Rudolph the Reindeer Paper Mask Craft

My daughter is really into making these paper masks this holiday season. Here is our most recent creation, Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer.

Here is what you need to create this mask: Construction paper, glue stick, scissors, tape and popsicle stick or straw.

Pinterest Fail: Peppermint Plate

I've been seeing idea of cooking peppermint candies in the oven and creating a decorative plate. This looked relatively easy to try and if it had worked it would have been a get addition to my Christmas Eve table. But, this was not the case, this was defiantly a Pinterest fail.

I used peppermints from another Pinterest fail, a peppermint wreath.

We unwrapped the candies and arranged them on the parchment paper. 

Then we cooked the peppermints at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. 

When it came out, the outer edges were bubbled and the center was only slightly melted. Now this could have something to do with my oven, it is pretty old. 

I would love to hear from anyone who had lucky trying this craft.

Santa Paper Mask Craft

Over the holidays we have made many paper masks, my daughter loves creating them. Again all that you need for this mask is construction paper, glue stick, craft stick and a piece of tape. I cut out the piece and my 3 year old, glued and taped the piece together, with a little help.
