The quiet beauty of winter. The snow so magically falls, the everyday hustle and bustle comes to a slippery halt, the children are busy making snowmen and sledding down the hills, and.... school is closed! With the children home from school (due to a snow storm or mid-winter vacation) here's a winter themed activity that will entertain your children while bringing this beautiful scene indoors (without the wet boots and gloves!).
Fishing for something exciting to do with the children this weekend? Take out the mixer and have some family fun making this adorable cupcake! This cupcake is easy for kids to decorate on their own and they will be so proud of their edible creation when they are done. (Don’t want to heat up the house with turning on the oven? Many bakeries sell plain cupcakes that would be perfect for this project).
Gone are the days where teaching your kids to how to cook consists of pointers on how to boil macaroni and making rice crispy treats. Leah Schapira and Victoria Dwek are changing the way our kids cook with their newest cookbook just for kids! I recently got Kids Cooking Made Easy and I think it’s a masterpiece.
As we are surrounded by fall’s beautiful foliage outside, how about bringing some color, creativity and fun indoors as well. Perfect for a long Sunday afternoon - you wont be”leaf” how much your children will enjoy creating these “tree”ts.
Here is a cute new twist for Simchat Torah bags. Simply tape a Laffy Taffy rope to a snack bag.With little effort and low cost, you can sit back and enjoy those cute faces wave their candy as they dance around the Torah.
