ABC...EASY AS 1-2-3

 I have had a few requests to know how to make sidewalk chalk, and I thought it would be a great time to share the recipe while the Silly Cone letter and number molds are being offered at 20% off for Party Wagon friends!

1.  MIX 1 CUP PLASTER OF PARIS WITH 3/4 CUP WATER

2.  ADD TEMPERA PAINT FOR COLOR

3.  BLEND WELL, POUR IN MOLDS, SET FOR 24 HOURS

I tried to make it 3 easy steps!  It is easy-- just messy so plan for a mess and have fun! 

REMEMBER THAT YOU CAN GET YOUR ABC AND 123 TRAYS FOR 20% OFF THROUGH MEMORIAL DAY!  ORDER AT WWW.SILLYCONE.US   AND TYPE IN "WAGON" FOR THE DISCOUNT!

CAKE BY NUMBERS

The creative girls at One Charming Party were so kind to share these photos of the cake they created using the number mold trays from Silly Cone.  Because I only have the alphabet trays (20% discount, here I come!), I am excited to be able to show you the fantastic way One Charming Party put them to good use!

I love how beautiful and simple the cake is- with big impact!  Thank you, ONE CHARMING PARTY for sharing the photos with us!

My mind spins with all of the ways I can use these number molds this summer to liven up a party and to help my children remember all the great things they learned in school!  Educational and fun!

You have a chance to win a number mold tray!  Just leave a comment after this post to be entered into the giveaway.

FATHER'S DAY FUN

The ideas really never end with these cool Silly Cone alphabet trays!  The kids and I can't wait to use them for Father's Day!  While the kids would like to express their love in full sentences (more to eat!), I managed to reign it in a bit with 3 little letters...

Father's Day breakfast on the porch never looked so cute!  A fun way to let dads know how special they are!

I used white chocolate squares and melted them in the microwave.  We poured in the melted chocolate and let it set- super easy!!

I also love the way the butter looks on these pancakes- adorable!

I think a batch of brownies would be a lot of fun, too!  Spell out what you like for a sweet message!

Remember that SILLY CONE is offering my readers and Facebook fans 20% off through Memorial Day!  Visit their website and type in the word WAGON at checkout to receive the discount...

EAT YOUR WORDS!

My mom gave my kiddos these great letter trays as a gift a while back, and they have been in constant use ever since!  We love them and use them in so many ways.  Here is what they are saying lately (with pink lemonade)...so yummy on a hot day!

These are fantastic and so I just had to share!  They are made by a company called SILLY CONE, INC. because, you guessed it, they are made of silicone.  They can go in the freezer or the oven- which means there are so many uses!!!

Broken crayons become new again- just put them in the trays and melt them in the oven...

The Silly Cone folks even found a way to make sidewalk chalk...

So, speaking of fun and sharing...the fun folks at SILLY CONE have decided to give all of my readers 20% off of their purchases!!  Just enter the word WAGON at checkout to receive the discount!

   AND...two lucky ducks will receive a number tray for FREE!  You can enter for a chance to win one of the trays by leaving a message under the "comment" section on my blog- you can even just type in "silly cone" to enter.  Be sure to leave your email address so that I can contact you if you are the winner.

The 20% discount is valid until midnight on Monday, May 30.

I will draw the winners for the Silly Cone number trays on Friday, May 27th!  You may enter as often as you like.


The possibilities are endless!  I love how they help keep my preschooler up on his letters and numbers in a fun way!  Check back soon for more uses for Silly Cone trays!  In the meantime, be sure to visit   http://sillycone.myshopify.com/collections/all and be sure to type in WAGON to receive the 20% discount!

THANK YOU, SILLY CONE!!  YOUR PRODUCT IS FANTASTIC AND SO ARE YOU!!!
