Snowman Soup

I found this great "recipe"on Pinterest many times.
And finally it was time to make them. September was to soon :) ha ha
It was a nice little project, very fun to make.
The children will give them to their teachers before the Christmas Holiday starts.

Snowman soup
(in Dutch: Sneeuwpop Soep)

1 sachet with Hot Chocolat Mix
1 Candy Cane
few chocolat kisses (also know as M&M's)
handfull snowballs (mini marsmallows)

For the link to the template of the label click here  to: Kate Hadfield Design.
The text I used is in Dutch, but if you Google, you'll will find many in English.
Text, in Dutch:

Sneeuwman Soep

Wanneer het buiten koud is
en vakantie in aantocht voor je groep
Dan is het, als ik me niet vergis,
tijd voor Sneeuwpoppen soep

Laat het pakketje choco mix in een mok vallen
en voeg er hete water aan toe
Daarna is het tijd voor gedroogde sneeuwballen
en de chocoladekusjes toe.

Nu nog roeren met het snoepstokje, ja ja, de hele boel.
Krijg je nu al niet dat fijne, warme Kerstgevoel?

Homemade Lemon & White tea Scrub

I was looking for a great Teachers gift.... and found it!!!
First I was looking to bake something, again... or recipes for cookies in a jar, when I stumbled on to this, it's perfect!
Homemade Lemon & White Tea Scrub.
I started by making the Lemon scrub, but my lemons didn't have enough sent. so I added a few drops of fragrance oil from the Body shop. I used White tea, but I can easy see me making this in December with Cranberry or Cinnamon.

1 1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup olive oil (almost any other will do fine, like coconut or almond)
2 tbspn lemon juice
3 drops fragrance oil (or esoteric oil)

Mix together in a bowl, have oil and sugar nearby so you can add to your liking.
And done!

I used an old jam jar, clean it really good.
Spoon the scrub mix in it.

From felt I cut a circle and put it over de lit, holding it on place by a rubber band.
The label I adopted from : Joy Ever After, Printable cookie and gift labels
I made the silhouette from my daughter and added these to the labels.
The spoon I got from a thrift shop, I love those. I also found 6 other great spoons... so more scrub coming up!

Jungle party at school - Go Diego Go

My eldest daughter had a jungle party at school today. She was dressed up as Diego (Go Diego Go).
I made a few things myself :)
From an old jacket I cut off the arms and glued on a badge.
And I made the Rescue Bag from a t-shirt and made the face with felt.

Other things that make me happy

As you might know, in Holland we cycle....... A LOT.
We got all diffrent child seats too. My youngest was getting to big for my front seat. And the Eldest not ready yet to cycle on 2 wheels herself.
I saw 2 other mothers with an extra saddle on there bikes.
So after some digging:

We tested it yesterday. I'm still able to cycle normal and my little one still sits comfortable.
Even my eldest tried, she also sat well and felt like a queen :)

Now I'm still able to cycle with my 2 girls. No hot cars in the summer, just slightly breeze - cycle trips.
:) :) :)

I won & Got the Bento jibes again....

Last month I sent one of my bento's in for a contest.
I don't make fancy bento's at the moment, my eldest girl want's to fit in at school, at that means a plain ham sandwich (so boring)

I got so many nice reviews (I sent the Bumblebee bento)
And on top of it all, I WON!!!
I won a a giftcertificate at Kids@Lunch
I'm so happy.
Ever since my eldest doughter went to school, I want a Goodbyn lunchbox for her... bit expensive.
So guess what I bought :)
Yeeeee, I bought a Pink Goodbyn.

Can't wait for it to arrive.

And by winning I got the Bento Jibes again. So I might slip in some Bento this week, ha ha ha
