Are you ringing in the New Year with your kiddos this year? We have made it a New Year’s Eve tradition to ring in the New Year with our kids and some family friends and their kids. I wanted to share what I did last year to make New Year’s Eve fun and exciting for the kids. They enjoyed it so much and can’t wait to see what is in store for them this year. Continue reading
We have a little tradition in our family that my kids look forward to each holiday. It has become known by my girls as a “special breakfast”. With Christmas around the corner I wanted to share the breakfast they woke up to last Christmas morning. For this breakfast, I chose a turquoise and red color scheme and used paper plates for easy clean-up (and because I don’t own red plates). I had some paper doilies on hand and used those as placemats. The breakfast itself is super easy to put together and super cute. All you need is a box of Entenmann’s Pop’ems powdered donuts (any brand will do, but that is what I used). Using three powdered donuts, stack them on top of one another on a plate to make a snowman. Chocolate chips were used to make the eyes, a slice of the end of a baby carrot became the nose, and a small tube of black frosting was used to draw a smile. For snow, I used shredded coconut. I sprinkled the plate with some blue sugar crystals to add a little sparkle. I always like to serve fruit with breakfast, so I made a candy cane out of sliced strawberries and bananas. Recycled Starbucks Frappuccino bottles make great milk bottles. I topped mine with another donut which I bedazzled with blue sugar crystals and stuck a striped paper straw through the hole. The kids absolutely loved this breakfast! They’ve already asked if I can make it again this year. We shall see…whatever I come up with this year, I can’t wait to see them smile on Christmas morning. Happy Holidays all!
