Cutie Candles and Baby Changing Station

Cutie Candles

How fun are these! All you need is a Cutie and some Olive Oil!

Cut a Cutie, a.k.a. Clementine Orange, around the middle, peel in half, cut a cute shape out of the top,  (hearts would be so cute for Valentine’s Day) use the pulp stem in the bottom half as a wick, fill with olive oil, light the pulp, and enjoy your little Cutie candle.  Will burn for hours.  Do not leave unattended, and always be careful playing with fire.

Thanksgiving Fun

Here is a little turkey I did with my kids for favors last year

Here’s how:

Bake Chocolate Chip Cookies. Wrap in plastic wrap.  Glue on Feathers and Turkey Faces. Googly eyes would be cute on these! Have I mentioned I love googly eyes?

Scroll down to the bottom for a copy of this turkey

I can’t take credit for this one. My assistant leader Kerri made this one last year for our Thanksgiving Girl Scout meeting  snack.  I think she did a great job!!  The girls loved it.  She used a cantaloupe for the body, and a pear for the face.  Too Cute Kerri!!

Every Sunday we have family game night with a big Sunday dinner.  This is my in the hoop Build A Turkey Game.  For those of you that do not have an embroidery machine, you can cut him out of construction paper to play.  Scroll down for rules
