A Toad-ally Fun Frog Fiesta!


Celebrate this Leap Year Day by making the kids a Frog Quesadilla for lunch or dinner! It's very easy to make!

We melted some cheese and black beans in between 2 spinach tortillas. You can do this in a heated pan or microwave. Make the eyes with sour cream. We used black beans to make the pupils and nose. We cut a tomato for the mouth and tongue. We used a black bean with sour cream wings to make the fly.

This is a fun way to get the kids to eat a spinach tortilla! Happy Leap Year Day!!

Linking up to these awesome link parties...please check them out!

Cut Out Clover Cupcakes


We made these fun St. Patrick's Cupcakes last week and they are SO easy to make! Martha Stewart made these Valentine Cupcakes....


I was seeing these everywhere around Valentine's Day so we just recreated that idea using a shamrock cut out instead of a heart.

Just make your favorite chocolate cupcake recipe (we like Pillsbury). Put a few drops of green food coloring into white frosting. We used a cream cheese frosting. When the cupcakes are cooled...cut the tops off with a knife and dust with powder sugar (if you would like)...


Spread on the frosting. Cut out a clover/shamrock with a cookie cutter in the middle and place on top of the frosting. How easy is that!

Horton Hatches the Egg Pops


We have been making lots of Dr. Seuss goodies around here lately and thought we would share this one with all of you. Horton Hatches the Egg is my 5 year olds favorite Dr. Seuss book. When he was in pre-k last year they had a Dr. Seuss parade and wanted the kids to find things around the house to dress up like their favorite character. He just had to pick a hard one and chose Horton Hatches the Egg. I was hoping he would go with something easy like Cat in the Hat..Thing 1...Thing 2...but we ended up pulling it off. We thought that making Horton pops would be fun and cute to celebrate the birthday of Dr. Seuss on March 2nd!

All we used to make these were marshmallows, chow mein noodles, white cookie frosting, edible marker, chocolate, & lollipop sticks.

There are pretty easy to make. You will need mini marshmallows, large marshmallows, and square marshmallows (the s'mores kind). Make the nest first by melting chocolate and mixing in the noodles. Shape the nest on wax paper and poke the lollipop stick in the middle to make a hole. Let that dry. That is one big nest for the size of a elephant..but who cares it looks cute that way!:)


Draw the face on the large marshmallow with black edible marker. Cut 1 square marshmallow in half and cut around the halves to shape the ears with kitchen scissors. These work out great for cutting...doesn't get all sticky! Take another square marshmallow and cut off a strip from the side to make the trunk. Cut at a angle on the end so you can attach it at a angle. Take 2 marshmallows and attach them with cookie frosting. Make two of them for the legs/feet. Make the details with the marker. Attach everything on with cookie frosting and let dry.

Take out the stick from the nest and flip it over. Poke it back through and press on the marshmallow body and head to secure. Put a little bit of melted chocolate around the bottom of the nest and stick to make sure it does not slide down.


We just love Dr. Seuss books and had a lot of fun making these and the rest of our Dr. Seuss goodies. We hope that you like them too!


Here is my little 5 year old in his Horton Hatches the Egg costume that we made from things that we had at the house. We added the peanuts just for fun!:)

Dr. Seuss Cat in the Hat Marshmallow Pops


Dr. Seuss is having a birthday on March 2nd so we thought it would be fun to make some Dr. Seuss Hat Pops! We have seen hat pops before made with sprinkles, frosting, color, etc... However, we wanted to make really easy no mess pops by using fruit roll ups. This is seriously the easiest pops you will ever make...so perfect for a preschool or kindergarten party! We made these Patriotic Pops for 4th of July last year the same way and we loved how easy they were to do and how they turned out!


All you need is 3 large marshmallows (we like Jet-Puffed), 1 s'more (flat square) marshmallow, 1 red fruit roll up (walmart brand is good because it's sparkly), white decorating sugar (optinal), and a lollipop stick. Cut the square marshmallow into a circle with kitchen scissors. Dip that into the white sugar to make it sparkly and it covers up the ruff edges. Cut one large marshmallow in half. Put the stick in the square marshmallow first. Put on the marshmallow half. Put on the 2 regular marshmallows and then put on the other marshmallow half on top. It will look like this...


Just take your cherry fruit roll up strips and wrap them around the bottom, middle, and top. It will stick together in the back. Cut off 2 small pieces for the very top and then wrap around. It will look like this...


You can secure with frosting in between the marshmallows, but we didn't and they stayed put! Here is a close up...


Here is my 8 year old with his Dr. Seuss Pop! I found this hat in my house and have no idea where it came from, but it looks pretty cute!


We hope some of you can use this fun idea for your Dr. Seuss class party or just to make with the kids for fun!

Presidents Day George Washington Pancakes


I had totally forgotten about Presidents Day until the boys reminded me on Friday that they had off of school on Monday. We made these fun George Washington Pancakes yesterday morning and it was very easy and fun to make. The boys got a kick out of it!

We used pancake mix (we like Bisquick), whipped cream spray, and 1 dark grape.

We shaped our pancake mix in the pan on low heat into the shape of his face. Cut around the edges with kitchen scissors to clean it up when it's cooled off just a bit. Place on the plate. Make another pancake and cut the nose, lips, and eye lids out of that. Spray on the whipped cream for the hair and eyes. We cut the ends off of a dark grape for the pupils.

That's it! The kids will have fun making this as well and it's a fun way to talk about our history and George Washington!
