Christmas Tree Food Recipe

WATCH Mrs. Katie and Jonboy MAKE this RECIPE HERE

1 gallon water

1 copper penny, optional

4 t. chlorine bleach

4 t. sugar dissolved in bit of hot water

4 t. vinegar

1 can citrus soda may be substituted for the sugar-water and vinegar

NOTES: Add the vinegar and bleach to the water. Do NOT add them together alone as hazardous vapors will result. Make sure to label the contents so no one accidentally drinks the tree food.

Combine all ingredients and fill tree stand or flower vase as needed.

This mixture should last about a week on the counter or two weeks in the refrigerator.

Big & Little Hands–Hard at Work

Welcome friends, we are truly happy that you have chosen to be here with us. Encouragement, Education and Entertainment is what you can expect to find here, our little home-on-the-web. Please, be welcome. 

Our desire is to walk life with as many folks as the Lord will allow our paths to cross. We hope you will find a community with us at HERITAGE WAYS, whether it is here, or our daily Instagram posts where 1300+ folks follow and gather, sharing life. It is there that we share our daily lives, photos and goings-on. Consider joining us on Instagram by following the widget-link near the bottom of this page.

What a great first month we had here on our little home-on-the-web! Thank-you for your part in that happiness! And for your unending GRACE we are so very appreciative as we continue to learn and grow in community.

At the end of each month, beginning with this one, we plan to give you a little run-down (right here on our homepage) of what was added throughout the website with the hopes it’ll make your life a tad easier as you take advantage of our content. Don’t forget that you can utilize the search bar, as well, to locate posts, recipes, project ideas.

For now, you should know this is **the** place to fulfill your colorful hand-woven all-cotton hot pad dreams and needs!

Our littles are so excited to choose just the right colors to make beautiful hot pads. These are the good, sturdy kind! You should have seen their excitement when they sold their first set last week! Little Miss Homemaker jumped up and down and clapped with joy. The fellows asked me to take them to Hobby Lobby for more cotton loops, which they paid for themselves.

We have toiled over the most economical way to mail the hot pads to you and think we may have hit on the secret formula.

With each package you receive THREE colorful hand-woven hot pads, one made by each little with a note indicating such. After shipping and packaging costs are covered, each young entrepreneur earns $2 along with their adding $2 to an envelope designated for more material purchases.

The littles are taught to divide any earnings into three envelopes: GIVE, SAVE, SPEND. This is how we teach good stewardship, responsibility and an entrepreneurial spirit.

Won’t you please encourage them by purchasing a set of hot pads for yourself or someone else? I’ll bet a sweet shut-in lady or gentleman could use a set. We are happy to mail the package and sweet little cards and drawings to anyone you request. The children love, love, LOVE to give cards and notes to folks! Just let us know in the comments of your purchase page how you need us to fill your request.
