My favorite pinterest steal was the fleece scarves. Super easy and made a cheap party favor that wasn't more candy or cheap toys to throw away later.
Second favorite was the stained glass candy, even though you could probably shank someone with a sharp peice of it, the kids navigated it just fine without making their gums bleed. Even M mastered it without difficulty.
I bought little sticks on etsy and made rock candy. It was an obnoxious process and now I know the exact consistency of syrup. I'm so happy to have the blue jars off my counters. And the cello bags made for pretzels worked perfectly.
The first activity was making marshmallow snowmen.
I tried not to laugh as a few girls asked for a tenth marshmallow because they had eated the first 9 instead of building a snowman :)
It was fun to meet the Aurelia from preschool I had heard so much about. I can see why J is such friends with her.
We also played pin the nose on Olaf.
J liked being the one to spin her friends.
Then it was time for cake and presents!
SHe received two "Let It Go Wands" and kept them both, which really has helped with M's sharing problem. And there is always one for a little friend who is over to play.
Aunt Marcie made her the coolest mermaid tail sleeping bag that she insists on the sleeping in every night.
"A Giant Barbie!!"
"It's a frozen game!"
And from the daughter of one of my soul sisters, an engineering toy meant to help girls enjoy STEM activities.
Now I just have to wrap my head around having a 4 year old!
