Things have been nutty here lately. I still feel like Chanukah just ended, but apparently I'm wrong, because it's Tu B'Shvat.
I really like Tu B'Shvat, it's like an unexpected gift in the middle of the winter. Tu B'Shvat is the new Year for the trees, and who doesn't like a New Year. The perfect time, while it's still freezing out, to make some more resolutions, specifically to (re)make the ones that I thought about making in January. Let's just cut to the chase. Today is a fantastic day to make a (re)commitment to exercising and eating healthy. So hop to it. (And hopping burns calories, so there ya go).
I have nothing planned for Tu B'Shvat this year, so here's a look back at what we did last year. And if you are just joining us (welcome!), and wow, look at all this new stuff here!
Here's the first one: My girls and I had a great time dehydrating fruit last year. You can see it here.
And here's the second: We Mod Podged the heck out of some wax paper and tissue paper and made these fruit sun catchers. And if you can find your Succah decoration box in the basement (go you!), throw these in after Tu B'Shvat is over and you'll have a fun surprise come October!
You can do either of these projects in honor of Tu B'Shvat, or neither. Sometimes it's just easier to go outside and hug a tree. That way there's no mess to clean up.
Are you a Mom?
Of course you are,
your shirt is dirty :)
