Hi. Before I start this post, I wanted to let you know that I am a Wife, Mother, Daughter, and Friend. I cannot begin to think about what families and friends in the Newtown, CT community must be going through. I want to, no, NEED to do something in some way for these families. A bunch of Mothers, Wives, Daughters, and Friends are joining together to honor those lost on December 14 at Sandy Hook Elementary School.
Please join us on Friday, December 21, 2012, as we honor the victims, families, and community of Newtown by doing a post in their honor. Cookies and Crafts for Sandy Hook will be one way we can show support in the aftermath of this unimaginable event.
As the week progresses, I'll be providing updates and information if you would like to join us. Also, Crazy for Crust has started a linky if you have an Etsy or business that would like to participate in a day of donations with us. Thanks so much.
That's my Little Cup and she loves decorating with me!
The other day we dressed up some Christmas Tree Peeps!
The trees were pretty sad looking.
So we decided that they needed better garlands and more ornaments.
Candy Melts and Pop Rocks to the rescue.
Just melt a small amount of candy and place it in a baggie with a snipped off corner for a makeshift piping bag. Make zig-zags across the trees and then sprinkle with Pop Rocks.
I was practicing with a parchment paper triangle (you know, since Duff Goldman taught me how). To lean how to do your own, check here.
The lollipop sticks are optional, but I've got to put everything on a stick. It's just more fun that way :)
To make the stars Sparkle and Bright, I used some yellow candy and sprinkled it with yellow sanding sugar.
So easy and so fun to do with your kid.
If the kids are old enough, this would be a fun activity for them to do on their days off from school.
You do need to eat it the same day. The Pop Rocks will melt if left open.
I don't think that the kids would leave Pop Rocks behind. Mine didn't.
Hug your loved ones and wish them a Merry Christmas. Share some laughter and love. And enjoy the time you have together.
I link up at THESE GREAT parties!
