5 DIY crafts to make for your friend’s b-day :)

Hey guys, it’s Morgan! Today I’m going to show you some super cute things you can DIY for your friend’s birthday ( or another exciting event! ). I know there is a lot of birthdays this time of year, so I thought this would be the perfect post for today! Without further ado, let’s get started!!!

Candy Card

-The things you need are-

  • A bunch of different kinds of candy bars (more specified in text)
  • Poster board (white)
  • Tape

Start by writing your message (you can make up your own or look for one on Pinterest or online). Whenever you come to a word that sounds similar to a candy’s name, tape it down next to the word. Keep going until you are happy with your message 🙂

2. Locker Candy 🍭

-The things you need are-

– Sticky Notes

– Candies

– Tape

This is super easy and sure to put a smile on your friend’s face. Put sticky notes on the candy saying something related to the candy that also relates to you and your friend. For example: Write “I love you to pieces” on a sticky note and tape it to some Reese’s pieces. Tape these in your friend’s locker and it will be sure to make her Snicker(s) 😆

3. Mini Survival Kit

-The things you need are-

– Travel size essentials ( Such as bandaids, deodorant, snacks, etc.)

– Bento box ( Or another type of container)

– Paper

– Markers

– Tape

– Scissors

First things first, fill the bento box with all your essentials (be sure to pick out essentials that you know your friend will love!). Next, cut the paper to size and write “Emergency Kit” on it with the markers. Tape that on the front. Cut another piece of paper to size and write what items are in the kit and why they are important. Be sure to include a nice note too!

4. Friends Canvas

-The things you need are-

– Rainbow colored crayons

– A hair dryer

– A black permanent marker

– Pictures of you and your friend

– A hot glue gun

– A white canvas

First, hot glue the crayons across the canvas diagonally in a rainbow pattern. Use the hair dryer to melt the crayons and if you’re happy with what they look like, let them dry. After it is done drying, hot glue the pictures over the crayons (diagonally) so you can’t see them anymore. Finally, write, “Some friends are just worth melting for” right above the pictures (again, diagonally).

5. Open when… cards ♥️

-The things you need are-

– Paper

– Envelopes

– Markers

– Pens

– Pencils

– Colored Pencils

First, write some notes for your friend to open in the future like “open when you turn 16” or “open when you can’t sleep”. Then, seal them in cute decorated envelopes!

I hope you guys liked this post, and stay tuned for next week’s post on Friday @5!

This one is my favorite out of all of the slimes. It is very cool to touch and smells awesome! ~ I thought it looked like a strawberry Laffy Taffy 🙂

DIY face mask ;)

Got dry skin? Make a face mask 😁 Here’s a video of me making (and trying) an oatmeal face mask! It’s kinda gross, but works well! ENJOY 😉

It’s my first video ever, so bear with me 😂

Here’s the recipe if you want to try it!

1/3 cup oatmeal

2 tablespoons honey

2 tablespoons plain yogurt

1/2 cup hot, not boiling water

Instructions: Mix the oatmeal and the water and let it sit for two to three minutes.

Then add the other ingredients. Mix well and apply to your face. Keep it on for 10-15 minute. Wash off with warm water.

10 Fun things to do on a snow day 🌨

Hey guys, it’s Morgan!!! Back with a new winter post today on fun things to do on a snow day! Without further ado, let’s get started!

1. Bake!

I am a huge baker when it comes to the holiday season, so there is no better way to spend your snow day then to bake! I found a really cute recipe for a colossal cookie in an American Girl magazine. Hope you guys enjoy it!

Colossal Cookie 🍪

You’ll need:

Sugar cookie mix (or your favorite recipe)

1/3 cup white chocolate chips

1/2 cup butter, softened

2 tablespoons milk

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

First, we are going to bake the cookie crust. Prepare your dough and put it into a greased 12-inch pizza pan. Bake this on 375 for 10-15 minutes. Then, let it cool.

White Chocolate Frosting 😋

1. Microwave the white chocolate chips for 30 seconds on high. Stir them, then put them back in the microwave for another 30 seconds. Repeat this step until the chocolate chips are melted.

2. Place the butter (softened) in to a mixing bowl and sift powdered (confectionery) sugar on top of the butter. Use a spoon to mix until the mixture is creamy.

3. Add the melted white chocolate chips, milk and vanilla to the butter mixture. Mix for a minute with a mixer or until it is thick and creamy.

To finish it off, frost the cookie with the frosting and add some colorful sprinkles!

Then, EAT!

2. Get crafty!

Crafts are always a super fun thing to do when you get bored. But, doing winter themed ones are even better! Here’s a cute mason jar craft I found in an American Girl magazine!

Starlight Lantern ✨

You will need:

  • A mason jar
  • A small brush
  • Glow-in-the-dark paint

First, cover your workspace. Use the brush to paint little dots with the glow-in-the-dark paint on the out side of the mason jar. You can also paint little stars too! Then, leave the jar in the light, so once night rolls around, the jar will glow!

3. Get comfy!

Honestly, the best thing to do on a snowy day if you really don’t want to get up is make yourself a little fort and snuggle up on the couch with a movie 🍿Here are some good movie choices that will put a smile on your face 🙂

– High School Musical –

– Elf –

– Home Alone –

– The Princess Diaries –

– The Parent Trap –

– Star Wars ✨ Return of the Jedi –

– Nancy Drew –

4. Paint your nails 💅🏽

This is a great thing to do if you are ALWAYS busy and never have time to go to the salon! Here is a cute nail idea I found in a nail book I got from Target 😁. The book is from the dollar spot and is called,  Nails! Creative DIY Nail Art Projects.

img_0420

Tools:
2 colors of nail polish of your choice

Clear top coat

Paper reinforcements, which are little circular rings you put on paper holes in a three ring binder.

Tweezers

Step one:

Apply one coat of nail polish (color of your choice) and let dry.

Step two: Apply a second coat and allow time to dry.

Step three:

Apply a clear coat and allow to dry for 20 minutes.

Step four: Carefully press the paper reinforcements down on the moon area (near the cuticle) of your nail.

Step five:

Paint with your second choice of polish on the top of your nail avoiding anything below the paper reinforcement. Allow nails to dry. Then, add a second coat.

Step 6:

When the polish has dried, use the tweezers to carefully remove the paper reinforcements from your nails.

Step 7:

Add a clear coat and allow the completed look to dry.

5. Take quizzes and play some games 🎮

A fun and relaxing thing to do when the weather outside is frightful, is take some quizzes and maybe play some games (but not all have to be video games!).

6. Read a new book 📚

A great way to spend a snow day is to snuggle up with a good book. Here are some of my favorites!

– Wonder –

– A Dog’s Purpose –

– Harry Potter –

img_0440

– Mini Mysteries –

– A series of unfortunate events –

7. Try a new do 💁🏽‍♀️

A fun way to spend time inside when it’s cold outside is to try some new hair styles!  I found this book at Target called “40 PERFECT HAIR DAYS” which was awesome! Or Click this to take a look at my unicorn hair! ]I even made the unicorn horn into a Christmas tree for a holiday party!

8. Chat with a friend 🤙🏼

Even though you probably can’t get your friend to you because of how snowy the roads are, you can still Face Time!

9. Workout 🙋🏽‍♀️

If it is too cold to go outside in the snow, stay inside and do a movie workout! A movie workout is when you watch a movie and when ever the characters do or say something that is on your list, do the exercise it tells you to do! It is super fun, but also gives you a good workout! Here is one I did a while ago 😁

10. Create a blog 💻

Here on WordPress, I created my blog! It is super easy and free, plus, you can do whatever you are interested in!

I hope you guys liked this post and if you have any suggestions for a blog post for me, email me, and I will get right on it!

Have a good snow day !!!❄️☃️
