Chip Chicken Lollipops

Ingredients

  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves – cut into cubes
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 2 cups crushed potato chips (I used multigrain tortilla chips… mainly because that is all I had in the pantry…and I didn’t measure but that’s just me…. you could use your favourite flavour or do a variety of flavours if you have chip lovers in  your house)

Paper Wallet For Dad

This activity is brought to you by Dawnica Flatt.  Dawnica is a Kamloops mom, Stampin Up demonstrator, Early Childhood Educator and new business owner with Snug-Glee Bumz Diaper Service (coming soon!).

This is a neat project to make with the kids.  It can then be used to present a gift of money, as a gift card holder or the gift itself!  I found it online and remember making similar wallets when I was younger.  Your older child can follow the instructions or you can create the wallet and have your toddler decorate it especially for Daddy!

Turtle Cookies: Kidz in the Kitchen

Chrystal Wagner is blessed to be at home with her two little ones (a boy and a girl).  She is an occasional contributor of delicious kitchen goodness. You can read another of her recipes, here.

Recently (and only recently haha) I became a bad friend. One of my friends brought over some yummy and fun cookies recently and of course I had to have the recipe.  After I made my own batch I posted a photo of them on my facebook page. without. giving credit. Not only that, I gave out the recipe too.

Thankfully my friend forgave me and also gave me permission to share her recipe here, as well.

These cookies use a waffle iron to make!  I had never heard of that before so that was part of the allure of making the cookies and also that I had all the ingredients since it doesn’t require chocolate chips (which have an incredibly short shelf life in my house).  My two year old daughter helped me mix them, but I did the “cooking” by myself, I’m sure older kids would have a blast dropping them onto the waffle iron! Oh, and I “cooked” my cookies for about 2 minutes, but I enjoy things a bit crispy… Here’s the recipe, enjoy!

1/2 cup butter, melted

4 tbsp unsweetened cocoa

3/4 cup white sugar

2 eggs

1 cup flour

1 tsp vanilla

dash of salt (optional)

Melt butter and mix in cocoa. Add sugar. Beat in eggs. Stir in flour salt and vanilla. Drop from spoon on hot waffle iron and bake approx. one min. Cool on wire rack.  Devour!

Make Your Own Bubble Solution: Crafting With Kids

I have kept the bubble wand- tubes that my kids have used up (or just dumped out on purpose) just because I can’t bear to toss them when I could use them again.  I have the big bucket of bubbles that you can get for super cheap but they didn’t seem to be working for some reason.  I would dip the wand and the solution would just all run right off.  I even shook it around to try and mix it up.  I wanted to make up some of my own bubble solution with the kids so I went online to find a recipe.  I found a great one!!

All you need is a big measuring cup, 1/2 cup of dish detergent, 1 1/2 cups of water and about 2 teaspoons of sugar!  You mix them Continue reading Make Your Own Bubble Solution: Crafting With Kids
