Reindeer Pancake Breakfast

24 Dec

This is the breakfast my two little girls had this morning, the morning of Christmas Eve!

We used pancakes for the reindeer’s head, bacon for the antlers, egg whites and mini MnMs for the eyes and a raspberry for the nose.  I can not take credit for this idea though, it was found on this cute blog called Kitchen Fun with My 3 Sons.

Merry Christmas to all of you who celebrate it!


Home Made Stocking Stuffer Idea

21 Dec

My four year old LOVES to wrap and give gifts, so when she wanted to make something for her (almost) two year old sister, we came up with a simple idea.  I originally saw this on Pinterest.

If you want to do this as a surprise for your kids’ stocking stuffers you can make them a lot fancier than my daughter did 🙂

All you need are a few pipe cleaners, some plastic cups, glue, ribbon and a magnet.

Cut up the pipe cleaners into small bits and drop into one plastic cup.

Glue the other cup on top and seal with ribbon.

Use a SIZE/AGE appropriate magnet to manoeuvre the pipe cleaners around the edges of the cups.

Great for home made stocking stuffers, or for a quiet game in the car!
**** Be sure to use AGE and SIZE appropriate magnets for your children, as many fridge magnets can be a choking hazard. ****
