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? ⁣

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. ⁣

The holidays are usually a blur for me. Between decorating, cooking and prepping the house, its non-stop. It’s hard not to feel overwhelmed when you add in our everyday chores as parents. I think it’s important to keep the kids occupied with something that you can use, instead of sitting them in front of a screen. Plus, it’s great to encourage your little one’s creativity. We love to choose a few projects every year and have the girls create our holiday décor. They love that we proudly display their projects and they make a great gift for your guests or their school friends! This year, we are excited to share our first Christmas craft idea, the snowman jar!

What You’ll Need

  • Jar
  • Yogurt or white chocolate covered pretzels (or any other white snack or candy)
  • 3 black buttons
  • Red ribbon, yarn or string
  • Glue dots or hot glue
  • Scissors

How to Create Your Snowman Jar

  • Fill your jar with your snack or candy and close top.
  • Glue each button in a vertical line in the front of the jar.
  • Tie the ribbon, yarn or string around the top. I chose to braid three pieces of yarn to make it look more like a scarf.

If you want to get fancy, hot glue a tiny top hat to the top of the jar. Want to get even fancier? Using a white marker, add the recipient’s name on the hat. They can then serve as a place card at your holiday table.

I love this snowman jar craft because it’s really easy for the kids to create and fairly inexpensive. One snowman jar should cost somewhere around $1-$2, depending on the cost of the jars. I got mine at a local craft store for $1 each, but if you buy them in bulk, they can be even more inexpensive.

We’d love to hear what you think of this snowman jar. Don’t forget to subscribe to our newsletter for more fun craft ideas, including our reindeer hot cocoa jar!

If you're looking for a fun and easy idea for your holiday table, this snowman jar craft is inexpensive and adorable!

XOXO
