Marshmallow Snowman S'mores

Fun in the snow is a staple around here and hot cocoa and a gooey treat are a great way to warm up afterwards. Earlier this winter, with holiday and winter treats gracing blogs and magazine pages everywhere, I was reminded of this fun Marshmallow Snowman I first put together last year last year. 

I shared the how-to over on The Shabby Creek Cottage last month. Make your own today. He’s guaranteed to leave you wanting s’more!

Surprise the kids with these adorable Snowman S'mores. What a fun snow day treat!

Keep the simple ingredients for these Marshmallow Snowman S'mores on hand for a special “snow day” activity or after school snack.

Make It: Miniature Winter Hat Yarn Craft

Christmas ornaments are one of my favorite crafts, and this winter-themed one is no exception. Years ago I made a version of these little winter hat ornaments at a class party. With a few changes, I shared this updated version on Landeelu last month. In case you missed it in the "busy-ness" of the holiday season, I'm sharing it here today.

Make adorable winter hats to adorn the tree or string on a garland.

Whether hung on the Christmas tree, topping a package, or strung together to make a winter garland, these miniature winter hats are an easy and inexpensive craft project for the whole family.

Easy Christmas Kids Craft: Paint Marbled Ornaments and Garland

Over the years we have amassed quite a collection of Christmas ornaments for our tree. It's a really good thing we have a tall one! Some of my favorites were made by my children years ago. Making ornaments together is a fun family activity, and children love seeing their creations hung on the tree. Keep the project simple so you have plenty of time to sit back and enjoy the fun!

Need an idea? Try this fun Christmas Kids Craft I shared on The Shabby Creek Cottage last month. These colorful paint-marbled ornaments and garland make a great family-friendly Christmas craft project and only require a few supplies which you might already have on hand!

For these simple paper ornaments and matching garland you only need a few supplies and some drying time.

Print It: Merry "KISS-MAS" Rudolph EOS Printable

With the Holidays fast-approaching, I often find myself in need of a small last-minute gift. Inspired by the You’re the Bomb Valentine I shared in February, I grabbed my iPad and stylus and put together an EOS lip balm printable card featuring my version of Rudolph.  I shared this fun stocking stuffer idea over on Landeelu last month, but here it is again just in case you missed it:)

In addition to making great stocking stuffers as is, these EOS printable cards would make super cute Secret Santa gifts or party favors when wrapped in clear cellophane bags and tied with red bows.

Make It: Mini Mason Jar Ornament

Some of my favorite holiday crafts are tree ornaments. I don't know if I've ever made it through a Christmas season without making at least one! Last year I shared this easy snow globe jar ornament tutorial on Landeelu.com.

Mason jar snow globes are everywhere right now. I’m sure you’ve seen them, big small, all shapes and sizes! Well, I can’t seem to get enough of them, so when I saw inexpensive mini mason spice jars when I was shopping at Target, I just had to put together an ornament version.

Here’s what you need to make your own:
  • Mini Mason Jar with handle (I found mine at Target. They’re about 3 1/4″ high.)
  • Assorted Miniatures to fit your jar (Check your local craft store.)
  • White Tile Adhesive
  • Faux Snow (optional)
  • Ribbon for hanging
  • Jingle Bells & Bakers Twine
