Princess and the Frog Family Movie Night

Posted by Miranda Weldon on

My husband was traveling for work to New Orleans, and brought home Beignet mix from Cafe Du Monde. If you have never had a beignet from Cafe Du Monde, you have been missing out! They are incredible! Luckily for you, if you don’t have a trip to New Orleans planned soon, you can order their Beignet mix on Amazon! As soon as I saw the beignet mix, I knew we had to have a Princess and the Frog movie night! My husband didn’t love the suggestion, but agreed to watch if it meant I was making Gumbo and beignets! Of course...

Indiana Jones Family Movie Night

Posted by Miranda Weldon on

The last movie night we had was Disney’s Enchanted, which my husband called a chick-flick. I promised him the next family movie night would be an action movie. My youngest daughter loves 80s movies like Ghost Busters and the Goonies and enjoyed the Indiana Jones stunt show at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, but had never watched any of the Indiana Jones movies, so I decided we should watch Indiana Jones Raiders of the Lost Ark!      When planning movie night snacks, I started by thinking of memorable moments from the movie, and knew I needed to do something with the...

St.Patrick’s Day Juice Boxes

Posted by Miranda Weldon on

I wanted to make cute juices for the St.Patrick’s Day snack in my daughter’s class. I found these cute Pinch Punch Tags and planned to hang them on Kool-Aid Jammer bottles, but none of the stores in my area had green in stock. I decided to just buy regular juice boxes instead, but I still wanted to use the round Pinch Punch Tags I had printed before I realized I couldn’t find green bottles. Juice boxes with their brand name/pictures/nutritional facts didn’t really scream St.Patrick’s Day to me, so I gave them a quick makeover. First I removed each straw that was...

St.Patrick’s day class snack - Pot of gold at the end of the rainbow

Posted by Miranda Weldon on

I love putting together cute snacks for my daughters class! It’s my favorite job as room mom. Our school has a policy that parents can’t cook anything for the class though, which sometimes limits the cute snacks I can make! Parents are allowed to repackage food though, which helps open up some cute options. For St.Patrick’s day I decided to make these cute bags with twizzlers rainbows, marshmallow clouds, gold coins, and a cute bag topper! Supplies needed:  Sandwich bags Bag Topper (I found this one here ) Printer Paper Scissors Staples Mini Marshmallows  Rainbow pull apart twizzlers (I used 4 bags to make...
