It’s funny the things that I miss most. Often when the girls achieved something big, we would take them to this little ice cream shop by our home for a treat. But we can’t do that now. Our state is under a stay home order through at least May. And while we don’t NEED to go places, I miss the freedom to be able to do so. I miss not having to disinfect every single grocery item before we can put it away. I miss impromptu trips to Target. ⁣
⁣
But... we haven’t left the house in almost three weeks. Because, eventually we will be able to get back to normal and drive wherever we want and spend money on things we probably don’t need. And our sacrifice for a month or two, or four, is so that our brave health workers and essential employees are not put in any additional danger. And to me, that’s worth the tiny inconvenience of being asked not to leave the house. ⁣

What do you miss most?⁣

Being forced to stay home for the next who knows how long, is not going to stop us from celebrating the seasons and the various holidays that keep my kids looking forward to traditions like homemade baked goods and fun little crafts. And although there seems to be a huge shortage of all-purpose flour, luckily we had enough in our pantry to create these delicious baked double chocolate chip donuts with fresh banana icing for Spring or Easter! ⁣

#ad This is a time of uncertainty throughout the world. As a self-employed family, we are having to make important decisions, to make sure that we are saving and spending our money wisely.⁣
⁣
After spending this past week looking at our bills, we realized that our mobile bill is way too high. We need to be able to stay connected, but we don’t need to spend a fortune to do it. We just switched Super Dad over to @mintmobile. ⁣

There are so many reasons to love Mint Mobile (and not just because Ryan Reynolds is the owner… yes, that Ryan Reynolds)! Mint Mobile lets you keep your number. They offer nationwide coverage and their 4G LTE runs on the nation’s fastest, most advanced networks. The company is online only so they cut out the middlemen and can pass the savings onto us! ⁣

It’s officially only been a few days since the schools in our state closed, due to the coronavirus global pandemic. Our family has decided to self quarantine. We aren’t going anywhere aside from the occasional quick trip to the grocery store (and by quick, I mean 2 hours because that’s how long it took for Super Dad to pick up the handful of things on my list). Don’t worry though, he put on his gardening gloves (yes, gardening gloves) and stays a safe distance from others.⁣

There are so many things I should be doing but I need structure. Otherwise, I fall off course and my house looks like a tornado went through it. So when I saw my friend Amy had created a cleaning and organizing calendar, I asked her if I could share it with all of you and she was gracious enough to agree.⁣

I love the holidays. Any holiday really. It’s a great excuse to pull out our box of craft supplies that we’ve collected over the years and use our imaginations! And I especially love encouraging our little one’s creativity. We try 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! Hopefully you already saw our Snowman Jars, which were a HUGE hit. Now, we’re excited to share our second Christmas craft idea.. these hot cocoa reindeer jars!

reindeer jars filled with hot cocoa ingredients

What You’ll Need

  • Jar
  • Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
  • Sugar
  • Mini Marshmallows
  • Googly Eyes
  • Red Pom Poms
  • Brown Foam Sheets
  • Glue dots or hot glue
  • Scissors

How to Create Your Reindeer Hot Cocoa

  • Layer the jar with cocoa powder, sugar and top with mini marshmallows and seal jar.
  • Glue two googly eyes, two antlers* and a red pom pom nose on each jar.

*Antlers should be cut out of foam sheets or can be purchased already cut out, as part of a reindeer craft making kit in some craft stores.

If you want to give these hot cocoa reindeer jars as gifts, you can personalize the antler area with each name, using marker or pen!

I love this reindeer hot cocoa jar craft because it’s really easy for the kids to create and fairly inexpensive. One snowman jar should cost somewhere around $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 hot cocoa reindeer jar. Don’t forget to subscribe to our newsletter for more fun craft ideas, including our snowman jar!

Looking for a fun and easy craft idea for the kids? This hot cocoa reindeer jar is perfect! You can use them as table decor or gifts.

XOXO
