Mermaid lovers get ready! The holidays are right around the corner and we did your Christmas shopping for you! Everything below is UNDER $25! From kids to adults we covered the mermaid lovers bases. Happy Shopping!
1. THE GRATITUDE GAME
We love this activity that Karyn from her blog Teach Beside Me created! This game combines the game of pick up sticks with practicing the act of thankfulness. You drop the sticks and as each child or adult picks up one of the sticks, they match the color of the stick to the print out sheet. The print out sheet has multiple questions asking what your child is thankful for in different categories! What a great idea Karyn!
2. PERSONAL THANK YOU CARDS
What says practicing thankfulness like coloring homemade thank you cards! Kimbo from the blog A Girl & a Glue Gun, has made it easy for you with FREE Printable thank you cards that your kids can fill out and color. Have them write to their teachers, friends, grandparents and siblings! It will be a great way for them to take time this holiday season to sit down and thank those who they are thankful for!
3. SCAVENGER HUNT
What is more fun than a gratitude scavenger hunt to do with the whole family. The blog Let’s Get Together, created the coolest gratitude scavenger list. On one of these chilly fall days, take your kids outside and walk around having your kids look at nature and say what they are thankful for using the list as a guideline. It is easy for us adults and our kids to take for granted the pretty trees and the air we breath. You will love the time you took to do this activity with your kids!
A fun twist on the traditional S’more! Sam from Aww Sam, gives you step by step instructions on how to first make the colorful marshmallows and then the S’mores. The S’more includes the homemade marshmallows, graham crackers, white chocolate and COTTON CANDY!
How fun are these! All you will need for this simple recipe are golden Oreos, chocolate and OF COURSE, Sprinkles! We love how Lindsay from Sprinkles for Breakfast, took such a simple concept and elevated it! These Oreos are so pretty and will be great to make and package up for holiday gifts!
We love how the blog Hello, Wonderful created such a colorful but semi- healthy snack. Made from sliced apples, cream cheese (or any spread you prefer) and sprinkles. Your kids will love decorating their sliced apples with their favorite toppings! One word- YUM!
Nothing says fall like warm and gooey rice krispie treats! The blog Cookies & Cups, made their colorful rice krispie treats with marshmallow fluff, fruity pebbles & rice krispies. So yummy, so easy & so colorful!
Nothing will look prettier than this colorful cake roll in the center of your table this holiday season! Beth from the blog The First Year, made the cake roll with vanilla cake, cream cheese frosting and lots and lots of sprinkles! So easy yet, so impressive! This cake roll will leave all your guests in awe!
