Weekend Wishes :The snowflake Edition

Hello there intrepid blog readers ūüôā
Welcome to our wintry corner of the Cotswolds.
We know plenty of you have been out enjoying the snow with littlies.
We’ve been searching for some great ideas to share with you…
But first, here is a glimpse of Minchinhampton life under the flakes!

Making the most of a cosy afternoon browsing POLYVORE
Here is what we would wrap up in over this chilly weekend!

Check out these amazing Ginger Snowflake Cookies.
A steady hand would be useful for this precise icing.
Each one is individual- we like this!

Look at the pretty colours!
These could be seriously addictive, don’t you think?

If you’ve got tiny tots we bet you can’t wait to try this one out!
food coloured water in bottles and go out painting!

This one has already been quite popular with our friends on facebook already
Fill balloons with coloured water (food colouring)
Leave them in the snow overnight
Then in the morning…..Giant marbles!
This would be fun for all of the family!

If being inside is more your thing,

how about making a Paper Snowflake curtain?

Pretty aaaaaaaand topical!
