We had an incredible Winter Wednesday. Both kids were extremely happy and we all had a blast! We may look like we are always happy, but believe me, sometimes Theme Nights do not go off so well!
We started our evening off with a yummy leek and potato soup. It's so yummy covered in a bit of cheese and dipped with sourdough bread. Yum...
For dessert we feasted upon...
Snowman Cake Pops
The faces could have been a lot cuter, but I just used what was on hand! I stacked three chocolate cake balls onto a stick and covered all three balls in candy melts at the same time. Be a bit gentle, the cake balls can get a bit too heavy, break, and fall off. I only had blue candy melts but loved the color covered in the white sprinkles. Next time, when I have more supplies and time, I will make the faces a bit more endearing.
During our evening "snow" would randomly fall down upon us. "Snow" was in the form of marshmallows that I threw up in the air. The kids LOVED it and thought it was hilarious!
For our fun activity, we made...
These turned out even better than I imagined. Besides the white balloons, I used materials I had on hand. My husband bought these awesome hats in New York City, I was so sad when my children grew out of them last year, but now we have a Logan and Hannah Snowmen that can wear them! For adhesive, I used crafting glue and glue dots. We also used some clear tape to tape the balloons together. I did tie two balloon ends together and then had to glue the bottom balloon to the top two.
A few materials we used:
Eyes and nose- buttons
Mouth and arms- pipe cleaners
Scarfs- fabric scraps
Other fun materials- rafia, marshmallows, chocolate chips, popcorn kernels, silly string, and sticks.
I would love to read your fun "winter" activities! I'm always on the lookout for new ideas!
