M is really enjoying her dance classes, in fact we signed up to perform in the Christmas Recital and just finished that performance yesterday. It was so much fun. Momma and Daddy’s hearts were bursting with pride seeing our little sweetheart up there on the big stage. It was a lot of work, extra practice every Saturday and practice at home, but well worth it.
In addition to her Christmas recital we also celebrated with a Christmas party during her regular Friday dance class. I signed up to bring a party favor for all the girls so I immediately started scouring Pinterest looking for a cute idea. There were a billion! That Pinterest, it gets me everytime. Luckily I was able to hone in on one idea and it turned out pretty cute if I do say so myself.
It’s a build your own Play Doh snowman kit. A perfect little tub of white Play Doh, some google eyes, a carrot nose, a ribbon “scarf”, two stick arms and some buttons for down the front. I think the thing that really makes this set cute is the printable topper for the gift bags. It can be purchased off Etsy HERE.
It was pretty difficult to find twelve tubs of white Play Doh. They don’t sell single packs of white in stores or online, so I went on a hunt. I ended up at about four different stores, Dollar Trees and Targets and bought some foursie packs that included one white. So, I am now the proud owner of THIRTY SIX extra tubs of colorful Play Doh. That’s ok, one can never have too much of that stuff with little kiddos around right?
I was able to buy the rest of my supplies quickly, easily, and relatively inexpensively at Hobby Lobby. I bought some regular google eyes as well as some girly ones with eyelashes. I happened across some orange long cone shaped beads that worked out well for the carrot nose. Some cute ribbon for the scarf and little buttons for down the snowmans front. The Pinterest directions suggested finding sticks in your yard for the snowman arms but I opted for little pipe cleaners made into snowman arms.
All in all it was easy and fun making these little kits for a bunch of sweet little girls. My girls have had hours of fun building their own little snowmen here at home.
