Saturday DIY: Lego Desk

With Kyle’s (the youngest) birthday right around the corner, and him being a HUGE Lego fan, it only makes sense to make him a Lego desk. I’ve seen TONS of pictures, but never any good tutorials, so I enlisted the help of my mom and eventually my stepdad to build him one, and I have to say that I think it turned out pretty darn awesome!

Without further ado, here’s the recipe!

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Using a food processor or blender, grind your oats until they’re powder.
  3. In a bowl, beat together the banana and peanut butter until smooth. A few small chunks of banana here and there is ok. The dough should stick together, but shouldn’t be sticky.
  4. Reserve about a tablespoon of ground oatmeal and pour the rest into the banana peanut butter mixture and mix until combined.
  5. Dust your surface with the reserved ground oatmeal and roll your dough to about a 1/4 inch thickness.
  6. Cut into desired shapes and place on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet.
  7. Bake treats for approximately 15 minutes, or until the edges start to brown.
  8. Cool completely before storing in an airtight container for up to a week

You can add additional peanut butter if the dough is too dry or additional oats if too sticky.

Valentine You’re A Star Tutorial and Template

Hello there are welcome to this week’s DIY Saturday! This week we are making “Valentine You’re A Star” valentine’s that work perfect for the kids (or yourself, especially if you’re a teacher!) to give out at school. I hope that you enjoy it!

Valentine You're A Star

Valentine You’re A Star Tutorial

Without further ado, let’s get to the tutorial!

Materials needed:

Step 1

Download the template and put your pretty colored paper in the printer. The template has 4 valentines per sheet, so you’ll need to count how many valentines you need and divide by four to get the number of sheets that you need to print out.

Now get to printing! (Simple right?)

Step 2

Valentine You're A Star 1Now that you’ve printed the template on pretty pretty paper (yes, I used a multitude of colors, because not all kids like pink and red), it’s time to start having some fun.

You’ll want to trim your headers and footers off the pages, and then cut them into four equal sizes. This goes faster if you have a paper cutter, but it will still go plenty fast if the only tool you have at your disposal is scissors.

Step 3

Valentine You're A Star 2After you’re done cutting them into their individual pieces, you get to have even more fun!

First, have the kiddos (or yourself) sign them the cards.

Then, get out your Starbursts and your glue dots. Try not to eat all of your Starbursts while you’re attaching them to the Valentines! I know it’s hard, but you really need to give these out! 😉

Put your glue dot on the center of the star, and then place the Starburst on top of it. Simple as that, I promise!
