10. The Water Blob Experiment
|Water Blob Experiment|
Who knew a $2 experiment based on the water blob I saw on Ginger Snap Crafts would be so popular. We actually made a blob twice this past summer, and it made for hours of fun!
9. Bunny Cookies
Cookies I made for Easter out of Nutter Butters were a big hit. I will have to remember them for when Easter rolls around again in a few months.
8. Owl Pumpkin
My Owl Pumpkin was actually not a surprise. I got a great response with it when I shared it, and it was one of my favorite crafts this year.
7. Sweet Sushi
I made sweet sushi out of rice krispies, gummy worms and fruit roll ups to go on my 15 yr old daughter's birthday cake. We went out for real sushi, and then had this for dessert. I am not sure what she would like to do for the Sweet 16 this year.
6. Cooking with Kyle-Chicken Salad Surprise
|Cooking with Kyle-Chicken Salad|
Kyle was excited to make the top 10. This was his first Cooking with Kyle recipe. He showed how to make a really delicious homemade chicken salad. I know he has not been sharing many recipes lately. Homework has been taking up a lot of this time, but hopefully we will see many new ones in 2013.
5. Pot of Gold

My St. Patrick's Day homemade Pot of Gold was also a big hit. It was not too hard to make with dollar store stones and a plastic Halloween cauldron.
4. Dollar Store Display Bowls
|Dollar Store Display Bowls|
My dollar store display bowls were a bit of a surprise. I embellished a few items from the dollar store and turned them into colorful display bowls. I guess a lot of people need colorful bowls. :)
3. Crafting with Kara - Cardboard Tube Flowers
|Cardboard Tube Flowers|
Kara was also thrilled to make it into the top ten. She has shared several kids crafts this past year, but the most viewed was her cardboard tube flowers she saw in Family Fun. This was a perfect craft for Mothers Day.
2. Snowman/Snow Day Party
|Snow Day Party|
My second most viewed post was actually pretty early in 2012, and timely to be shared again now. There seemed to be a lot of interest in my Snowman-Snow Day Party post. I shared several fun ideas and treats for kids to enjoy on a snowy day.
1. How to Make a Truffula Tree
|How to make Truffula Trees|
My number one post of the year is actually not something I made myself. The month of March is reading month in a lot of schools. My daughter's school's theme this past year was based on The Lorax. Each of the kids got to go on a field trip to see the movie at the local theater. I am a volunteer in the school media center which had been decorated with Truffula trees for the annual book fair. It seems there were a lot of people who were having Dr Seuss themed parties, and needed to know how to make a Truffula tree. I have to say, Truffula Trees are really cool, and these look like the ones in the movie.
I hope you enjoyed my look back at my posts of 2012, I hope to share many more ideas with you in 2013!
