1. Amanda’s recipe for Fairy Dust is the perfect sparkly, sweet smelling something for hours of magical play. My Hazel is very excited to make a little pot of her very own! And, honestly, I’m kind of excited to dab a bit onto my hair and shoulders.
2. I love the bright colors and interesting textures of Dana’s Spaghetti Box Feathers. Cereal boxes are one of my favorite materials, so these speak to my heart. And, oh my, the feather necklaces are so sweet!
3. Homemade Snow Dough!
4. These beautiful snowflakes made from twigs and bits of nature. Via The Crafty Crow.
5. This oatmeal cake looks amazing. Yum!

Gather your white paint and children on a cold afternoon and make this cheery holiday gift wrap. It is a fun way to spend a few hours in the afternoon and my children always feel so proud and excited to see stacks of packages wrapped in their own artwork.
Materials: kraft paper (or brown paper bag), snowflake stamp(s), white pigment ink pad, white acrylic paint, paint brush.
Easy peasy instructions:
1. Cut paper to size
2. Draw a horizon line.
3. Use the white paint to fill in the hill under the horizon line.
4. Use the snowflake stamp and pigment ink to create falling snow
5. Let dry and then use it to wrap your gift.
If you are going to use a big sheet for a bunch of smaller gifts, you might consider painting hills all over the paper, so all of the presents will have both hills and snowflakes.
Oh, and snow forts, snow people, and snowball piles would be great too!
