In a world that can sometimes seem tough and unkind, I love any opportunity to spread a little kindness and sunshine. I truly believe that their is still a lot of good out there, which is why I am beyond thrilled to be partnering with Cuties this holiday season, as a part of their #100daysofsunshine campaign, to share how our family will be spreading kindness, love and happiness to our friends and neighbors this holiday season by sharing our favorite snack, and one of our favorite DIY’s. We’ve been so fortunate this past year, to move to a new neighborhood where we were instantly welcomed with friendly open arms, and I want to embrace our good fortune with a small gesture to say thank you!
Not only do we use Cuties to add a pop of colorful flair to our holiday decor, but we also love eating these adorable little mandarins that are perfect for little hands. Ella in particular is obsessed. They’re healthy, seedless, and easy to peel, which makes them a great snack for at home and on-the-go. At home I keep Cuties in an easy-to-reach bowl so that my kids can help themselves (praise hands for a snack that I can feel good about them eating), but I also love to throw them in my diaper bag for myself and my own little cuties when we’re out and about! Coincidentally their bright orange color, and amazingly fragrant scent was the perfect addition to our DIY holiday potpourri.
I’ve always loved the idea of creating something hand/homemade to gift to friends and family during the holiday season. For the last few years, we have been making this stovetop potpourri, and it smells so incredible that I decided this year we should make some for gifting and spreading a little love and cheer to others. It is such a simple gift to throw together that my kids even helped with the assembly, but looks so pretty and festive all packaged up, and it makes your house smell insanely good. Having them be a part of creating this gift was fun for them, but also helped to show them how amazing giving back can feel.
Here’s what you’ll need to create your own stovetop holiday potpourri…
To each bag add…
1 handful of cranberries
2 cinnamon sticks
1 sprig of fresh rosemary
Then print out these free printable tags here, and tie up your bag with some festive ribbon!
We didn’t want to forget our smaller friends, so we also picked up some inexpensive buckets and filled them up with Cuties, so they wouldn’t feel left out when we deliver our gifts!
How are you spreading some sunshine this holiday season?
