This is not a crafty blog. I am not Martha Stewart. And I very rarely pretend to be. I really prefer to buy professionally designed “things” than to make them myself. Or, in the case of the Minimal Challenge … not acquire any “thing” …
But, I feel that this particular craft is noteworthy for a couple of reasons.
- When I complain about something (like the overabundance of Halloween candy), I like to offer solutions instead of just problems.
- Our surprise snow trip in the mountains this weekend was canceled on account of rain and avalanche warnings, leaving my children disappointed and bored.
- It’s free. Which is my favorite price point.
So, I improvise. We don’t have snow balls, but we can sure make popcorn balls.
And, with the left-over lollipops and candy corn from the Halloween buckets …
… we are able to fashion a whole snowman family.
Minimizing Halloween candy. That is the name of this game.
Now, I just have to figure out how to improvise sledding on a flat, grass surface …
