Students at Sandy Hook Elementary school will be headed back to school after the New Year at a new location. Some local Newtown parents are looking to create a “Winter Wonderland” in the students’ new school.
Parents and children can work together to make snowflakes for the winter wonderland. All styles, colors, designs are welcome. This project is NOT a memorial, so please no names of victims. When you are finished with your snowflakes, they can be mailed to the following address by January 12:
60 Connolly Parkway, Building 12, Suite 103
Hamden CT 06514
I am simply going to tell the boys we are making snowflakes to decorate a school—I know they will be so excited to help craft them. Let’s help make their Winter Wonderland a magical place!
Yesterday I put together the little cookie boxes for James’ schoolmates. Since this is his last week at his current preschool, we wanted to do something a little special for all of his friends. I think they turned out really well—thanks to Martha Stewart baking supplies (boxes come with the string, labels, and tissue paper)! I picked up mine on clearance for $3.99 for a package of 6.
Since I baked the school batches, I let the boys do their own last night. It was my first experience using one of Trader Joe’s baking mixes. I was surprised to open the box of cookie mix at home to discover that it also contained icing and sprinkles! Score!
