WW: Creations of the week {Linky}

Isaak had been making hand made puppets. He made them for Mica's friend birthday party that was on Saturday. I don't think Mica appreciated all the work that went into them though. Older brothers can be like that some times.

Some have googly eyes, some have marker eyes. Then he tore apart  popsicle sticks to to hold them up; attached them with tape.

I just love his creativity!


I made a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Cake for Mica's friend party. I was going to make his scarf/mask thing red. I guess Mica doesn't like that turtle as much as the others. To me it's cake. It all tastes the same. I guess in a kid's world it matters.


The cake was 2 round cakes layered on top of one another. I don't even frost between them. I just let the freezer stick them together. The sides were slightly cut. The cut pieces went on for his nose area. I used an orange fruit roll-up for his mask, dark chocolate ships for the eyes, 1/2 a red candy melt for the tongue and the rest was frosting.

I just always thought TMNT were an odd mix. What's usually considered slow turtles are ninjas. Then they like pizza. It's all so odd to me. My boys love them though.

What did you make this week?

hi Alissa! Yes, water is the best! I never have a problem with my body or mind when I choose water to drink. Others things, ya, = problems. hahahaha.

Love your son's creativity. And the cake is great. I must be odd, I liked TMNT growing up. Though I never did think about how odd it all was.

I like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, the original ones back when I was younger. I don't like how they look now in the new cartoons.

The handmade puppets are cute. At first, I thought they were having a masquerade party until I read it ;o)
