Frozen Waffles


Disney Frozen Fun Foods

Now, for making the waffles, you’ll just need to get creative with supplies. I used 4 Eggo waffles, bacon, peanut butter, cream cheese, craisins, bananas, chocolate hazelnut spread, blackberries, half a mini marshmallow, a carrot piece, and candy eyes. You can certainly swap items out depending on how healthy you want it to be, what you have on hand, and when you’re serving it. Blueberries, chocolate chips, a candy orange wedge segment, black licorice, fruit leather, pretzels, etc. are all swaps that would work well for some of the items.Eggo waffle Frozen snack suppliesFor Sven, I carved a section out of one waffle for his basic head shape and then used a small circle cutter in a second waffle to get his “muzzle”. You can see he’s covered in peanut butter. The nose & mouth are craisins, with the candy eyes and bacon antlers.Making Olaf & Sven Waffles

Super Cool Pipe Cleaner Woven Baskets

This is a favorite craft I used to make when I was little but it is  equally cool to make now, and the results are much nicer. You get to weave a plaid pattern with pipe cleaners, and then use the pipe cleaner fabric to decorate tin cans. You can really decorate other things with this awesome craft, too.

Cool Rainbow Bubble Snakes


Rainbow Bubble Snakes

Start by cutting the bottom of the water bottle off.  Next slide the sock over the bottom of the bottle.  We used colorful duct tape to secure our sock, but you could use a rubber band as well.  I love how quick and easy it was to make.  My kids love making things from our recycling.  Last summer they made their own sprinkler using some of the same materials and it is still the sprinkler of choice.

Bubble Snakes

Pour some dish soap into a shallow container with a little bit of water and gently mix.  Dip the sock covered bubble blower into the solution and gently blow.

We decided to add some color to the bubble snakes with food coloring.  The kids dropped the food coloring onto the sock covered end.

How To Make A Cool Penny Battery

This is a really cool instructable that shows you how to make a battery from pennies.
It really works!

Here’s How to Make a Penny Battery:

Okay, so I’ve looked around for an idea for an instructable. And I found one that I want to do my own rendition of, the penny battery. So this idea is not completely original, I’m not claiming it as mine. I’m just using the materials and methods that I think will be the most effective. My hope is to power and LED light or a small fan if possible. But if I make the led die, then I have sufficiently surpassed my expectations. Let’s get started.
Penny Battery Tutorial and Instructions

Step 1: Materials

These are all the things you will need. I will include my list as well as some substitutes that I’ve seen.

5-7 Pennies
Paper towels (I used shop towels, but I’ve seen everything from cardboard to cloth)
Lemon juice (salt or vinegar works too)
Sand paper
Tape-recommended
LED

Tutorial & Instructions

 

Step 2: Sand pennies

Take the sand paper and sand one side of each penny down til the copper is off that side and the zinc core is showing. Best method is to use your finger to move the penny on the sandpaper as far as I know. (Technically defacing currency is a federal offense or something like that, but I’m sure you won’t get arrested over 6 cents. Besides, it’s recycling so shut up.)

Step 3: Make lemon juice solution

 

Picture of Make lemon juice solution
So, from what I can tell others have used salt water, vinegar water, well I’m gunna use lemon water. Lemons are more acidic than vinegar so I’m hoping it’ll work better. Feel free to correct me if I’m wrong. But I will use 3/4 lemon juice, and maybe put some salt in for good measure.
