As always we have so much fun crafting with Elizabeth Hashagen on News 12 Long Island. We decided to get crafty for New Years so that we can keep the kids entertained before midnight. Let’s be honest it is hard for the little ones to stay up so we have some ideas to make it fun.
Every party needs a pinata! This countdown ball pinata is the perfect way to ring in the New Year with your family and friends. When you make it yourself it will cost little to make but just give yourself at least 2 to 3 days to get it ready for your party night.
We had such a great Facebook event of all local Long Island parents sharing their Elf on A Shelf ideas that we wanted to share what happened all month-long.
Local parents shared their photos and ideas, we had a great Giveaway provided by Elf on A Shelf and we even created a Pinterest Page with the photos of the elves that were provided by local parents.
In the beginning of the month when we announced the Elf on a Shelf Idea Facebook Event we had an amazing response. From the comfort of home, cell phone, or tablet parents could come to our event and get inspired by other parents. Facebook event link —–>here
A wonderful addition to the Pout-Pout Fish series for families to enjoy reading this Christmas.
The loveable and grumpy Pout-Pout Fish is down in the dumps during the most happiest time of the year. Why?, because he is not having any luck finding the perfect gifts while holiday shopping for his friends. My family and I loved the positive message you learn at the end of the story. The message learned is that the perfect gift is one that comes from the heart and not one that is necessarily store-bought. Mr. Fish learns the joy of giving gifts he made to all of his friends. I loved this book so much because I always make hand-made gifts with my girls for our loved ones. I teach them that there is so much joy given to others when they receive something you made.
