On the Thirteenth Day of Christmas…

We have twelve days until Christmas!! Have you finished your Christmas shopping yet?? I know I am not even close!! However, I do have a fun activity for you and your kiddos to do together!! Grinch Dust to keep the Grinch away, so he doesn’t steal your Christmas!!

What you need:20141213_100454

Zip-lock Bag

Granulated Sugar

Blue Food Coloring

Yellow Food Coloring

Glitter (Optional)

Butter Knife (Depending on what kind of food coloring you have)

 

Pour your sugary substance into a Zip-Lock bag. Make sure that you do not have any clumps in your sugar. Also make sure you do not have a hole in your bag. The sugar will pour out if you even have a small hole in the bag.

This does not have to be Wilton food coloring, this is just the only blue and yellow food coloring I had.  You can use whatever food coloring you can find that is blue and yellow. You can also just get green food coloring to do this.

Once you put the food coloring in, you will need to shake it up. This is the fun part!! Kiddies will love this! I put quite bit of blue and yellow food coloring to get a  gorgeous Emerald Green color. You can determine how you want the color to turn out. I just really like Emerald Green better. Make sure you have all the food coloring mixed in the best you can. If you are using a water based food coloring it will be easier to mix it all together. Another thing that you need to wary of, the Zip-Lock bags that are not like a zipper (Where you pull the plastic bit and it seals the bag) and you just press the edges together: If you are roughly shaking the bag it can become unsealed and sugar will go everywhere! 20141213_101645_Richtone(HDR)

Once you have green sugar, you can add some glitter to your mixture! It doesn’t have to be pink and black, it can easily be green. However, that wont show up too well against the green sugar. I also suggest that you use extra fine glitter. This will look like different colored sugar crystals. You don’t even need to use glitter if you don’t want to.

When you added the glitter you will need to shake it up once again! Make sure the glitter is evenly distributed. It wont be too hard to do this step, not as hard as it was getting the food coloring evenly distributed.

Once you are finished shaking the bag, you can put it into any container you want. I put it into the cupcake holder. This ended up being the finished product. I absolutely love the color! It turned out a bit turquoise in the picture. But it is still a pretty color!

How to Use It: 20141213_102152

On Christmas Eve put it in front of you door outside and the Grinch wont steal your Christmas!

This was a fun project to do, even by myself! I am sure a lot of people will like this project as well! If you are making this with your little ones make sure they don’t get the food coloring everywhere. Maybe do the food coloring yourself and let the kiddos shake the bag. Also this is not edible because we put the non-edible glitter in it.

Keeping Christ in Christmas

” 4 And Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee, to Judea, to the city of David, which is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and family line of David, 5 to be registered along with Mary, who was engaged to him and was pregnant. “

(Luke 2:4-5)


Yesterday my mom got another package. So I got to see the UPS man again. Nothing awkward happened which is very good! I then organized my face, eyeshadow, other eye makeup, and false lashes into separate makeup bags. Which will make my life so much better than just putting them all in one huge bag. Other than that, I didn’t do much.

Thank you so much for reading!! Don’t forget to come back tomorrow for another post! Hint: Fun holiday paintings of the nails!

Until tomorrow!

Follow your dreams and never give up!
