Ginger Bark a Deliciously Addictive Holiday Treat

by Jennifer Wieland
Ginger Bark is a simple 2 ingredient candy treat that is utterly delicious and giftable! #candy #holidays #Christmas #recipe #ediblegift #quickandeasy

While baking for my family Christmas party this the other day I decided to make something new. Everyone knows all about Peppermint Bark. Chocolate and crushed up candy canes combined to make a cool, creamy holiday treat. The problem I have with that though is that it’s been done to death and you don’t want to show up somewhere that already has 5 variations of the stuff. so if you’re over peppermint or it isn’t your holiday flavor of choice and if you’re the one always eating the gingerbread cookies at holiday parties then I have got the perfect holiday treat to make for you! This treat is going to have you standing out in the edible, homemade gift giving department this year! Ginger Bark is going to become one of your favorite go-to holiday treats to make!

I know exactly what you’re thinking, Ginger Bark, what on Earth us that? Ginger Bark is something that is going to put you on the holiday party map and leave the boring old Peppermint Bark in the dust! In Ginger Bark I have taken white chocolate and kicked the peppermint to the curb and replaced it with crushed up gingersnaps. I have to tell you that the pairing is freaking phenomenal! When I made it my daughter and I kept munching on it and when I brought it to my family Christmas party it received rave reviews from everyone. The white chocolate and the crispy ginger cookies are such a perfect pairing.

Halloween is right around the corner and that means classroom parties and treats for all the little ghosts and goblins that come knocking on your door as well. With all of the food allergies many schools no longer allow food or candy for class parties and Halloween trick-or-treating leaves many parents of children with food allergies in fear.

How about a Halloween mask gift idea plus printable to jazz it up to set your little monster apart at their class party or make your house the most sought after by food allergy families?

This Halloween mask gift idea is such a simple one. If you’ve ever been to a craft store I’m sure that in the children’s section, seasonal area or near the registers you have seen those inexpensive wooden masks that are usually about $1. They are meant to be colored in by kids and you can find them in different varieties year round. This is such a perfect thing to hand out at Halloween since masks go with Halloween just like candy. Even better? Craft stores always have coupons so this can help cut the cost of this already inexpensive idea!Halloween Mask Gift Idea Plus Printable - A perfect option for classroom parties or trick-or-treaters with food allergies!

All of these wooden masks have wooden handles for the children to hold the masks up to their faces and these handles make a great spot for a wraparound printable. I created a simple and fun one to attach to each mask. There is a blank area on the back of each printable for your child to write who the mask is to and from our if you are simply handing these out to trick-or-treaters then you can leave it blank or sign it with your family name.

Mommy Date Time Made Affordable Thanks to Restaurant.com #ReviewCrew
I am part of the Restaurant.com Review Crew. All thoughts and opinions are 100% my own.

 

I like to be able to take the kids for some one on one time periodically. It’s helps to let them know they are special to me and that I want to spend time with just them and hear about anything they want to say. When you have multiple kids it can get hard trying to find that balance to give each child the attention they need and deserve, That’s why these little mommy dates are so important. Luckily, Restaurant.com helps to keep our dates affordable.

Recently I had a mommy date with my daughter, I hopped onto Restaurant.com and found a gift certificate for a family favorite chain of Mexican restaurants, Pepe’s. I printed it off and then we were on our way to our mommy date.

Mommy Date Time Made Affordable Thanks to Restaurant.com #ReviewCrew

My daughter being the baby of six and the only girl truly believes the universe revolves around her thanks to all the older males in her life treating her like a princess. So for her our mommy date was just some time for her to beam and tell me all about everything that she finds fascinating at the moment while eating food she loves. 

Mommy Date Time Made Affordable Thanks to Restaurant.com #ReviewCrew

Chips and salsa, tacos, tamales and of course her favorite pink lemonade made the meal perfect!

Another reason my daughter loves coming to Pepe’s is that she loves the colorful murals that are in each location. She is always fascinated by them.

Teacher Appreciation Gardening Gift Idea Plus Printable

by Jennifer Wieland
Teacher Appreciation Gardening Gift Idea Plus Printable

Teacher appreciation is next week. That means it’s time to get creative and find fun and unique ways to show your kid’s teacher(s) how much you appreciate everything they have done throughout the year. I know a lot of teachers who like to garden. In fact one of our local schools has a garden that some of the teachers and staff volunteer in. I thought what would be a fun teacher appreciation gardening gift idea? Why, a garden tool and some special seed packets of course!

What I really love about this idea is that not only is it a gift that would be used and appreciated by a gardening teacher but it’s also VERY budget friendly. Seed packets are cheap and found at all kinds of stores in the spring. Gardening tools are actually a great dollar store find I love. 

Teacher Appreciation Gardening Gift Idea Plus Printable

SUPPLIES

Seed packets

printer paper

tape or glue

whole punch

twine

gardening tools or gloves

INSTRUCTIONS

Print the seed packet printable and cut out the envelopes on the black lines. 

Teacher Appreciation Gardening Gift Idea Plus Printable

Once the envelopes are cut out, take a seed packet and fold down about 1/2″ at the top. Tape to hold in place. turn one of the cut out envelopes over and place a seed packet on the back side.

Teacher Appreciation Gardening Gift Idea Plus Printable

Fold the edges to form the envelope and then tape or glue the edges.

Teacher Appreciation Gardening Gift Idea Plus Printable

Your seed packet is now nicely wrapped in a thank you to teacher. Now you will also be able to feel that there is a place at the top where you can safely punch a whole. 

Teacher Appreciation Gardening Gift Idea Plus Printable

Once you have the whole punched you can thread some twine through and tie it to a gardening tool or pair of gloves.

MY M&M’S Makes Every Celebration Sweeter

I have used the MY M&M’S website and ordered before. My latest order was for my daughter’s birthday party this upcoming weekend. I haven’t shown them to her yet and I am keeping them as a surprise. I was able to pick her favorite colors, add a photo of her and customize the M&M’S to wish her a happy birthday. Then I went through all of the different packaging options and was able to pick single serve packaging in her favorite color, pink. 

MY M&M’S Makes Every Celebration Sweeter

 With Valentine’s Day right around the corner MY M&M’S is a great way to express your love to your significant other, children, family or friends in a fun and edible fashion.

What would be more fun than a class of little ones getting M&M’S with a class photo, the teacher’s name, the grade and a Valentine’s Day greeting? Another fun idea is creating special M&M’S for each of your kids to let them each know why you love them on candy this Valentine’s Day.MY M&M’S Makes Every Celebration Sweeter
