baking, cooking with kids, crafts

Every month we run a craft challenge on a theme – November is #Snowman #Crafts.

snowman craftsOur first contribution is our snowman sandwich – a quick post-school pick-me-up!
Using two circular cookie cutters, (one for the head, one for the body) we cut a snowman shape out of one slice of bread… Buttering the other slice with peanut butter (or jam, if you have a peanut allergy!)
Sprinkle over some icing sugar, and place the second slice of bread over the top, adding silver baubles for buttons, and raisins for the eyes – you’re away!

Share your Snowman Crafts photos on Instagram, or over on Twitter, using the hashtag #GetYourCraftOn, add your link to the linky below, and we’ll pick the best ones to feature here on the host blog the following month. (and on our Pinterest board too)

The photos you share do not have to be of the finished article – let’s see your work in progress as well as your completed masterpieces! Anything related to the #SnowMan crafts or #Olaf (! if you’re Frozen fans) topic. Just tag them with #GetYourCraftOn and follow and tag us too so we know you’re taking part) Our team’s four Instagram accounts are: @incredibusy (that’s me!), @redtedart @bluebearwood &@missielizzie.

get your craft on St Patrick's DayI’m fairly new to Instagram – and I’m loving it, so I have teamed up with fellow writers Red Ted ArtMe and My ShadowZing Zing Tree and Domesticgoddesque to share some insta-fun, and find new instagram accounts to be amazed by with this ‘get your craft on’ project. Kelly recently got the #getyourcrafton ball rolling with the #Hearts themed #GetYourCraftOn (click here: Domesticgoddesque.com to see all of the amazing posts on her linky…)

So – every month there will be a craft challenge on a theme, and now it’s my turn to be the host… you’ll have two weeks to get involved.
