It’s the 2nd annual Spring Petting Zoo at the Bruce Company!
Bring your camera to take pictures and feed the animals: goats, chickens, llamas, sheep and more!
The Bruce Company, 2830 Parmenter St, Middleton.
***Don’t forget your hand sanitizer!
It’s ALWAYS a good idea to use it after you feed animals in any kind of petting zoo setting.
After the egg hunt, we zipped over to Walmart
(I knew Target was already out) and played Peep Fairies!
A lot of people looking frantically at the Easter Candy were handed a coupon and shown where these puppies
(or should I say chickies?) were at for $1.00 each.
Thanks to the coupons, they got TWO for that $1.00
and were tickled pink!
Keep in mind they were handed the coupons by a cute
5 year old, wearing bunny ears, who said “Hoppy Easter”.
Thanks again Lynelle –
you made a LOT of people happy today!
Don’t look into the light when taking your own picture….bwahahaha!
The ears are courtesy of Miss Sarah –
she decided we needed a matched set for today’s Tupperware Team Egg Hunt.
We had over all the kiddos that could make it for an egg hunt and simple snacks.
The kids got split into age groups and let loose!
Rachal and her new peanut cheering on the older kids – and snacking out!
They get to keep what is INSIDE the eggs – I get the eggs back for next year. We are a very “green” group! Here is Miss Sarah checking out her haul. Dontcha love the cowgirl boots? I can NOT get her out of them!
Lots of fun stuff!
Then came the “prize eggs”. Everyone got an egg that had a number in it – when their number was called, they got to pick a BIG gift off the prize table. Everything from Matchbox Cars to stuffed bunnies to choose from – yes, I have fun, LOL!
EVERYONE is always a winner in Tupperware events!
Some of the kids showing off their loot!
THEN, you need about a cup of vodka and 3-4 days. (Perfection takes time…)
Put the bears in a container and pour the vodka over them. Cover and chill in the fridge for a few days and it’s magic! The colorful little suckers drink all the vodka!
You now have larger, plumper and juicier bears – that are better than Jell-O shots!
I had seen this idea from virginiaandcharlie.blogspot.com on Pinterest:
It’s a pretty simple concept:
Take plain canvas, draw your design in Elmer’s Glue. Let it dry and paint the canvas all one color.
Easy-peasy – right?
So I came up with my designs: a tiara and a castle, and drew them in glue:
Then, I painted them pink.
When they were dry, I took “Star Dust” Stickles (glitter glue) and went over the relief to make it “pop” more.
The final result?
Check it out.
I had the glue, paint and stickles – the pack of canvas cost me $4.99 – and it had four 8×10 canvases in it…. so I made both of these for $2.50
Yes, I love decorating on the cheap
Michael’s Craft Stores have something fun Monday Night:
Their Knack has a Girl Scouts 100th
6:00-7:00 PM, ages 3 and up.
I have no idea what it all entails but it could be fun to check out.
I did remember how adorable I thought they were and how PERFECT for a weekend scrapbook crop.
So yes, for the crop this weekend,
I made them.
It is a little futzy but SOOOO stinkin’ cute when they are done – the gals loved them!
Start with Nutter Butters … that yes, I had gotten with a coupon and hidden away so my cookie monster husband wouldn’t eat them.
Then, split them apart and scrape out the filling.
I added a cup of peanut butter and a cup of powdered sugar and little butter (1 TBSP?) to it and zapped for a minute, stirred and zapped 30 seconds more. I wanted it all “creamy”.
While that was going – I took some pink candy melts and grated them with my Cuisinart. About 1/3 the average bag.
I will tell you to LEAVE THE COOKIES ON THE COUNTER while you do this. If you don’t, you will use less than Christian language when they keep breaking in half in your hands….
Here is what they look like when you are done:
What do they taste like?
A vanilla dipped Nutter Butter.
It’s the last day of DR Seuss week at school — so we wanted a fun way to wrap it up.
That meant Thing 1 and Thing 2 cupcakes!
We went a little healthier with mini lemon poppyseed muffins as the base, then dusted them with a light coat of frosting. Quickly we inserted shredded blue cotton candy to make the wild “hair”.
It was an EASY project for Miss Sarah to help me with and the twenty of them we whipped up were decorated in less than twenty minutes…over a delightful conversation of Barbies and American Girl stories.
This is SO MUCH MORE fun that simply buying a snack and taking it to school – I wish everyone had the time to do this!
