Gift Project For Young Kids =)

Here's a good one we did last year- I baked 'gingerbread' ornaments.

I believe I did equal amounts cinnamon and flour to just enough water to make them malable to put in silicon baking molds, then baked them for 30 minutes or so (maybe longer, don't remember) then let cool over night.
Tris painted them and then we sprinkled glitter all over them, put pipe cleaner through holes I made in them (with a straw before baking), put them in organza bags and those were his gifts to everyone last year =)

So much fun!

About Me

My photo

I'm a semi crunchy stay at home wife and mama of two boys. Extend Breastfeed, Cloth diaper, Cosleep, Babywear, Homeschool, Homebirth. My sons and I have some serious health concerns (allergies, growth hormone, kidney, lung, spine, etc...). We didn't realize they were genetic (or I had) until after Trace's birth. Tristian had some big medical and possibly/probably autism related delays in early childhood but also taught himself to read at 2yrs and started on math equations at 4yrs. Trace is bit delayed across the board by about 6 months, but as he's 1yr+ behind in height... it's not very noticable ;-) Trace is very musical and hands on. With plenty of common sense, love, good doctors and faith we are doing wonderfully!

This wonderful chapter in my life of discovering the green subculture has (mostly) ended. Living green on a budget has changed from the thrill of discovery to habit. This blog remains in rememberance- with occasionally crossover posting. I hope you join me- the same green mama on a budget, in a new blog celebrating life's daily experiences- LIFE O'KAY Still lots of crafts & crunchiness- with even more sweet family moments.
