A step by step guide, On How to make a Throwing Game from a Diaper Box!

What toddler doesn't love to throw things?! How about giving them an opportunity to throw things with a Throwing Game & turn it into a learning experience.  It's a great exercise for hand/eye coordination and motor skills!  You can check out for more throwing games for kids.  One game that the site has listed is bean bag throw, which is similar to this game.  I used plastic Easter eggs, but later I plan to sew small bean or corn bags to be used with the game. I'm certain Ana will enjoy that, because when my husband & his friends play Corn Hole (it's like Bean Bag Toss, except the bags are filled with corn) she loves to "Help" them play.

How To Make the Throwing Game

What you will need:
Diaper Box
3 Plastic Cups
Glue/ Mod Podge
Colored Paper
Paint Brush/Sponge
(Optional: fabric, wrapping paper, ribbon, stickers can all be used for decorating the box)

Step 1:  TRACE the bottom of the cup three times & cut each hole out (You will have to make the holes a little larger, so the cups fit all the way in)

Step 2: SPREAD glue or mod podge all over box with sponge or paint brush then cover with paper. Add a layer of mod podge on top of paper.  Adriana was the decorator & I just helped:))) She used glitter & painted spots with paint.   This could be a great game for a Birthday party, so you could decorate to match the theme of the party.

Step 3: FLIP out the side flap of box, so the box is at a small tilt.

Step 4:  THROW eggs to start playing! If your little players are old enough to understand, you can make cups worth different amount of points.

We have been playing with this game for days. Adriana has had a great time with it. 
Oh! & did I mention it was absolutely free to make?! Which is pretty awesome considering I have seen similar games for $100+ in stores.

I hope you enjoy, I know we are!

Cookies & Cream Fudge, Is as Easy as 1,2,3

Cookies & Cream Fudge

Yesterday, I was trying to think of something yummy & delicious to bring to a get together. The first thing I thought of was Cookies & Cream Fudge.  I made it for Christmas, and it turned out to be a crowd pleaser.  It takes very little prep & cook time, which is something I REALLY needed considering I'm due to have my baby very soon(standing more than I have to is just no fun!)  I found this recipe at  I apologize for not taking many pictures, but you have to work fast with this fudge, because it cools & hardens very quick making it difficult to work with.

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 6 minutes
Cooling Time: 60 minutes
Makes 48 pieces



  • 3 cups granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) butter or margarine
  • 2/3 cup (5 fl.-oz. can)  Evaporated Milk Nestle
  • 2 cups (12-oz. pkg.) Nestle Toll House Premier White Morsels
  • 1 jar (7 oz.) marshmallow crème
  • 1/2 cup finely crushed Oreo Cookies
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)
  • 1 cup crumbled Oreo Cookies


1.  LINE 9-inch-square baking pan with foil.

2.  COMBINE sugar, butter and evaporated milk in medium, saucepan. Bring to full rolling boil, stirring constantly. Boil, stirring constantly, for 3 minutes. Remove from heat. 
3.  STIR in morsels, marshmallow crème, finely crushed cookies and vanilla extract. Pour into prepared pan. Sprinkle crumbled cookies on top. Gently swirl cookies into fudge using a knife or wooden skewer without touching bottom of pan. Refrigerate for 1 hour or until firm. Lift from pan; remove foil. Cut into 48 pieces. Store in airtight container in refrigerator.
**Steps 2 & 3 are the parts where it's important to move quick, because as the fudge cools it's more difficult  to work with.

I Hope You Enjoy!

Pure & Sweet

Recently at a Birthday Party, I had the pleasure of witnessing some Pure & Sweet things going on.  Watching Adriana  pick flowers just for Me! It was a party in the country, so yes rubber boots were a must ;))

This just melted my heart...Adriana got chocolate icing on her shirt, and her friend Sweet S (without direction from anyone) quickly cleaned Adriana's shirt. Shortly after this all the kids run off and play, but Adriana was stopped by the Birthday boy with a napkin in hand to clean the chocolate off of her face. Kids can be so pure & sweet!  I so enjoyed watching the other kids look after & take care of my lil Ana.
