St. Patrick’s Day Fun: Edible Crafts

St. Patrick’s Day is a fun day for all kids, you do not even need to be Irish. You can enjoy the fun of the holiday with a little it of crafts and a little bit of snacks. All you need is some cereal, some marshmallows, and a little leprechaun to help you out.

Thank you to Jonesing to Create for such a fun idea. This little rainbow cloud craft is not only simple and fun, it can also be quite delicious as well. After all, who doesn’t love a craft that you can eat when you are finished? Isn’t that why Gingerbread houses are so popular at Christmas time? Think of these sweet little rainbow clouds as the Irish version of a gingerbread house.

The tutorial is very simple, which makes this an excellent craft for kids of any age. It can even be great for toddlers, and will help them with their fine motor skills since they will need to thread cereal to make it work.

We love this craft because the kids enjoy making things, and we all enjoy looking at their creations. But things can get crowded around here with so many art projects. This art project is great because we build it, we take a couple of pictures and enjoy it, then we eat it! No clean up required! Those are my favorite kinds of crafts!

Head on over to Jonesing to Create for the full tutorial and some other fun ideas that will last all year long.

Simple dinners: Sliders!

Baseball season is in full swing here at my house. This means late nights and long days. We rush home three nights a week in an attempt to feed and get kids ready for bed and ready for school the next day. I like to try and keep dinners simple and fast on those nights, and if possible I prep them the day before. That way we can come home, toss them in the oven or microwave and eat.

I try to keep a list of great meals on hand that the kids love. This one fell into my lap a couple of weeks ago, and it was a HUGE hit. We love burgers, but the kids are young and can’t always eat a whole one alone, and I hate to go out and grill on these already busy nights. This recipe allows me to bake everything fairly quickly, and it freezes well.
