Im Loving This

As a blogger I read lots of different blogs out there. Some of them do these great little Linky things that I can participate in. Now today it has to do with children activities. You can visit Kelly's Korner for the topic.

Yes I am aware that I do not have children, but I do have 9 nieces and nephews so I know a thing or two about playing with children and keeping them entertained.

Yesterday! That was an activity that was involving children but it was not a stay at home activity. But I can think of one that has really stuck out in my mind.

On holidays I have invited over some of the babies, the ones that wanted to and we bake cookies. The ones that correspond with the holiday that we are celebrating. This involves a little prep work but can be incredibly inexpensive especially once you have built up a little tool kit with food coloring, multi-colored sprinkles, and piping bags. I keep this in my cabinet all the time if we ever need to have a baking day. It can also help if you are not uptight about sprinkles being spilled on carpet. I have no problem with this because I have a good vacuum cleaner.

This could be a great summer activity, make summer cookies. Flip flops, fish, swimming toys, the options are endless. The decorating can take several hours and keep children entertained and can provide a wonderful sweet snack when you move outside to the pool.

The only picture I have as an example are the Halloween cupcakes, but we have done Thanksgiving cookies, snowmen and turkey cupcakes and so many more. You can search ideas online of what you want to make and it will usually give you an ingredients list. These are fun to make and even better to eat.

What do you think about this? The diet and weight loss blog advertising cookies and cupcakes. And I'm proud of it. Everybody needs a cookie every now and then.

Hi there! New follower :) I found you through Kelly's Korner, though I'm not participating in it today.

I've recently lost 94 pounds so I know the struggles of weight loss. I have roughly 10 pounds to go and am starting to get frustrated because they just WILL not come off :P

Anyways, just wanted to say HI! and hope you pop by my blog :)
