Life is Sweet with Candy Crafts
There is something about the month of December that beckons our inner Martha Stewart to surface. We want perfect: the perfect tree, the perfect present, a perfect platter of cookies, a perfect holiday with our families. However, the little matter of being human means perfection is unlikely. Let’s let go of Martha and perfection this December and go for pretty darn good with the help of Life is Sweet!
That need to craft something lovely doesn’t have to be fulfilled by a quilt that should have been started back in June or creating a Pinterest worthy toy kitchen set. We can craft, make it easy, make it fun and get the whole family involved!
Here at Life is Sweet our goal is for parents to share a holiday that is reminiscent of the past and help their children create memory worthy celebrations for their kids. Who can resist the simple charm of decorating a gingerbread man or a sugar cookie? We can’t! That’s why on Sunday, December 11th from 1 to 4 pm you can come by Life is Sweet and purchase a cookie and we’ll set you up right in our store to decorate it! You get to be the hero without the extra work!
Make it at home
If gingerbread houses are more your speed, we have old fashioned glass jars filled with all kinds of candy. We’ll be happy to help you pick the candy to decorate a gingerbread house with your kids, for your kids or with your grandchildren. Consider the possibilities: a roof on non-pareils, gum drop guided paths, trees of chocolate kisses or a colorful nerd-strewn walkway. Nothing says Christmas like gingerbread!
Or pick up one of our candy kits to take home and make some treats with your family, friends or a special play date. We have make a marshmallow snow man kits and gourmet s’mores. Why not pick up some of our Christmas crackers, some bulk candy and go home and create the kind of gifts that bring out the child in everyone?
Have them make it themselves
So often our lists have people who present a conundrum. You know your niece loved Legos last year, but this year she’s 12 and has changed so much. What’s a great gift? Give the gift of a craft they can make themselves and consume! We have bubble tea gifts right here in our Keene store. (No need to make the long trek to Nashua or Manchester to hit the mall!) Have a few teens or tweens to buy for? How about half a dozen cupcakes and toppings so they can decorate, (and eat) the cupcakes themselves?
