We kept this week's Winter Wednesday a little bit lower key. I attempted snowmen stew, snowflake cupcakes, and a fun game called "Roll A Snowman." The key to a successful theme night is advanced planning. I find if I don't plan well, then I become stressed, and it is not a pleasant sight. Try to prepare as much as possible ahead of time!
Onto the festivities!
I made a quick and easy stew and attempted to make snowmen out of mashed potatoes. My husband preferred to use the veggies and I preferred to use sugar decorative flakes. Which one do you like?
For desert... my favorite... I made snowflake cup cakes that I first saw on Glorious Treats.
I made the royal frosting snowflakes the night before. They are dainty little things and easily break! I made my snowflakes with a little too much water which in return let them mold to the cup cake. Glorious Treats gives a great tutorial on royal frosting.
While feasting on the cupcakes, we played "Roll A Snowman." I first saw this game on Somewhat Simple.
I used the template seen above, but you could definitely make your own! If you would like to use the template, please visit her post to print. I did change the game just slightly by using a large, colored dice instead of a numbered dice.
The kids loved the game and it is one we will definitely play again very soon!
I'm starting Twitterpated Tuesday next week for our February theme! I hope you will join us!
