Candy Bar Etching



Candy Bar Etching is the perfect way to say Happy Father’s Day this year!  It’s so simple and easy that kids of all ages can enjoy making this little craft for Dad.

Start with a regular candy bar and use a toothpick to write or draw on the back.  Lightly brush away chocolate flakes as you go.  Then spread a generous amount of Powdered Sugar over the candy bar and lightly press it across your etches.  Use your finger to brush away the extra powdered sugar.  Then use a damp paper towel to clean off the entire candy bar.  What’s left is your design, beautifully etched into the chocolate.  Then wrap your candy bar in new tin foil, and cover with a label.  Have your kids color a custom label to put on it, or download the one below.

Here’s the label I made for mine:

(Just print in colored ink on regular white paper, trim the edges, and you are ready to put it on your large candy bar!)

I can’t wait for my husband to open this special candy bar we made just for him!

Recipes for a Good Marriage – Bridal Shower Games

My sister-in-law is getting married soon, and it was so fun for me to help do her Bridal Shower Games last weekend.  Here is a quick game I put together that she could use at all of her showers.  I call it “Recipes for a Good Marriage”.  I think it turned out great!  It was quick and easy to put together (I found those cute boxes at JoAnn’s for $1 each!) and it was a fun thing for everyone to do while they visited at the  shower.


All you need to do is download and print the instructions page (link below), and get some recipe cards and pens ready.  So simple!  Be sure to remind the bride to be to take this game with her to all her showers.  The more recipes, the better!

Marriage can be tricky at times.  Good advice from those that have experience are exactly what newlyweds need.  This is such a great way to collect awesome marriage advice from all your friends and family.

DIY Drive In Movie with Box Cars



Looking for a fun way to entertain your kids?  How about having your own Drive In Movie?

When I did it, I got a few apple boxes from my local grocery store and wrapped them in white paper.  Then I handed the kids the markers and let their imaginations take over!  I also added a paper plate for the steering wheel which I attached with a brad so they could actually turn them.

Then we put on a movie and had popcorn!  They loved it, and I’m sure your kids will too!
