I made three cards today out of a piece of green card stock paper. I hope you can use the ideas.
A baby pram card. I don't know anyone who is pregnant, but I'm sure I'll find someone to give this to eventually. :)
This Easter basket is a little late, but I saw a card similar to this one, and I had to try it out. You weave strips of paper together, and then glue them down to the basket outline. It was a lot of fun to make.
Harper came to me yesterday with this. She was super excited about it. She calls it her fireman helicopter. It's a birthday present for our mom. I was the one who had to break the news to her that mom's birthday is in December. It's April. :)
We gave Sydney a surprise Hunger Games birthday party. She loves the books, and completely adored the movie. I think she liked her party too. We had Katniss' plum stew, 13 different types of bread (one for each District), a Hunger Games war with bows and arrows and water guns, Hunger Games trivia, and a bonfire. It was a lot of fun.
For the trivia game, we got a large vase, and said it was the reaping jar. If you got the trivia question right, your name went into the jar. At the end, I drew a name, and that girl got a prize.
Sorry the cupcakes are sideways, but we found these cute pictures to print off and stick into the cupcakes. They all had cute sayings from the books.
Can you tell that I like to cook pasta? I made this for Sydney, but she didn't eat it. My mom loved it, though, so it was worth the effort.
1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
1 TBL olive oil
about 2-4 TBL chopped ham
4 grape tomatoes cut in half
1 button mushroom, chopped
1/4 cup mozzarella and Parmesan cheese
1 cup uncooked bow tie pasta
Cook the pasta like the box says. Put the olive oil in a pan. Saute the grape tomatoes, mushroom, and ham in the oil. Add the cream once the mushrooms start to brown, and keep stirring. Add the cheese. Stir until the cheese melts. Add the pasta and garlic salt. Stir up well, and serve.
I hope whoever you cook this for is more grateful than my sister. Maybe you should just cook it for yourself. :)
1 On the first day of the week, very early in the morning, the women took the spices they had prepared and went to the tomb. 2 They found the stone rolled away from the tomb, 3 but when they entered, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. 4 While they were wondering about this, suddenly two men in clothes that gleamed like lightning stood beside them. 5 In their fright the women bowed down with their faces to the ground, but the men said to them, “Why do you look for the living among the dead? 6 He is not here; he has risen! Remember how he told you, while he was still with you in Galilee: 7 ‘The Son of Man must be delivered over to the hands of sinners, be crucified and on the third day be raised again.’ ” 8 Then they remembered his words.
Here are a few simple crafts for Easter. They probably only took 20 minutes total.
What you need: white card stock paper, tape, pink crayon, headband
Cut out two long ear-shaped pieces of card stock paper. Color pink inside of them. Tape them onto the headband. It's super easy, and it only took a few minutes. We threw this together last minute. It would've probably looked better if we had a white headband, but Harp was pleased with it.
What you need: white construction paper, crayons
Cut out a bunny shape and color. (I told you these crafts were simple.) We sent these cards to our grandparents. Didn't Harper do a good job with the mouth?
What you need: construction paper, crayons, a plastic Easter egg, a cotton ball
Cut out the shape of a bunny head from a piece of paper. Color a face on it. Glue the head on the bottom of the egg, and glue the cotton ball on the top of the egg. That's it. Sorry for the bad picture.
