Personalized Phone Charger~Silly Face

We have a few Apple products around our house.  Between the Ipods and the Iphones, sometimes we get whose is whose mixed up.  Usually it doesn’t matter, but if someone wants to take their charger with them somewhere, or needs to use it,  it can lead to an argument (and no parent wants that!)

Here is an easy way to personalize your chargers so there is no more confusion about whose is whose!

Its pretty simple here is what you need:

A charger

Some googly eyes

Glue

That is!  I found a bag of googly eyes at the dollar store and chose 2 different sizes for fun.  Make sure your charger is right side up.  The top should be wider then the bottom.  Glue your eyes on to that part of the charger.

Perfect for little kids, they won’t let them out of their sight! Think stocking stuffer. Would make a great gift for a gadget lover with a sense of humor as well.

 Teacher Gift ~ Quick and Easy

It’s getting that time of year again time to think of teacher and graduation gift idea. We are here to help you with a quick, easy and inexpensive, but still adorable, gift for the teachers on your list.  They deserve a medal for putting up with that many kids.  All.  Day.  Long.  Seriously, they are saints.  So don’t forget to get them something to let them know that you are grateful for all they do for your kids.

You will need:

4×6 plastic picture frame (found mine at the Dollar Tree)

Scrapbook paper

Post it notes

A pretty ink pen

Embellishments ( on one I used a ribbon, the other a sticker)

You might remember that I showed you how to make this lovely gift for breast cancer awareness month.

The directions are the same here as they were there.

Take out the generic picture from the inside of your picture frame and use it to trace a square of your scrapbook paper.

Slide it into the frame.  Take off the back of the post it notes so the sticky part can be stuck onto the frame.  Press it on firmly.  Add your embellishments.

Throw in a pretty pen  and you are done.  Easy enough right?

These work great for male and female teachers.

Easter Tomb Snacks ~ Easy, Great Way to Teach Kids About the Real Reason For Easter

Each week my family has what we call Family Home Evening.  We take the time to spend some quality time together, and usually we have a spiritual lesson about a scripture story.  All of us take turns preparing the lesson, and since my 5 year old was in charge this time and it was Easter, it seemed like the perfect opportunity to make something a little bit different to go along with our evening.  Not only will it help as he teaches his siblings about Easter, but as he helped me prepare the snacks, he got in a little extra lesson on the subject!

You will need:

Graham crackers

Small donuts

Icing

Green food coloring

Oreos

A knife for spreading icing

Sprinkles

These are super simple and can be put together rather quickly!  It was easy enough that my 5 year old did most of the work with support from me of course.

With your green food coloring, color your icing.  I used the gel colors but I am sure the traditional food coloring would work just as well.  Spread the icing on your cracker, as thin or thick as you would like.  Remember though, first that these are full of sugar by the time you are done, but also that the donut and oreo won’t stand up without enough icing to hold them there. I didn’t do a lot, but enough that you couldn’t see cracker peeking through the icing.

Once your icing is on, add your donut standing up in the center, back of the cracker.  Now add your oreo also standing up, but placed in front and to one side of the donut.

Once I got those made I added sprinkles that came with the icing!  Who doesn’t love sprinkles?  I then made little tags for each treat using a toothpick, small piece of washi tape and a marker.  Just fold your tape around the toothpick and push the sticky sides together. Then write your Easter message on the tag before poking in the top of your donut.

Not only are these a great way to teach about Easter, but they are also a very simple treat for a church class on Easter Sunday!

Easter bunny coconut or mashmallow cakes on poka dot paper, jelly beans, cake mix, #easterbunnycoconutcake, #easterbunnymashmallowcake
Easter is a fun time of year to celebrate with food and family
One cake mix makes 2 bunny cakes.
I made one out of coconut and the other out of marshmallow,
since not everyone likes coconut as much as I do.
This was super easy and fun to make!
Easter bunny coconut or mashmallow cake ingredients, jelly beans, cake mix, #easterbunnycoconutcake, #easterbunnymashmallowcake
Supplies
One cake mix -Any flavor
Coconut
Marshmallows
Frosting in a tub (I made mine with powder sugar-
this way my little fingers in the house do not eat the frosting. lol)
Jelly beans
Green Food coloring
Pink construction paper
Red licorice (if you desire whiskers)
Easter bunny coconut or mashmallow cake mix, jelly beans, cake mix, #easterbunnycoconutcake, #easterbunnymashmallowcakeMaking the Cake
1st…Make the cake mixes following the direction on the back of the box (I usually substitute apple sauce for oil)
2nd…Grease and flour 2 pans (either 8 or 9 inch pan) and bake using the instructions on the box.
3rd…Take cakes out of the pan and put on a cooling rack.  Put in the freezer.
I made these cakes in the morning while I was cooking breakfast, and I finished the cake after dinner that same day. This way I can frost and decorate on my time!
Easter bunny coconut or mashmallow dying coconut, jelly beans, cake mix, #easterbunnycoconutcake, #easterbunnymashmallowcake, #dyingcoconutWhen the cake was baking, I made the green grass for the bunny to lay in.
How to make Green Grass Coconut
1st… Put 1 cup of coconut in a container with a lid.
2nd… Put 5-8 drops of green food coloring on top of the coconut.
3rd…  Put lid on the container and shake.
4th…Wow! Coloring coconut was that simple, and no mess!
Easter bunny coconut or mashmallow instructions, jelly beans, cake mix, #easterbunnycoconutcake, #easterbunnymashmallowcakeAssembling the Bunny Cakes
1st… Place the cake down and cut in half.
2nd…Frost both sides of the halves.
3rd…Put the halves together and place on the platter you will be using to display the cake
4th…Cut a piece out of the front and frost the piece.  Put the frosted piece on the back for the tail.
Since the cake is cold, it frosts easily.
Easter bunny coconut or mashmallow cake with coconut, jelly beans, cake mix, #easterbunnycoconutcake, #easterbunnymashmallowcakeFrost the Cake
Frost the outside of the cake, since the cake is cold; it frost easily.
Once you have frosted the outside and the frosting is drying, apply the coconut or the marshmallows.  Don’t let the frosting dry or the coconut or marshmallows will not stick.  Place the coconut or marshmallows in the palm of your hand and press on the cake.
Easter bunny coconut or mashmallow cake ear making, jelly beans, cake mix, #easterbunnycoconutcake, #easterbunnymashmallowcake
The Ears
1st…Cut out the ears.
2nd… Pinch the ears at the bottom.
3rd…Cut a slit in the top of the cake were you cut a piece of cake out.
Slice from back to front.  Slide the ear bottom in the slit area.
All done…Now it is beginning to look more like a bunny and less like a car.  (As my kids say)
Easter bunny coconut or mashmallow cake the face, jelly beans, cake mix, #easterbunnycoconutcake, #easterbunnymashmallowcakeFinishing Up
Now add the jelly beans for a nose and two eyes.  You can use shoe string licorice for whiskers too.
Sprinkle green grass coconut on both sides of the bunny.  Add a few jelly to the grass coconut along side the bunny.

To Make the Bunny Fatter
To make the bunny fatter, you can use all 4- halves side by side to make him wider.
