DIY Superhero Capes

Hello friends! Today I have a quick craft for you all. It’s very simple, and I think you’re going to like it. You’re going to need your model, some fabric, scissors, a hair-tie, and glue/a needle and thread. Cut a cape that covers your model’s back. Now you’re going to attach the hair tie to the neck of the cape. You can either sew it or glue it. As you can see, I glued it. I’m not the best with this fabric glue, so it turned out a bit messy. Ta-da! Super Waffle is on his way to save the … Continue reading DIY Superhero Capes

DIY Snowboard ~ Winter Bearlympics 2022

Hello friends! Today we’re going to focus on snowboarding…and more specifically, how to make a mini snowboard. Are you ready? You will need foam, duct tape, a pen, and scissors. You’re going to start by drawing out this rectangular shape onto the foam. You’re going to want to slightly round the edges. Make sure the rectangle is a bit bigger than your model’s feet. As you can see, this ended up being perfect for Waffle. Okay, now we’re going to cut a piece of tape that’s a good deal longer than the board. Fold it in half. Tape it onto … Continue reading DIY Snowboard ~ Winter Bearlympics 2022

I’m going to be showing you all some cookies that I baked this holiday season! First up is a classic…chocolate chips! Then, I melted some chocolate and dipped the cookies in the chocolate. Yummy!

I made this fudge, which may be … Continue reading Waffle’s Christmas Cookies

Swirl’s Secret Santa

Hello friends! Today it’s time for the Small-fry’s Christmas gift exchange! This story is essentially two parts, selecting the gift and then the exchange. It follows Swirl, so enjoy! I stared at the slip of paper in my hand. “Cam Johnson,” was written on it in green ink. “What on Earth should I get for Cam?”  You see, the name on the paper was the person I had to buy a gift for. This year, we decided to do a Secret Santa gift exchange instead of getting a gift for every one of our friends.  I laughed at that idea. … Continue reading Swirl’s Secret Santa
