If you feel so inspired, please grab a button and link up.
Here is how it works.
1) I toss out a theme, which will run for about a month.
2) On Thursdays I will put up a linky and then sit back and be impressed by all your creativity.
3) Add my Theme Party Thursday button to your post or your blog so others will know where they can go to join the fun! (posting a link is just fine too.)
3) You link up your craft projects, recipes, party favors, etc. that are related to the theme. I am especially interested projects that could win me the “Coolest Room Mother of the Year” award. (If there were such a thing, that is.) ahem…
4) In exchange for your playing along, I will stop by and visit you and hopefully scores of others will too. scores.
O.K., then here are some rules:
1) Please stick to the theme (as closely as you can)
2) Only family- friendly links, please.
3) If you link up, please do your best to visit some of the other participants.
It occurred to me the other day that I had some awesome stuff going on in years past that YOU have never seen. Don’t be shy, people. I don’t care if it’s an older post, or a project you did yesterday. Good ideas are still good!
The theme for October is anything Fall or Halloween related.
Here is the button, which is conveniently decorated in a Halloween theme in case you have a short memory.
The kids and I made some fun treats the other day. They may not blow your hair back in terms of technical skill required, but we thought they were cute and they were definitely delish!
We mixed up a big batch of Rice Cereal Treats.
I added some orange food coloring, but I have a thing about too much food coloring, so I wimped out before I could get them REALLY orange. They were kinda peachy though. :)
I used a ton of butter on my hands to shape gobs of the stuff in to balls.
(until I remembered how well water works…and it’s not messy!)
We let them dry a bit.
Then pushed a little dent in the top, plopped a bit of frosting in it, then inserted a piece of Watermelon Double Bubble. Cool, right?
The kids really liked that part.
Then I piped on some lines to make them look more like pumpkins.
Aren’t they cute??
One of my beloved angels is never “happy enough” with cute.
So for him, I took the peachy colored treats and created this:
Yes, indeed! That is a brain in a jar.
Here’s another shot of the specimen outside the jar.
He loved it!
Ok, now it’s time for you to link up all your great ideas.
