Title: Tissue paper Treasures

Summary: We all probably have lots of tissue paper left over from the holiday season.  We will discuss a few ideas of activities and crafts to do with children to use of some of the tissue paper.

With valentines just around the corner, there are many gifts you can have children make to share with friends and families.  Using tissue paper and a small empty box, you can create a wonderful gift of love.  Or perhaps you need to add some decorations to your home.  Why not have the children create some stain glass.  We will explore to different ways to create stain glass; one with glue and one with mac tac.

 
   

We will also learn how to make tissue flowers.  These can be used as decorations, or just to remind us Spring is on the way.

 

Finally, we will create our own fishing game.  The children will have fun playing and learning with fish they created themselves.

1st Segment Title: Healthy Holiday Party Snacks for Kids

Time: approx. 3 minutes

Summary: During the holiday season, we are either hosting or attending many different functions with our families that involve food. Often there are not a lot of options for children’s more selective palettes. We will share some fun, healthy party snacks that the children can help prepare and the whole family will enjoy. We will make mini-pizza appetizers and a healthy dip for veggies.

2nd Segment Title: Local Holiday Party foods

Time: approx. 3 minutes

Summary: During the holiday season, it is simple to continue to use local Manitoba ingredients in your entertaining. With the end of the farmer’s market season, it is sometimes more difficult to locate local foods. We will be featuring a number of local ingredients from cheeses to honey to meats to seeds and breads. We will prepare and feature them in a festive display that allows your guests to interact with their food.

Title: Quick and Easy Ways to Present Homemade Treats

Summary: With the holiday season approaching many of us start to bake treats to share with friends and neighbours. The dilema is always how to transport the treats. Discover some quick, imexpensive ways to share your treats and not worry about getting your plate or container back.

We will look at several store bought options including cello bags, melamine plates and decorative boxes. Then we will explore ways to take inexpensive items and make them more fun and festive. Specifically, we will look at to "fancy-up" a plain paper plate and turn a regular bag closure into a snowman. We will also create a mini-muffin holder out of a plastic wrap box.

Finally, we will create a pedestal serving tray. This can used to both transport and serve the treats.
