I’ve gotten so much positive feedback on the copycat Starbucks Pink Drink recipe I put up on the blog last month and I just wanted to thank you guys so much! Since most of us aren’t going out, it’s fun to try to make our favorites at home. What copycat recipe do you want me to share next?

Back in January, we visited @legolandflorida for the first time. One of the highlights of that trip, was discovering Granny's Apple Fries. We've been pretty obsessed with them since the first bite and wanted to try to recreate them at home.⁣
⁣
I researched, I googled, I tried two different recipes that I found online that claimed to be Legoland Granny apple fries copycat recipes. And they were both huge failures. ⁣
⁣
After a whole lot of brainstorming and trial and error, we fell back on something that seems to save the day for us on a regular basis... funnel cake batter. ⁣
⁣
We dipped our apple sticks in the batter, fried and tossed in a cinnamon sugar mix. OMG... HEAVEN.  Cinnamon sugar apple fries are EVERY 👏🏻 THING 👏🏻 and I’m sharing the recipe today on the blog (click on the link in our bio or swipe up in stories). ⁣
⁣
Would you dip them with caramel, whipped cream or both?⁣

One of my fondest memories growing up was going fishing with my Papa and my Uncle (swipe left to see me and Papa just before one of those fishing adventures). #ad There was something about that special time outdoors, waiting to see if we could catch something, that still brings a smile to my face. ⁣
⁣
My kids have a very different childhood. While they love to play outside, most of their hobbies are done inside and include a screen. I often wish I could show them how much fun it was to have a technology-free childhood. ⁣
⁣
Now that we’ve been spending more time at home, we are making it our mission to introduce things from our own childhood, starting with fishing. I’m happy to report that we’ve added fishing to our weekly calendar, and we feel good about bonding over “reel time” with our kids, reminiscing about our childhood and passing along our nostalgia and knowledge of fishing to our kids with the help of these Just Add Nature kits. ⁣
⁣
Just Add Nature is easy, FUN and designed with kids in mind! Plus, you can pick them up at @walmart or on Walmart.com for under $8! ⁣
⁣
Have you ever taken your kids fishing? What ways are you incorporating outdoor time into your schedule? ⁣

You know our family loves all things A-R-T. You can often find one of us drawing, sketching or painting #ad. So when we found out about BodyMark by BIC Temporary Tattoo Markers we couldn’t wait to try them out! Last week, Super Dad spent some much needed quality time with our oldest, Lucia, creating this gorgeous masterpiece. Didn’t he do a great job? Lucia also drew something to remind her of our late Nana on her other arm that turned out so beautiful. Check out our stories to see the video! I love it! ⁣
⁣
If your family loves art as much as we do, you’ll love these @BodyMarkbyBIC markers. They are special because they are designed to be used on skin. The flexible tip makes it easy to draw thin or broad lines. BodyMark comes in 8 vibrant colors and the designs can last a few days, but are also easily removable by concentrated soap and water or make up wipes. You can purchase them on Amazon (swipe up in stories). I’m thinking about pulling these out at our next kids party! Wouldn’t that be fun? ⁣

Iyla (pronounced eye-la) loves coding, Pokemon, talking to her friends, learning new languages (currently Hebrew and French) and hanging out with her sisters. ⁣

Iyla has a huge heart. This year, she is donating half of her birthday money to @cancerfreekids. She is going to change the world. I know it. ⁣
⁣
And while it may not be the birthday she imagined, the important thing is that we will be together. We will have a zoom party with friends and family, I’ll bake her a cake and make her a special dinner. She’ll open a present or two. We will make sure she knows how much we love her. ⁣

Since today is National Chocolate Chip Day, I asked my 10 year old what her all-time favorite chocolate chip dessert is. I wasn't at all surprised when she told me it was cannolis, because they are also my fave. But although I love to bake and I'm always up for a challenge, the idea of making my own cannoli shells scares me, mainly because I have the hardest time rolling out dough evenly. Anyone else have that problem? Any tips?⁣ Anyhoo, since she knows I'm not going to be making actual cannolis anytime soon, Iyla had the brilliant idea to make cannoli cupcakes instead. Genius! I am much more confident in my cupcake making abilities. So cannoli cupcakes it was! ⁣
⁣
Cinnamon and chocolate chip cupcakes with a mascarpone frosting, topped with mini chocolate chips and a cannoli chip. They turned out amazing and today I’m sharing the recipe on the blog. Just click on the link in our bio or swipe up in stories. ⁣

Today is actually “Dance Like a Chicken Day”. I had plans to dress Super Dad in a chicken costume and make him dance, but spending $50 on a chicken costume didn’t seem like the smartest financial decision, considering the circumstances. ⁣

So instead, enjoy this cute little video of Falynn dancing to her 3 year old rendition of her favorite Wicked song, Popular. Her little voice 😭⁣

Free Printable Time Capsule Page to Create a Keepsake Ornament

Looking for a fun DIY idea to end the year? I’ve created a free printable time capsule page that is perfect for all ages! Just print, fill out, roll up and tie or place into a little jar or container and hang on the tree! What a special and inexpensive way to keep track of everyone’s year. And imagine how much fun it will be to open them up in 5 or 10 years! This free printable time capsule page makes a great New Years Eve project.

Every year, with the kids home from school for a couple of weeks, we try to come up with ideas to keep them busy. While most of these projects wind up in the garbage at some point (because who has the space?!), I wanted to find a way that one of these annual projects can be small enough to save. What’s better than a printable time capsule page that can be turned into an ornament for the tree?! Storage is a breeze because they fit in nicely with your own ornament storage!

This free printable time capsule page is a fun DIY, perfect for all ages, for the end of the year. Hang on the tree and open in 5-10 years!

Supplies You’ll Need for The Printable Time Capsule

Free Printable Time Capsule Page
Letter Sized Paper
Printer
Jars with Corks or Fillable Ornaments
String
Marker or Pen
Label Maker
Scissors
Glitter or Confetti (optional)

How to Put Together

  1. Print out our free printable time capsule page. It’s best to download to your computer and then print. It will fit any letter sized paper, but double check your printer settings to make sure it all fits on one page.
  2. Have the kids (or adults) fill them out.
  3. Fold paper and roll up (the size will depend on whether you are putting this inside of a container or if you are just going to tie a string around it and hang it that way).
  4. Tie a string around the rolled paper to keep it tight.
  5. Write the name and age of the person who filled it out. If you aren’t planning on putting it into a container, write the year as well. Tie an additional string with a loop and hang on the tree. You’re all done! If you’re using a container, continue onto step 5.
  6. Place rolled paper inside container (we used a little jar with a cork top that we found at the Target Dollar Spot but you can also use fillable ornaments). You may want to add some fun glitter or confetti! These particular little jars were already filled with glitter, so we used that!
  7. Seal the container (in this case, we just placed the cork back into the top.
  8. Tie a string around the container. This is how you will hang it back onto the tree.
  9. Using a label maker, create a label with the year and stick it to the front.
  10. Hang on your Christmas tree!

Now, it’s up to you to decide how long to wait before you open your time capsule. We are going to try to wait at least 5 years (maybe even 10). We can’t wait to sit around, as a family and read everything we loved, years before.

Do you have any New Years Eve traditions in your home? We’d love to hear about them! And if you decide to make these printable time capsules, make sure to tag us on social media so we can see how they turned out!

Looking for a fun craft idea for New Years Eve? This time capsule ornament can be made each year, as your child grows!

    This is such a cool little idea and would be fun to go back and look at later with the kids as they get older. They can see what they liked at a certain age, how their penmenship developed over time. I think they’d get a kick out of this activity. Thank you so much for sharing it!
