Beer

These old ads are real! Just last week in the office we were discussing how far women have progressed. I shared a memory of a downtown Minneapolis restaurant, the Oak Grill, where women were only allowed in if accompanied by a man. Dave recalls his aunt taking him there as a young boy. Bingo, she qualified to luncheon there.

The next two ads below are not for the faint of heart.

Heinz

This ad claims that most husbands nowadays have stopped beating their wives. Yawn no more.

This guy must be one of the exceptions.

Popsicle Stick Doll House

If you have a Popsicle stick collection you can build a doll house. What do you think Betsy? Time to get crafting. For any of you short on Popsicle sticks, most craft stores stock them. One Crafty Mumma has the pictorial and instructions for the doll house pictured above. She used 250 sticks along with a glue gun to built her doll house – from stick to move in ready.

If you are not a DIYer, Totally Kids fun furniture & toys has many other doll house options for you.

M&M Flowers

We know a few Moms who would love these M & M flowers for Mother’s Day. So…look we we are making for this week’s Recipe for FUN. Looks like a great cook together with the kiddos and we’re all anxious to get started. An extra bag of M & Ms will be necessary though.

Thank you Ruthanne from Easy Baked for the inspiration. She added the M & M flowers on top of her flower pot cupcakes that are adorable. We will be presenting our flowers as shown in the picture to some M & M crazed Moms. Ruthanne has a lovely pictorial and instructions, so pop on over to Easy Baked and have fun creating your own flowers to pot or arrange in a candy filled vase.

Wishing a happy, happy Mother’s Day to all of our friends near and far away.

Pretend Birthday Cake

Celebrate your birthday everyday with a pretend birthday cake complete with decorations and candles.  You can have your cake and eat it too. I meant have your pretend birthday cake and play with it too. Our classic birthday cake has been a favorite birthday gift for preschoolers for many years.

Of course the best way to bake a pretend birthday cake is in a pretend red retro oven.
