Snow Day Activity Jar
By Laura Bray
When I was a little girl, growing up in Ohio, I loved snow days! My sisters, brother, and I would eagerly listen to the radio as we ate our breakfast, hoping to hear our school’s closure. Now, as a mother, I am guessing my mother didn’t quite feel the same way about snow days. Four kids, housebound? Not so much fun from that side of the story! This Snow Day Activity Jar might help ease the pain for all those moms out there. It’s easy to make, and I’ve included a printable of suggested activities, that will keep your children busy and quiet. At least for a minute or two.
Sparkling Winter Votive Holders
By Laura Bray
We are in the darkest time of the year. The days are short and the skies are often gray. Time to take add some sparkle into your home. These votive candle holders, with glitter and jewels, will add a little light to your day.
What does the hostess of a New Year’s Eve party need the most? Another bottle of wine? Probably not. But I bet she could use breakfast! Who wants to drag themselves out of bed after a very late-night party and make breakfast? No one, that’s who. This hostess gift is a snap to make and your hostess won’t forget your kindness. Simply paint and embellish a plain, wood box and fill it with some orange juice, croissants, and maybe a little split of champagne (hair of the dog, as they say). Your hostess need only stumble out of bed, find your thoughtful gift, and breakfast is served.
