Snowy Cupcakes

We got snow. A lot of it. So to pass the time, we used Janae's 3rd birthday gift, a Sassafras cupcake kit. Not so eco-friendly ingredients but oh so tasty. This one came with a spoon, cupcake liners, cupcake tray, mix, sprinkles, frosting and cute rhyming instructions. I didn't even check the various artificial ingredients it contained but the girls had fun helping mommy in the kitchen and those little cakes were dee-licious with a tall glass of milk. Zebra Mix is a company creating organic baking mix kits for kids. You can purchase simplified kits with mix, frosting and a Safari baking map on Amazon or Shop Organic for about $4.59 and one with all the bells and whistles. I am trying the Zebra chocolate chip cookie kit next time.

Get Creative

We purchased a doll house for my three old yesterday for Christmas. Well, we purchased two of them but one is going back. Janae wanted a Dora Doll House but that one is orange, plastic and kind of gaudy. The one we love is a pink and purple (her fav colors) and hand crafted wood with non-toxic paint Melissa and Doug house. Oh and did I mention the wood one is $40 cheaper on Amazon? So we are furnishing it with the Dora furniture and figures and will probably slap a big ole Dora sticker on the front of it. Toys R Us sells Wooderland, an eco-friendly line featuring non-toxic paints and rubber woods. Little more expensive but very cool.
