I really am convinced that
is published to remind us of how boring we are & how we need to step it up and do fun creative stuff with our kids
I always do & then my kids lose interest 1/2 way....is it me?
I stumbled on this article
I love projects
I always have so much free time that I can spend my leisure making things with them
then birds & flowers tied in ribbons will fly around us as we do them
This project came out super duper cute & now that I did it, i know how to make it easier....
I would assembly line it
Again thats a
BIG HUGE IF I DID IT AGAIN
But here is how i did it
for those who want to know
I apologize in advance for the crappy pics
I was too lazy to take my ass upstairs to get my camera
So we started with
chocolate animal crackers
orange mike & ikes
green gummy candy
So I beat the crap out of the animal crackers-
rolling pin in a ziplock was my method,
don't know if there is a better/easier way
Then we mashed in some chocolate frosting,
I didn't measure anything,
I kept adding frosting till it felt kinda like crumbly play dough
then my lovely assistants helped me sort out the orange mike & ikes
then start snipping the green gummy candies (rips)
I cut them in halfsies
then in quarteries
then snipped to make the stalks
then worked them into the snipped top of the carrot, really easy cause they are so pliable
You basically use the sugar wafers & frosting to make a rectangle shaped "flower box/planter"
So two are the long sides & 1 cut in 1/2 is the short side of the rectangle
the frosting is the glue to hold them all together
Lot's of work
I ended up doing most of it
So, Family Fun?
Not so much!
