Ah, snow days! Our family loves being snowed in, especially during December. The team spends our day baking and making all sorts of wonderful things for Christmas. We drink hot chocolate and eat a few too many cookies. We take naps. We play outside. Days like these are a gift.

Here are some of our favorite holidays projects, designed with snowy December days in mind:

1) Cookies for Friends 2) Cinnamon Dough Ornaments 3) Santa Puppet 4) Mason jar snow globes

Happy making everyone!

Last Christmas, CP#1 and MP signed up for a kids’ wreath making workshop at O’Donals Nursery in Gorham. The nursery provides decorative greens and wreath making supplies for a small fee. When we arrived, there were long tables filled with boughs of White Pine, Cedar, and Balsam. Jeff O’Donal, our patient instructor, showed us how to arrange the greens in a fan shape before placing them on a wreath ring.

The holidays are fast approaching, and as long as you’re running around getting ready, you might as well indulge in one of Maine’s best treats. The Gelato Fiasco, which is located in Portland and Brunswick, is best known for its creamy, inspired flavors of gelato—a dense, Italian ice cream made with less air than the American version. Their sorbetto is equally delicious for those who are dairy free. What we love? The flavors are made from scratch daily.
