How to make Star Wars X-Wing crayon party favors

One of our favorite little Jedis celebrated his fifth birthday recently and we wanted to make something fun for his goodie bags.

Yoda meringue cookies piped

Yummy Yoda meringue cookies

Write this post in Yoda-speak we will not. At least we’ll try. Oh wait, there is no try. Whew, now that the Yoda jokes are out of the way, let’s talk about meringues.

Princess Leia Buns for Beanie Boos

Everyone in our house is excited about tomorrow being May the fourth, even the Beanie Boos! This bunny wanted to try out Princess Leia buns and we couldn’t say no. You will definitely need a glue gun for this one – the pipe cleaners won’t stay curled for long enough for regular glue to set. […]
