Making the snow shooters only took me a few minutes. I began by cutting the bottom off of two white cups. Then I took two white balloons and cut the tops off of those to create a larger opening. This made it easy to stretch the balloons over the cup bottoms. I layered the bottom rim of each cup with glue before pulling the balloons over the openings. I used a glue stick, but hot glue would probably work even better. Once the balloon pieces were secured I decorated the front of the cups to look like snowmen using craft foam
Once dry you can give kids cotton balls, white pom poms, or balled up paper to shoot at each other. All they have to do is place the "snow" inside and gently pull back on the balloon
The snow will go flying!
We used cotton balls for our snow. Rosie and Jewel have been having lots of fun shooting snowballs all over the house, and especially at each other. One thing I love about this toy is that clean up is a breeze. It only takes a minute to gather up the snowballs and tuck the snow shooters away for another day.

We found the perfect money lei for graduation and thought we'd share how to make it: Items needed: 2 spools of black ribbon (12 feet each), $100 (in dollar bills), and black paper.
Step 1: Start folding each dollar bill like a fan, as shown below.
Step 2: Cut the black paper the same size as a dollar bill. You will need 100 pieces cut. Fold them the same as each dollar bill.
Step 3: You will need 2 dollar fans to make 1 circle. The same goes for the paper fans.
Step 4: Take each spool of ribbon and unravel them. Place one end of each spool together and form a loop. You will then sew the loop in place. End result: a loop with 2 long strands of ribbon coming down.
Step 5: Now that you have a loop with 2 ends, you can get started tying on the money and paper fans. Keep in mind that there are 2 ends of ribbon, but you will use them to tie, so in the end, there will only be 1 strand.
Step 6: Alternate tying the paper and money using both strands of ribbon, and soon you will have the completed…
Want a darling package to send to your missionary that is ALL READY to go? We all have good intentions, but sometimes time slips away and those care packages or other crafts/gifts get put aside. If you need to send something without all the fuss - let us help!
Each day's card is designed in black and white and starts like this... "On the (1st) day of Christmas, the Savior gave to me..."
We wanted to emphasize all the many things that the Savior has given all of us.
Here is a brief summary of the candy bars included as well as the "gift" that the Savior has given us on that particular day. Each card has either a scripture, a quote from a prophet, or lyrics to a song that correlates with the gift.
Day 1 - A "Symphony" of Christmas songs
Day 2 - A gospel that is worth way more than "100 Grand"
Day 3 - A "Sweet" family to enjoy this life with...
Day 4 - An opportunity to be a "Lifesaver" in other's lives...

You're in for a sweet treat with this month's visiting teaching gift! A sweet striped paper sack sets the tone for this lovely little goody. Inside you will find the full message from the Ensign (a full color print), with a chocolate Hershey bar. The "HE" of the Hershey is showing and a tag covers the "RSHEYS" letters that reads "(HE) is the Good Shepherd and Loves each one of us. Let us follow His example." The darling details of gold tulle, doilies, hearts, and our "Sending you Love" tag just finishes off this one of a kind gift.
Oh how we love the month of "Love" around here! This home teaching gift just has that bright, fun look that will get you motivated to go out and home teach! We've combined the full message from the Ensign (a talk by Pres. Thomas S. Monson titled "Serve the Lord with Love"), a package of gummy hearts (12 servings), and of course a darling tag and ribbon to finish it off with sty…
