Surf's Up

The weather outside is frightful, but what better way to forget the cold for a day than by throwing a beach bash? Unless you're one of those lucky people who live in a tropical paradise, the partying will be confined to the indoors, but that doesn't mean you can't make the most of it!

Don't let your guests get crabby from hunger! These "crab" sandwiches are so festive and easy to make! Use croissant rolls to make a variety of sandwiches, like turkey and cheese, or peanut butter and jelly. Not only are these sandwiches adorable, but they'll satisfy even the pickiest of eaters! Find the instructions at Simply Creative Ways!

Now that your little beach-goers have had some lunch, they need dessert! These beach cupcakes can be made with your favorite cake mix and are easy to decorate! Using only a few ingredients, this cupcake design can easily be replicated by a decorating amateur! Find the step-by-step instructions at So Festive.

Our surf's up cupcake toppers are the perfect addition to your festive dessert. With a mix of sea blues, bright orange, and lime green, these toppers bring summer wherever they are, even during the winter!

Make sure you thank your party-goers as they leave the "beach." Put fun beach favors, such as sunglasses, beach balls, and bubbles, in a plastic beach bucket! How awesome is it that the bucket doubles as a favor and a functional container? Photo credit: Kara's Party Ideas.

These favor tags add a personalized touch to your party favors! Images vary and include blue sharks, orange and green surfboards, and blue and orange swim trunks!

The best part about the holiday season is celebrating with those close to you! Whether you're helping out at your child's school party or you're getting friends and family together for some festive fun, these holiday party ideas are great!

These "Christmas light" balloons are a fun, easy way to add some festive flavor to your home! Use light up balloons or glow sticks for an awesome glow in the dark effect! You can also add glitter or confetti to make your "lights" shine! Find step-by-step directions at Living Locurto

Split into teams and use toilet paper, scarves, and hats to turn one of the team members into a snowman. Whoever creates the best snowman in five minutes wins!

Gingerbread houses look so fun, but they're usually a messy pain to make. It's nearly impossible to keep the sides together and, with one wrong move, the whole thing falls apart.

Kick Cabin Fever to the Curb

"The weather outside is frightful." Is there a lyric that more accurately describes the winter weather? Winter break is right around the corner and, understandably, you may not be super eager to play with your kids outside in the cold and snow (we don't blame you)! But just because you're staying inside doesn't mean you can't enjoy the season!

This "snow dough" is easy to make and SNOW much fun to play with! It's super soft, naturally cold, and, we saved the best part for last, it doesn't require any cooking! Use beads and a variety of other fun embellishments to create snowmen! When your kids are done playing for the day, just store the dough in a Ziploc bag or air-tight container until next time. Find the instructions at Growing a Jeweled Rose!

This winter hat craft is the perfect indoor activity for kids and can be tailored to any age group. Use a variety of markers, crayons, colored pencils, stickers, and whatever else you can think of to decorate the hats! For younger kids, have an adult cut the hats out after the decoration process. Find the template and full directions at Easy Peasy and Fun!

This fun mitten math snowflake counting activity is a great way to incorporate some math into winter break! Perfect for toddlers and preschoolers, this winter-themed counting game helps with number recognition and fine motor skills! It's easy to set up and will keep your little one busy and productive! Find the instructions at Stir the Wonder!

This snowflake painting project might be messy, but it sure is fun! Two activities combined into one, kids can first decorate their canvases with either coffee filter snowflakes or painter's tape! After that, use paint, glitter, and anything else fun to turn the canvas into a winter wonderland! Peel off the tape or coffee filters and voila! Find the step by step directions at Little Bins for Little Hands!
