Paper Bag Puppet Monsters

We are waiting for spring here - or at least the warmer spring-like days where we can be outside playing in the sunshine while we splash in the puddles made by the melting snow. Unfortunately, it is still winter in Alberta and we still have some cold  days to get past.

We were feeling crafty and decided to make some Paper Bag Monsters. They were really easy to make and we had lots of fun with them afterwards too!

Paper Bag
Markers or Crayons
Colored Paper

We colored our monsters and cut out arms, eyes and a tongue from colored paper and glued them on.

Once the glue dried we put on a puppet show!!!!! It was the perfect craft for a chilly day!!

Flower Pot Cupcakes

This recipe came from the Kraft Canada e-mail newsletter that I subscribe to, Flower Pot Cupcakes.

We wanted something fun that kids would like to take to my daughter's class and these cupcakes were a big hit! Everyone loved them.

They were easy to make and we had a lot of fun assembling them. I would absolutely make these again for a fun treat.

You can find the recipe and instructions here on the Kraft Canada website.
