The Legend of the Candy Cane- a book review

The candy cane is more than just a sweet, minty treat we enjoy at Christmas.  There is great symbolism that reminds us of God’s sacrificial love.  The story of the candy cane is retold by Lori Walburg in her latest board book entitled, “The Legend of the Candy Cane.”   It all begins in a candy shop in a small town.  When Lucy extends a helping hand to the new stranger in town, she discovers the hidden truth of her favorite Christmas candy.  Make this a traditional reading  and share the secret and miracle of Christmas this holiday season and for many Christmases to come!

Share the Legend of the Candy Cane this Christmas.  Print out this tag and attach to candy canes with a red and white ribbon.  Pass them out to everyone you meet.

This is a perfect activity to do in Sunday School or at home with your children.

I found the tag on one of my google searches.  I do not know where it originated from.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from booklook bloggers and the review is of my own honest opinion.

Boo To You! Collect your treats in style this Halloween! DIY Trick or Treat Bucket

Here is a super cute, easy, and fun Halloween craft.  All you need is a colored pail and sharpies.  You can find your pail at The Dollar Tree in the summer/beach section or the $ Spot at Target.  We went with Orange pails (like pumpkins) and black sharpies.

I let the kids decorate their Halloween pails.  My son N made a pumpkin face and my daughter A drew a cute Halloween scene…

These are super easy and fun to make!

Adorable Bunny Mason Jar craft

Here is an easy last minute Easter craft that can double as a super cute gift. It took me about 10 minutes to make these adorable Bunny Ear Mason Jars that I filled with treats for my mom and sister.

Materials:

Bunny ears (I purchased mine from the dollar spot at Target)
Mason jar
E6000 (adhesive)
Scissors

Step 1: Cut the bunny ears from the headband. I followed the seam of the material and was able to cut each ear out. Some have stitches that can be cut that will release the individual ear. I also removed the wire from each ear.

Step 2: Using the E6000 glue the ears to the lid of the mason jar. Allow to dry.

Step 3: You may want to glue the lid to the metal ring. I found this part to be tricky just because the ring screws on and it was hard to set it just right. The first one I did the ears didn’t line up right once it screwed on. So I skipped this step going forward.

Step 4: Fill the jar with your favorite Easter treats.

 

Blessed Easter my friends!
