Let it Snow! Let it Snow! Let it Snow! Shirts that is...

These are this year's Christmas shirts.  This is the first time that I have ever used iron on vinyl.  It was relatively easy to use.  I cut the images out with my Cricut machine and then placed it on the shirts and ironed them on.  The instructions said to have the iron on the highest setting and leave it on for 2-3 seconds.  I used the highest setting and left it on for more like 20-30 seconds.  I have had to go back a couple of times and iron it back down again and two of the shirts.  So I probably should have left the iron on it for just a little longer.  But I love how they turned out and the kids won't stop wearing them.

Spider craft

My kids LOVED making these and we have had them hanging from the ceiling of the toy room all fall.  I cut up an egg carton then I poked holes in each of the sides with a really sharp pencil (I didn't want huge holes).  I also threaded some string through the top of the "spider body" so we could hang them later.  I pulled out the pipe cleaners and let the kids have fun.  My two year old did great with it, he could stick the pipe cleaner through one side easily but needed a little help to get it through the second hole but he could then pull it the rest of the way through.  After they had legs I gave them a marker and they drew eyes on the spiders.

My son showing off one of his he made.

One of my daughter's spiders she thought it was fun to have their legs going all crazy.

Mini Chocolate Creme Pies

This was so easy and yet so much fun.  My husband and I were grocery shopping and found a 6pack of mini graham cracker crusts we immediately thought these would be fun as chocolate creme pies.  We made the filling by the directions on the chocolate pudding box, then added cool whip topping and mini chocolate chips for fun.  The kids thought these were so cool!!  They are the perfect size for you to just pull one out of the fridge and enjoy by yourself.
