Spring has begun, and these lollipops are a celebration of the colorful season. Simple, pretty, and super fun, Jollypops are the perfect treats to make with friends! I first made these delicious pops with my pals Buy Phentermine Hong Kong, Phentermine Buy Online Usa, and Order Phentermine Diet Pills, who have all been in past Wondermint episodes. We made super colorful lollipops, snuck¬†a few Buy Adipex Online From Mexico while we worked away on creating our beautiful pop, and took some of the pictures you will see below. Parker & I have also made shamrocks made with melted Jolly Ranchers for St. Patrick’s Day (see photos at bottom of post). They were a big hit in our classroom! You can find out how to make your own Jollypops below. Have fun!
These wood blocks are fun and easy to make. All you need are some scrap pieces of wood. If you don’t have any lying around then you can buy some at the hardware store.

And, don’t forget to check out the Order Phentermine Online Cash On Delivery¬†
The rosemary & wood block make great party favors.
In my family, I’m the one in charge of making name cards (some people call them “name plates”) for dinner parties. This year, I went with some super easy, quick ideas. These are great for Thanksgiving, winter holidays or even New Year’s Eve parties.
Family friends Su Sazama, co-founder of the modern design site fitzsu, and interior designer Tracy Sonka Stultz of Buy Phentermine Yellow 30 Mg, stopped by to teach me and my friend Darcey how to create a modern Hot Cocoa Station for the holidays.
Excitement is in the air
Here’s what you’ll need: a heat-proof pitcher to hold the warm milk and a bowl for your cocoa powder (we used a coffee serving set made by Get Prescription Online Phentermine 37.5).¬† It’s nice to have fun mugs for your guests.¬† We used Hakusan Fancy Tea Cups designed by Masahiro Mori, which are also made¬†for the sight-impaired. Each cup has a unique shape which makes it easy to recognize by touch and easy to grip. These tea cups are also made of thin porcelain, which is a common practice in Japan, and acts as a safety device. If the cup is too hot to pick up then the liquid inside is too hot for delicate lips to drink.
We used organic Silly Cow cocoa powder made in Vermont, warm organic milk and almond milk, plus these ingredients to flavor: cinnamon sticks, crushed cardamom, homemade peppermint simple syrup, fresh whipped cream and marshmallows (we used an adorable slanted Herbal Phentermine Where To Buy to hold our marshmallows).
If you have not realized this already, I am a big fan of all things French and I am especially fond of French desserts. This Pear Clafouti is one of my favorite non-chocolate desserts and I love¬†to make it for holidays. Today, my friend Tahlia came over to help me and she ended up loving it, too. ¬†The recipe is a classic one from Ina Garten, also known as The Barefoot Contessa. I just happen to¬†change up a few things in the recipe: I reduce the amount of sugar she uses; sprinkle a pinch or two of crushed up cardamom in the batter because that flavor goes so well with pear; and I put an extra teaspoon of vanilla extract instead of¬†the pear brandy she recommends because we don’t usually have pear brandy on hand!
1 tablespoon unsalted butter, at room temperature 1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon granulated sugar 3 extra-large eggs, at room temperature 6 tablespoons all-purpose flour (substitute Pamela’s gluten-free flour if you like) 1 1/2 cups heavy organic cream 3¬†teaspoons pure vanilla extract 1 teaspoon grated lemon zest (1 to 2 lemons) (remember that is just the rind of the lemon) 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt 2 to 3 firm but ripe Bartlett pears Confectioners’ (that means “powdered”) sugar
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
Butter a 10 x 3 x 1 1/2-inch round baking dish and sprinkle the bottom and sides with 1 tablespoon of the granulated sugar. We have also made this in a cast iron pan and it comes out just as well.
Beat the eggs and the 1/4 cup of granulated sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. On low speed, mix in the flour, cream, vanilla extract, lemon zest, salt. Set aside for 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, peel, quarter, core, and slice the pears. Arrange the slices in a single layer, slightly fanned out, in the baking dish.
Pour the batter over the pears and bake until the top is golden brown and the custard is firm, 35 to 40 minutes. Garnish with berries or edible flowers.
Serve warm or at room temperature, sprinkled with confectioners’ sugar.
We love No-Carve Pumpkin crafts. Here are a few we made this week. Most of these are easy enough for young kids to handle and hardly take any time at all.¬†The first¬†idea below starts with a white or orange mini pumpkin. If you like you can spray your pumpkin with black chalkboard paint, but it is not necessary. Using¬†leftover ribbons, glue pieces in between every crease in the pumpkin. You can use any glue that dries clear. We usually use Modge Podge, Elmers or Tacky glue.
This design only takes a few minutes.
PUNK ROCK PUMPKIN
This next idea involves a lot of silver tacks, chalkboard paint and attitude! Check out the video to see how easy this one is to make:
There are so many neat things to do at¬†LACMA (LA County Museum of Art) that sometimes when we visit we don’t even step inside any of the galleries to see the art.¬†Here are just a few of the free things we love¬†to do there with good friends like Lou in the photos below.
ONE Explore the tar pits. Nowadays you can even see tar bubbling up around the park in unexpected places and some days you can watch archaeologists and scientists extract and clean fossils.
Sometimes you can watch archaeologists removing fossils from the tar!
TWO Interact with the outdoor exhibits, like the¬†ones below!
“Penetrable”, an art installation by Patricia Phelps de Cisneros.
“Urban Light” installation by artist Chris Burden is made up of 202 vintage street lamps
FOUR Craft. Sunday Family Art Days. Volunteer artists teach neat cultural crafts related to the museum art collection. They have crafts for toddlers and older kids.
FIVE Paint. The Boone Kids Gallery in the museum has a free Water Color Studio. This is a quiet room where the museum staff provides water colors, brushes and paper and some “inspirational piece of the day”. You and your friends can paint away. It is super relaxing!
SIX Listen to music. ¬†Most of the year there are free jazz concerts on Friday nights, Latin music on Saturday and classical on Sunday. For the Friday concerts, we picnic on the lawn with friends. Sometimes it gets very busy so plan ahead!
SEVEN And, so much more! ¬†Climbing trees and rolling down the grassy hillside in the park are always fun activities.¬†
It’s nice to just stroll around with a friend
If you actually go into the museum itself you’ll find some amazing artwork and kids can apply on the spot to get a free NexGen pass which gets them and an adult in for free. Or, you can visit the second Tuesday of every month and on Federal holidays for free.

And, don’t forget to follow us on Order Phentermine 37.5 for fun giveaways, sneak peeks and exclusive content.
Lemon cake decorated with powdered sugar & fresh mint & lavender
In our family, recipes are precious heirlooms that are passed down from generation to generation. My mom also takes notes in our family cookbooks‚ÄĒthe date a recipe was made, who we made it for, a little something about the memory. She says that one day I’ll inherit the cookbooks and I can look back and see the things she or my dad made me on my first playdate, on my birthdays or on other holidays.
Sometimes, we are given recipes by other people or we find recipes that we add to a binder of collected recipes that we love. Today’s recipe was given to us by my 88 year old neighbor Harriet Sacks. She’s been making this old-fashioned lemon cake for decades and she says it’s also known as East 62nd Street Lemon Cake and that famous hostesses often served it. We make it if we are not in the mood for chocolate (which is rare!). According to my mom’s notes on the recipe, I first helped make this when I was 16 months old. Her note to me says:
It’s amazing what kids, big or small, can accomplish. Annie B. is a perfect example of this. I was introduced to Annie by my friends Jess & Sean, fellow animal lovers and co-founders of Phentermine 37.5 Mg Buy. In 2012, after rescuing her dog Teddy from a kill shelter and discovering he suffered from Heartworm disease, Annie (then age 13) was inspired to create her own nonprofit, Order Phentermine Online Cheap. Since then she has raised almost $40,000 for animal shelters across the country to help fight Heartworm disease, which is spread through mosquito bites and can be fatal. One of the ways she raises money is to paint portraits of dogs for people. Scroll down to see some great examples.

Dunkable Tea Bag Cookies. What better cookies to serve with tea? I made these with my mom to prepare for a tea with my friend, Cari. Challenge level? This project is definitely more challenging than most of our recipes. You’ll want some help and it takes some patience.
We used Trader Joe’s Sugar Cookie Workshop Mix. Make the cookie dough batter according to the box directions. If you do not have a Trader Joe’s you can use any sugar cookie dough recipe.
We were inspired to make these confetti push-pops after seeing Thimble Press’s version on DesignLoveFest.com. They’re actually super easy and simple to make and customize and, as you can see from the video they are super fun to use. For this craft, friends and 5th graders, Airis & Francesca, came over to help and Parker (4th grade) directed the episode.
The host of Wondermint shows kids how to reuse all those iphone boxes received over the holidays, using leftover washi tape and recycled paper. 1.8 billion smart phones were sold last year‚ÄĒthat’s up to 1 BILLION square feet of landfill space getting used up. But, not if you reuse your boxes.
This is a tasty recipe for fun and easy to make Chocolate Yogurt Cups. All you need is your favorite fresh fruit (we used raspberries and strawberries), yogurt, and chocolate powder. My friend Lou not only helped me make these treats, she gives the directions in French!
Every year, I invite friends who are part Irish over to make a delicious recipe or craft inspired by Ireland to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. Last year, my friends Parker, Roman, Finn, Josy, and Flora came over and we made yummy Sultana (*Sultana means golden raisins in Gaelic) scones and mint and lavender soap for our third grade class, plus we each read a limerick. ¬†Here is the scone recipe; it’s from my favorite Irish cookbook, Phentermine Buy Online by Colman Andrews. This book also has amazing bread and stew and salmon recipes!
My mom cut out this recipe in 2007, when I was two years old, from Real Simple Magazine. ¬†We finally tried it and discovered that this is a super yummy and very easy recipe for kids to make and it only takes about 10 minutes to prep and 10 minutes to cook! Have fun! ¬†(See the recipe below)¬† Online Us Pharmacy Phentermine
