Summer Gift Idea: Personalized Towel and Sand Bucket

by Holly

Summer is right around the corner!  How I love summer birthdays.  (Jack, Ella, and I are all in June a week a part from each other, so for 3 weeks, its birthday season!!)   One of my favorite gifts to give is a beach towel with a name embroidered on it, and a Blinged out sand bucket!! I use a low temperature glue gun to hot glue Ice Cream gift cards on the shovel, and a sharpie to write our birthday message on the bucket. I hot glued the stones on too!  Fill Bucket with sand toys, sunglasses, and a new bathing suit.  The birthday boy or girl will be all set for a fun day at the beach!

Here are a few towels I’ve done.  So easy to sew out, and it’s something they love to use!!

Chocolate Dipped Ice Cream Cones

by Holly

I scream! You Scream!  We all scream for Ice Cream!!

What can I say?  I know it’s only April, but I can’t wait for summer to get here.  It was hot today, and the kids were in the pool, so I had to make something summery-yummy! 

Cinnamon Toast Crunch Chocolate Carmel Ice Cream Cones!!

Here is a pic of mine.  It was just as tasty as it looks.  Carmel dripping all over the place.  It was wild!

So here’s how easy they are:  I love these little chocolate cups.  You can get them in the grocery store by the fresh strawberries, they are called “Dolci”.  They are the best!!  Heat in the microwave, dip, and throw them away.  Zero mess!

I crunched up Cinnamon Toast Crunch Cereal, and I have to tell you, if you haven’t tried it on vanilla ice cream, you need to.  It’s Amazing!!  Add a little carmel, maybe a banana.  Trust me, your mouth will smile, (FOR A WEEK!) 

So dip, sprinkle the crunched cereal, and add sprinkles, anything you have in your stash.  Then Set on a piece of parchment paper to dry.

Find some kids, (and adults, a-hem) and start scooping!!

Then make them all smile at you, when all they really wanna do is eat the yummy treat you just gave them!
