Being a frugal momma I strive to find ways to use things more than once. As I was cleaning up after our New years eve party I scooped a few things into a party hat to toss in the trash — and it hit me. Party hats are perfect vessels to hold snacks. Snacks for birthday parties, get to-gethers, or even movie night.
One of our favorite things to do together as a family is having movie night at home, gather around the television, watching a movie, and eating some snacks.
“Life is not complex. We are complex. Life is simple, and the simple thing is the right thing.” — Oscar Wilde
A project like this can be as simple or as complex as you want. We enjoy creating quick, quirky ways to make our movie nights more enjoyable and creating movie night snack cones is a way to involve the whole family.
Snack cones: (turn a party hat into a snack cone)
craft paper (any kind, any theme)
glue gun or adhesive of your choice
disassemble the party hat and lay it out flat on your craft paper of choice.
Trace the shape and cut it out.
Glue the paper in place around the edge and along the seem directly onto the “party hat.” Be creative by adding embellishments. This project will be perfect to include kids, grand kids, nieces or nephews. Stay in, enjoy your family, and most importantly be creative together. Creating fun little projects like this at home with children will make them feel involved and create special memories that they will cherish.
