Are you hosting a football party or maybe a Super Bowl Party?  My son was having a Football Party, but I did not want to spend a bunch on decorations.  But at the same time I wanted it to look fun and festive.  I decided to make fun, low cost football serving containers for the chips out of a brown paper lunch sack.  At first I just dumped the chips right in the bag… but that left grease spots all over them.  I found it works best to keep the chips in their normal bag, and fold the top down or cut it off.  Then use the brown paper bag as the outer shell.

A bag of chips has a LOT of air in it, so I bought medium size bag of chips and it filled up the small (standard) lunch sack just perfect.  Start out by taking the flat, brown bag and drawing on the black laces of the football.  I did mine with a sharpie marker.  Open up your bag and  then fold down the top a few times to create a “bowl” out of your bag. Put your opened bag of chips inside, cut off the top of the bag or roll it down so it will not show.  You can use Football Stickers  and Craft Twine to decorate the bag too.  Clean up is super easy, just toss the bag in the trash and you are done :)

Thanksgiving Pie~ Paper Plate Craft

Here is a cute way for your kids to think about, and share what they are thankful for.  Would be a cute craft for them to put together as they wait for the yummy Thanksgiving feast get to ready!

You will need:

3 paper plates

brown paper

orange paper

1 brad (to hold the plates together)

glue

something to write with

Begin by cutting a large circle out of your brown paper.  I simply traced my plate on the back of my paper.  Cut the middle out of a  paper plate to create a template for the filling of your pie.  Take your template and trace a circle to cut out of the brown paper.  You should end up with a big letter o.  Glue that down well to one of your paper plates.

Using your template you made from the extra paper plate, trace a circle and cut it out of the orange paper.  Glue it on top of the brown.  This will be your pie filling.

Take your last paper plate and have your child write what they are thankful for.  Leave a little space between.  May be a good idea if your kids are young to take a ruler and draw lines for each “slice” so they know where to write.  Also have them write “I am thankful for” on top of the pie.

When they are done writing what they are thankful for, help them poke a hole through the CENTER of both paper plates.  If it isn’t directly in the center it will not rotate correctly.  Now cut out a slice from the top plate only.  Make sure you don’t cut too far and go through your hole you made in the center. Now simply line them up and secure your brad through both of them.

Easy peasy!  My kids loved making these and I loved hearing what they were thankful for.

1st photo

What child does not like marshmallows-even more– cupcakes!  
Add a movie and you have a fun night with the whole family,
while eating these adorable popcorn cupcakes!

2ndSupplies:
Cake mix
White Frosting
Cupcake holders
Marshmallows
Paper
Red Marker
Tape
3rdInstructions:
Bake Cup cakes and let cool.
Frost cupcakes once they are cooled.
Apply the marshmallows on the top.
My 7 year old put them on the top-there is no specific way to make them look.
4thNext:
Make the striped muffin cups.
I drew out a pattern like this.
They have them online for free, but I decided to free hand mine.
5thI cut out the pattern and added stripes.  The stripes are 3 lines thick.
Meaning when I ran the marker across to make a stripe, I did so 3 different times to make a wider stripe.
I connected the two sides together with tape, which then formed a cup.
I dropped the cupcake into the cup.
6thALL DONE!

DO NOT PUT IN OVEN TO TOAST THE TOP OF THE MARSHMALLOWS!
Frosting will melt.  I tried this to see what would happen and I had   marshmallows and melted frosting everywhere. ha ha!
You can use a longer lighter and lightly toast the marshmallows, or a blow torch.  I chose to leave them plane.

They made my heart giggle when I saw them the first time.  My daughter and I had so much fun putting them together.
Perfect for a Circus Theme party too!
