Show Me Saturday #12

Welcome back to the Show Me Saturday link party!

Christmas is less than a week away! Can you believe it? Honestly, I'm getting anxious for our Christmas celebrations. My shopping is done and I'm ready to just enjoy some time and traditions with my family.

Reminder: We will not have Show Me Saturday next week. We will show case your features from this week at the next link party on January 3rd. I'm taking some time off for Christmas and hope you will too. Merry Christmas!

12 Christmas Kid Crafts {Round Up}

School will out for Christmas break soon. That last week before Christmas can seem like an eternity to kiddos who are anxious to see what Santa is going to bring them. So, to keep them busy, pass the time, and build some holiday excitement here are some kid-friendly Christmas crafts.

Earlier this week I posted about the Reindeer Cookies the kids and I made. They LOVED making all those little Rudolphs. And we also made some Homemade Frozen Silly Slime.

But if you need some more ideas, here are 12 Christmas Kid Crafts that look cute and would be great to try out!

Homemade Frozen Slime Guest Post

The girls and I made some fun Frozen inspired silly slime based on some Pins I've seen floating around. It was a ton of fun and now they are begging to make more in every color they can find.


I'm guest posting over at Made From Pinterest today, so you can find out how we made our slime there.

Rudolph Reindeer Cookies





Last night was our Children's Christmas Program at Church. The kids did a great job singing their Christmas Carols and afterwards we had a fellowship time with some fingers foods and snacks. I had already planned on making these Rudolph Reindeer Cookies, so this was the perfect excuse to do it. Everyone loved how cute they were! And the best part is that they are easy to make.

First begin by sorting out red MnMs. Try not to eat all the other colors -- try.


Then make your favorite peanut butter cookie recipe, or sugar cookie, or gingerbread - whatever you're in the mood for.

Roll the dough into balls and pinch one end.

And flatten. This gives the cookies a pretty reindeer face shape.


While the cookies are baking set up an assembly line of chocolate covered pretzels, mini chocolate chips and/or candy eyes, and red MnMs.


Once your cookies are finished baking and while they are still soft gently place two chocolate covered pretzels at the top of the cookie for antlers. Then press in an MnM for nose and either the mini chocolate chips or candy eyes for eyes. Be careful. If you press too hard the cookie will just come apart.


Hubs even got in the kitchen and helped make a few deer.


And you know we just had to cheat and eat a one each before the kids' program.

Show Me Saturday #11

Welcome back to the Show Me Saturday link party!

Exciting News! We have a new party co-host! Christina from Sweet Haute is joining us in our fab party. That means another blog showing off YOUR links and picking features each week! She will be commenting, pinning, and featuring you. So please take a minute to hop on over to her site and say hello.

Just to give you all a heads up, we will not be having Show Me Saturday the weekend after Christmas. We're enjoying all your lovely projects and can't wait to see them for the next few weeks to come, but also want to encourage you to take some time off and enjoy the season. Personally I will be either not posting at all or doing very limited, pre-scheduled posting during that time.

 Please follow each of the hostesses in some way.
