heat and place on counter top. When it cools, knead it over and over until it is the consistency you like. Be careful, it will be HOT!
